Servings: 6
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breast - cut into small bite pieces (about 1 inch cubes).
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup pure honey
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • wooden skewers
  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oil, honey, soy sauce, coriander, ginger, black pepper and garlic. Reserve a small amount of marinade for basting, so the basting sauce doesn't touch any raw poultry.

  4. Preheat the grill for high heat. 

  5. Remove chicken from marinade and thread onto wooden skewers.
  6. Lightly oil the grill. Place the skewers on the grill and cook the chicken satay for about 4 - 5 minutes per side or until cooked. Turning and brushing kabobs with reserved marinade sauce frequently.

    My kids love kabobs! Eating anything off of a stick automatically makes it taste better. These sound awesome.
