Yakitori, grilled chicken, is a Japanese type of skewered chicken.
It is made from several bite-sized pieces of chicken meat, or chicken offal, skewered on a bamboo skewer and barbecued, usually over charcoal.
Diners ordering yakitori usually have a choice of having it served with salt (and sometimes lemon juice) or with tare sauce, which is generally made up of mirin, sake, soy sauce and sugar. If tare sauce is specified, the skewers are repeatedly dipped into a tall pot containing the sauce (usually twice, but occasionally three times) during the grilling process.
