This Chicken Skewers Recipe is a new spin on my Spiced Chicken Kebabs Recipe that I’ve shared previously. Probably an Asian/Chinese-style one as I had used honey, oyster sauce and fish sauce to marinate the meat.
Opted for chicken leg meat with skin-on (look at that caramelised skin!) and introduced extra vegetables to give that crunch and colour so the skewers wouldn’t look that dull and boring. ? Of course, it’s always good to eat more veggies too. ?
This Chicken Skewers Recipe can be prepared the night before and can be made ready within half an hour so it’s definitely a hassle-free weeknight dinner recipe for busy cooks. Plus it’s fun to eat on sticks – something that the whole family especially kids would enjoy.
If you’re planning for a BBQ, these skewers would cook perfectly over a grill with that added smokiness though they can be easily prepared over the stovetop and/or in the oven too.
I served these chicken skewers with Greek Yogurt and Kimchi Pasta. The combination was just delicious. Appetising pasta. Sweet, savoury, moist and succulent chicken on sticks. Hmmm. Yum.
This recipe makes 8 skewers that are good for 3-4 persons. If possible, try to cut the chicken leg meat into 24 bite-sized pieces (est. 3 pieces per stick). Make sure the vegetables are cut around the same size/width too so when you thread the ingredients on the sticks, the skewers will look neat. Enjoy this Chicken Skewers Recipe!
Don’t forget to soak the bamboo sticks in water first to prevent them from burning in the oven or over the grill.
