Chicken Yuan Yaki/鶏の幽庵焼き

Japanese Food
Yuan yaki refers to a yakimono (grilled dish) made by first marinating slices of fish, for example, in a mixture of soy sauce, mirin, and sake (for example, equal amounts of them), usually plus slices of yuzu (or other citrus fruit), and then grilling.  It is said that yuan yaki was invented by Kitamura Yuan, a master of tea ceremony in the Edo period.
