I decided to make some sweet and spicy Asian chicken skewers for dinner. I found a terrific recipe on Once Upon a Chef that looked delicious. I adapted it a bit so it wouldn’t be too spicy for my kids. I marinated the pieces of chicken, skewered them, then cooked them in my grill pan. I served a little bit of the reserved marinade as a sauce over the cooked skewers. The meat was tender and flavorful – I loved the marinade. The skewers were a big hit with everyone and we gobbled them all up – no leftovers. This chicken paired nicely with the Sesame Garlic Wilted Spinach.
Combine the honey, soy sauce, lime juice, oil, lime zest, garlic, ginger, and sriracha sauce together in a bowl. Blend with an immersion blender until creamy. Remove 2 tablespoons of marinade to a dish;set aside for later use. Add the pieces of trimmed chicken to the marinade; mix until evenly coated. Seal with plastic wrap and place into the refrigerator to marinate for 6-24 hours.
Remove the chicken from the refrigerator 15 minutes prior to cooking. Thread the pieces of chicken onto skewers, folding the pieces in half if they are long and thin. Heat a large grill pan, that’s been coated in cooking spray, over medium high heat. Add the chicken skewers to the HOT pan. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 8-10 minutes. Flip the skewers and continue cooking for another 8-10 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from the pan and place on a serving plate. Sprinkle the top with fresh cilantro and serve with the reserved marinade. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
