Hi friends– Bar-b-que season is just around the corner. So last week we jumped the gun a little and grilled these chicken skewers for a table full of family. The great grandparents liked it just fine and the kids ate the chicken off the skewers like popsicles (more fun that way!).
It’s a great recipe to make ahead when you’re having a group– just let it marinate away in the fridge all afternoon while you pull the rest of the dinner together. Then pop it on the grill for a few minutes when you’re ready to eat…
GINGER SOY CHICKEN SKEWERS
3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tab. sugar*
2 tab. vinegar
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
Whisk together the marinade ingredients til thoroughly blended and pour them into a flat baking dish or tray big enough to hold your skewers.
3 large chicken breasts
1 green bell pepper, cut to 1′ chunks
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1″ chunks
1 onion, cut into 1″ chunks
Thread the chicken, peppers and onion onto the skewers and lay them in the marinade. Turn them to coat all sides and you can give them a couple more turns during the time they are marinating to they absorb all the flavors. Marinate 1 to 6 hours in the fridge.
Then cook them on a hot grill, until the marinade coating chars a bit and the chicken is cooked through– just about 6 to 8 minutes per side.
