  • Cut chicken into long, thin strips (do this while the breasts are partially frozen, you should get about 8 strips from each breast) Thread the green onion& chicken alternately on the skewers, 2 chicken pieces and 2 green onions to each (if you want to serve these as appetizers use smaller skewers and put only 1 piece of chicken and 1 onion on each).
  • Lay the skewers in a 9×13 baking dish.
  • Combine remaining ingredients and pour half over the skewers, turning the skewers so all sides are coated with the marinade (reserve the remaining marinade).
  • Cover and place in fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight, turn skewers every once in a while.
  • Broil or BBQ the skewers, brushing with reserved marinade for 2-4 minutes per side.

  • “Wonderful asian flavours and so easy to prepare. I love that this is made ahead. I used more chicken without increasing the marinade, and just threw the chicken and marinade in a bag in the fridge and skewered it at the end. The garlic and ginger flavours are wonderful – I’ll probably add even more next time. Great recipe, Bergy!”
