Everything but the feathers !
Yakitori restaurant is one of the must-go place if you travel to Japan. Yaki means to grill and Tori means chicken so Yakitori literally means char grilled chicken, on skewers to be specific. You can choose either salt or soy sauce glaze for the seasoning. Every part of chicken other than the feathers is used for yakitori. Breast, thigh, wing, heart, liver, skin, muscle, neck...even cartilage. Cartilage might be a bit difficult for people who have never tried it before but it's my favorite. The texture is so unique and you almost feel like you are eating eraser or plastic but the funny texture is the beauty of cartilage. You might dislike it at the first bite but you become addicted to it when you keep going. Give it a try !
