Succulent Asian Chicken Skewers

asian marinated chicken skewers

Asian flavours, combined with chicken and made into delicious bite-size skewers are super tasty! The perfect balance between sweet, sour and spicy are particular to this Asian cuisine.

Chicken is most probably one of the easiest proteins to prepare so this recipe is stress-free. These chicken skewers are perfect to serve during a cocktail party as finger food or you can make larger skewers and make a weekday dinner out of them! We had fun using our tabletop Japanese barbecue but this is only recommended for small parties.
