Thai Chicken Skewers

This recipe originated from one I found on Pinterest.  It's pretty simple, though I did make a couple tweaks to the original- adding ginger, combining both soy and fish sauce, and skewering it (faster cook times and more kid friendly). Next time, I'm going to add lime juice to the marinade and/or drizzled over the final product (I heart limes!) and see how that works.

And here it is...delicious chicken in 4 easy steps!


2 chicken breasts
1 tsp minced ginger
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbs low sodium soy sauce
1 Tbs fish sauce
1 Tbs sesame oil
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped

1. Combine ginger, garlic, soy sauce, fish oil, sesame oil and cilantro in a large bowl or ziplock bag.

2. Cut the chicken breast into large chunks (1-2 inches).

3. Place chicken into the bowl of marinade and let it sit for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerater.

4. Heat a grill and skewer the chicken pieces. Grill for about 15 minutes (depending on how hot the grill is and how big your chicken pieces are), turning half way through.


P.S. Kids love eating food on sticks!
