Honey Garlic Glazed Chicken Skewers

These addictive chicken skewers have that sweet, spicy, sticky quality of chicken wings but are so much easier to eat. They are great all on their own, but we think the citrus dipping sauce really puts them over the top!

For the marinade:

  • 3 Tbsp Ponzu (see note)
  • 3 Tbsp Honey
  • 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp Sesame Oil
  • 3 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 inch fresh Ginger, grated
  • 1/2 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

For the chicken:

  • 1 lb Chicken Thighs (boneless and skinless, or use chicken breasts)
  • 8 Wooden Skewers


  • Whisk together all of the ingredients for the marinade. Cut the chicken into even cubes and combine with the marinade. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours and up to a day.
  • Preheat a charcoal or gas grill. While the grill is heating, thread the chicken through the skewers. Grill the chicken slowly, turning every couple minutes and basting with the leftover marinade. If the chicken begins to char, move to indirect heat (the honey in the marinade will make it char quickly if over high heat). Continue cooking until the chicken is cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.


Ponzu is a citrus-flavored sauce used in Japanese cooking - it's fairly common and should be available in the Asian aisle of most grocery stores.
