  • Wooden skewers


  • 1 lb chicken breast boneless, skinless

For marinade:

  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons Sriracha Note 1
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce Note 2
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves grated
  • ½ tablespoon fresh grated ginger


  • Lime wedges optional
  • Fresh cilantro optional


  • Soak the wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • In a small bowl, whisk together honey, Sriracha, soy sauce, garlic and ginger.
  • Cut chicken breast into bite-size cubes, about 1-inch. Place them in a bowl and pour in the marinade. Mix well and marinate for about 30 minutes.
  • Thread the marinated chicken cubes into the skewers, about 4-5 pieces on each. Arrange the chicken skewers on a baking sheet, lined with a foil.
  • Bake chicken skewers until fully cooked, 15-20 minutes, turning the skewers half way.

Air-Fryer Instructions:

  • Place the skewers in an air-fryer and cook for about 10 minutes, or until cooked through, at 375°F, turning the skewers half way.

Grilling Instructions:

  • Preheat the grill to medium high. Lightly oil the grates and grill the chicken skewers for about 10 minutes, or until cooked through.


Note 1: Sriracha adds a nice kick! If you're sensitive to spicy food, try with 1/2 tablespoon of Sriracha and then add more if needed. But as mentioned above, you can completely omit it to keep it kid-friendly.
Note 2: I use regular Kikkoman’s All-Purpose soy sauce.
