Sticky Garlic Chicken Skewers

I'm always trying to find new things to do with chicken. I pretty much always have a bag on hand in the freezer, and a lot of times that is all I have to work with when coming up with dinner!

I made the marinade for these and threw the chicken in one night, but ended up not making them that night so I let them marinate for a whole day. That hardly EVER happens because I:
a. Am impatient
b. Rarely plan meals in advance.

I mean I buy the INGREDIENTS for meals in advance but I never know what night I will make them. Depends on my mood what I will make for dinner.

So anyways, these turned out fantastic. They were sticky, as the title says while being savory and sweet at the same time. At the end you even get a little kick of spice. I think next time I might add some crushed red pepper flakes to up the heat a bit. 


3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp honey
4 tbsp ketchup
4 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp dijon mustard
2 tsp hot sauce (I used buffalo wing sauce since I had it/it is thicker)
salt and pepper


1. Mix all of the ingredients in a large glass bowl or plastic storage bag. Mix in chicken and coat in the marinade.
2. Let the chicken marinate for at least 30 minutes up to over night.
3. Meanwhile, soak 4 bamboo skewers in water for 20 mins so they do not burn.
4. Prepare grill or broiler to Med-High/High (whatever you're comfortable with. I used med high)
5. While the grill is heating up, skewer your chicken. Make sure to leave space between each piece of chicken.
6. Cook on hot grill or under hot broiler for 6-8 minutes, turning occasionally. These don't even need a dipping sauce!
