The weather is getting nicer out which means time to pull out the grill. Grilling is something I decided I am going to master this year. I am always cooking my meats in the oven but now I will begin to tackle the grill. These Grilled Chicken Skewers were very simple and perfect for the beginner grillers out there. 🙂 I marinated the chicken in several ingredients that married together very nicely. In each bite you can taste each flavor.
I marinated my chicken over night. You can marinade for 2 hours and then use but the longer the better.
I served my Grilled Chicken Skewers with my Sweet Potato Cubes recipe (I cut them with my wavy cutter this time)
4 to 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks similar in size for even cooking
1/4 Cup EVOO
2 T low sodium soy sauce (regular is fine)
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 T balsamic vinegar
2 T honey
2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl that will hold your chicken. Before I put the chicken in the marinade, I like to pierce them with a fork to help absorb the marinade. Toss chicken in marinade and Saran wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or the longer the better.
When it is time to grill, skewer chicken leaving some space between each chunk. Grill until cooked through.
