Asian Chicken Kabobs

I was experimenting in the kitchen a few days ago with some exciting, fresh ingredients to use as a marinade for my chicken kabobs.  The end result was absolutely delicious.  I hope you enjoy this simple recipe with Asian flair as much as we did.

2 boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into cubes about 1.5-2 inches in size (I use organic free-range)
1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup rice vinegar
1 heaping tablespoon honey
1-tablespoon grated ginger
4 cloves garlic crushed
4-5 green onions chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
Dash of salt and pepper
Optional: just a touch of spicy sesame oil

Cut up your chicken into cubes as seen below, place into a bowl and add green onions:

Next, add your soy sauce and rice vinegar:

And your garlic and ginger...:

And finally your honey, olive oil, dash of salt and pepper (and touch of sesame oil if you like):

Give these ingredients a good mix and let the chicken marinate for at least an hour prior to cooking.  Mine marinated for 2.5 hours and it was very tasty!

When you are ready, set the oven to broil and place the chicken along with all of the marinade into a Pyrex dish:

Broil for 10-12 minutes on one side, then flip and broil for 10-12 minutes on the other:

It's really that easy.  I served mine on a bed of whole wheat couscous with a side of brussel sprouts which I also cooked in the broiler (all I did was toss them in some olive oil and a touch of soy sauce- I let them cook for about 12 minutes total).  Also, when serving, I added some of the cooked marinade juice to the top of the chicken which soaked into the couscous giving it a delicious soy/honey flavor.

Mmmmmmmm! :)

 Enjoy and best wishes for a very healthy and happy holiday season and New Year!
