Honey Soy Chicken Skewers

Since the snow has melted we have been itching to grill.  So I decided to dust off the Weber Grill and make some chicken.  I wanted to use only the ingredients that I had in the house, so I raided the pantry.  I had soy sauce and honey.  Boom, honey soy chicken. Sounds like a winning combination to me.  Since I wanted to maximize surface area of the chicken that absorbed the marinade, I decided to cube the chicken and skewer it.  This was a great combination which is going to be added to our regular dinner rotation.  You have to try this.

Honey Soy Chicken Skewers

Slice the onion and bell peppers into 1 inch squares.  Add the veggies to a 1 gallon zip top bag.

Veggies

Cube the chicken into 1 inch cubes and add to the zip top bag.

Cubed Chicken

In a bowl combine the oil, soy sauce, honey, pepper, garlic and cayenne pepper.  Mix well.

The Marinade

Pour the marinade into the zip top bag.  Then marinade the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to 24 hours.

Marinade

Preheat the grill to high heat.

Skewer the chicken

Remove the marinated chicken and vegetables from the fridge and skewer onto metal skewers or bamboo skewers.  Alternate the meat and vegetables on the skewers.  If you use bamboo skewers make sure to soak them for at least 30 minutes before skewering.

Place the skewers on the grill

Place the skewers onto the grill over direct heat.

Grill until the chicken is fully cooked

Rotate the skewers every 3-4 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked and reads 165 degrees on a thermometer.
