Sesame, Honey & Lime Chicken Skewers

August 16, 2017

These grilled chicken breast skewers are marinaded in lots of punchy Asian flavours and served with a spicy peanut sauce, guaranteed to satisfy! It's really important that chicken breast doesn't become dry while cooking, so the marinade acts as a 'moist maker' and the skewers are grilled quickly on a high heat to ensure maximum juiciness! I've reused my recipe for spicy peanut sauce from the soba noodle salad, it works so well with the chicken while creating a completely different dish.

Serves 2-3

 

 

Ingredients for the chicken

600g chicken breast, diced

3 tbsp lime juice

3 tbsp toasted sesame oil

1 tbsp honey

1 clove of garlic, minced

Fresh coriander, to serve

Red chilli, to serve

 

Ingredients for the spicy peanut sauce

4 tbsp crunchy peanut butter

1 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp toasted sesame oil

1 tbsp rice vinegar

1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp water

Juice of half a lime

2 tbsp Sriracha sauce, or to taste 

1 clove of garlic 

 

Instructions

To prepare the chicken, whisk together the lime, sesame oil and honey. Add the diced chicken to the marinade and give the mixture a good stir to coat thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 day. 

 

While the chicken is marinating, whisk together all of the ingredients for the peanut sauce. Add more water if the mixture is too thick. 

 

Turn the grill onto a high heat and thread the chicken pieces onto skewers. Place the skewers under the grill and cook for a few minutes on each side, until the meat is browning and cooked through.

 

Serve immediately with a sprinkling of coriander, fresh chilli and, of course, the spicy peanut sauce.
