Yakitori is the word for a Japanese kabob. They're traditionally made with chicken, but I'm vegetarian, so I prepare mine with 14 ounces of extra-firm tofu.—Kim Arrington, Collegedale, Tennessee

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce, divided
  • 1/3 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 4 quarts water
  • 5 packages (3 ounces each) ramen noodles
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons sake
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced

Directions

In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup soy sauce, broth, honey, garlic powder and ginger. Pour 1/2 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Add chicken and broccoli; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
Drain chicken and broccoli; discard marinade. On eight metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread chicken and broccoli. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, lightly coat the grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-7 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, turning once.
In a Dutch oven, bring water to a boil. Add noodles (discard seasoning packets or save for another use); cook for 2-3 minutes or just until tender.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute garlic in oil for 1 minute. Add sake; bring to a boil. Cook until liquid is reduced by half; stir in remaining soy sauce. Drain noodles; add noodles and green onions to pan. Toss to coat.
Heat reserved marinade; drizzle over yakitori and noodles. Yield: 4 servings.
