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.

Honey, Lime, and Sriracha Chicken Skewers

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.
