Grilled Asian Sweet and Spicy Chicken Skewers over Brown Rice

Grilled Asian Sweet and Spicy Chicken SkewersI know we’re in August and all, but I’m just now getting into grilling! It took me most of the summer to think “yeah, lets use the grill!” and now that I’m all gung ho about it, summer is nearly done.

Noooooooooooooooo!

Pretty sure that’s how it always happens. #typical #ironic #nowIwannasingAlanisMorissett 

I do believe this happened one time years ago where I wanted something Christmas related in June. I don’t really remember the specific details, but there was definitely a lot of Pandora Christmas station playing. My husband REALLY loved me then.

ANYWAYS, do you feel like chicken tonight {like chicken tonight!}? Please tell me you remember that commercial too!!

I have got the be-all-end-all best chicken recipe on the planet today. And it’s all thanks to this Asian BBQ sauce I came up with a while back to go onto this recipe.  I remembered that sauce one evening whilst I was looking at my condiments in my fridge. {Don’t you do that every Tuesday night too?} So, I made it immediately Wednesday morning and used it on some chicken skewers! Super simple to do, very easy to throw together and marinate all day AND, they take no time at all to cook and are done in 10 minutes or less. Amazing and super tasty meal for you!

Here’s how you make them:IMG_0150Start out by slicing a few chicken breasts into slices. You could do cubes as well…I just thought the long skinny slices would be better for some reason. Whatevs. It’s all chicken.IMG_0158Pour on half of the prepared Asian BBQ sauce {which really is the star of the show} and let it marinate for an hour or so.IMG_0185After that chicken is done getting all delicious, send some skewers through and pop it onto the grill. Add a little more marinade and cook 3-5 minutes a side, depending on how hot your grill is.

  2. Totally relate with you on grill and seasonal eats. Time is flying by!!! Cherry season is in but I still can’t fathom the idea of buying it just yet. It’s so expensive here in Orlando 😀

    Can’t say the same about this succulent skewers. Reminds me of chicken satay 🙂

  6. This recipe looks fantastic, but I don’t think i can find those Maman golden plum preserves! Is there something else I can substitute?

    • If your store carries the Bonne Maman brand, they are able to order the golden plum kind. Just ask and odds are they’ll want to keep your business so they’ll order it for you. You can also buy it directly from their website too. Click here for that. Regular plum preserves should work just as well, though I’ve never tried it.
