In This Recipe


  1. Whisk together all the ingredients except the chicken. Cut the chicken into 1 - 1 1/2 inch cubes. Place the chicken in a heavy zippered plastic bag and add half of the marinade to it. Squish the bag around a bit to make sure the chicken is coated and then refrigerate for about 2 hours.
  2. Heat your grill to medium. Thread the chicken cubes on to the 4 skewers and place on the grill, basting with the reserved marinade until the kebabs are done.
  3. If you like, serve the kebabs over sweetened Jasmine rice and garnish with sliced green onions.
