I love anything Asian and most things chicken. When you put the two together, it’s just a taste of delicious bliss! I am always looking for quick meals and since this one is cooked in the broiler, the cook time just whizzes by in a jiffy. I can also quickly marinade the chicken in the morning or the day before, and then pop it into the oven later to be ready in no time.
Next time we host a small party, I am gonna be breaking out these chicken skewers! You can also place them on the BBQ to mix things up a lil.
Now I paired this with a delicious side of my Simple Shaved Brussels Sprouts Side Salad (recipe to come soon!!!!) and some wild rice. I loved mixing everything on my plate together, so I ended up mixing the rice and shaved brussel sprouts together and put some of the Peanut Ginger Dipping Sauce on them and it was seriously GOOD!
*12 ounces boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1-inch slices or pieces
*bamboo skewers (to prevent from burning, soak wooden bamboo skewers in water for 30 min before threading the chicken)
Soy-Ginger Chicken Marinade
2 Tbsp reduced-sodium Tamari Soy Sauce (I use organic and gluten free)
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp finely minced ginger
1 tsp honey
Peanut Ginger Dipping Sauce
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter (I use Justin’s all natural peanut butter and it’s PERFECT!)
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp reduced sodium Tamari Soy Sauce (I used organic and gluten free)
1/2 tsp finely minced ginger
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, or to taste
1 Tbsp water, or as needed according to the consistency that you desire!

Turn on the broiler to get it ready
1. Stir together the Soy-Ginger Chicken Marinade in a medium bowl. Add the chicken and marinade together in a large ziplock bag, making sure to mix and coat the chicken evenly. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. (Sometimes I even do this the morning of or day before!)
2. Get ready to mix the Peanut-Ginger Sauce in a small bowl. Stir together all of the ingredients. The sauce should have a cake-batter consistency so add water as needed. Cover and allow to sit for at least 15/20 min.
3. Lightly oil a baking sheet. After the chicken has marinated, thread the pieces onto the bamboo skewers. Then, place the chicken bamboo skewers on the baking sheet and place in the oven!
4. Broil the chicken for about 6 minutes, turning once, or until it is lightly charred and cooked through. (I like to test the center to make sure it is no longer pink but making sure not to overcook it)
