Spicy Sesame Chicken Kebabs
The other night was a grilling night and we decided to do some chicken kebabs. I marinated the chicken in a spicy sesame marinade and then threaded the pieces on skewers and grilled them. We served them over sweetened Jasmine rice (just add a little sugar to the cooking water).
1 Tbl freshly grated ginger
2 garlic cloves grated on a micro plane
2 Tbl vegetable oil
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
4 Tbl honey
1 Tbl sesame oil
1 Tbl granulated sugar
1 Tbl sambal oelek (or other spicy chili sauce)
1 tsp toasted sesame seeds
4 6 to 8 ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts
4 wooden skewers (about 12 inches long) which you've soaked in water for at least 30 minutes
Sliced green onion for garnish (optional)
Whisk together all ingredients except the chicken and set aside. Cut the chicken into cubes about 1 1/2 inches. Place the chicken pieces in a zippered freezer bag and pour in the marinade. Marinade in the fridge for at least an hour or two.
When ready to grill, thread the chicken pieces on to the skewers. Pour the marinade into a small sauce pan and boil it for about 4 or 5 minutes.
Grill, brushing with the marinade until done.
