Sweet & Spicy Chicken Skewers
Servings: 4 servings
These sweet and spicy chicken skewers are ridiculously easy to make, yet super tasty! It’s a fun way to cook chicken breast, and if you omit Sriracha, it’s still plenty delicious and a huge hit with little ones!
- 1 lb chicken breast boneless, skinless
- 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.
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.
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.
