Honey Lime Chicken Skewers

Hi everyone! Holly here again from Life In The Lofthouse bringing you delicious and easy Honey Lime Chicken Skewers. These are so good and packed with a sweet and zesty flavor! With the temps getting higher and summer almost here, we love using our outdoor grill for dinners. I try to avoid using my oven at all costs. It's amazing how fast it can heat up your house. 
These chicken skewers are a favorite of ours; we make them every summer. The chicken is marinated in honey, lime, and a few other simple ingredients. It's what makes this chicken so delicious! Serve these with a side of rice and veggie, and it makes for one great summer meal!
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
juice of 1 lime
2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce (hot chili sauce)
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons cilantro, chopped
3 - 4 skewers (metal or wooden)

In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, honey, oil, lime juice, Sriracha sauce, garlic and cilantro. Stir to combine. Add the diced chicken pieces to marinade. Gently stir to coat in marinade. Cover bowl tightly. Place in fridge and let marinade at least 1 hour, up to 3 hours.

Thread 8 to 9 pieces of chicken onto each skewer. (if using wooden skewers make sure to soak in water at least 15 minutes)

Grill over medium heat, 7 to 8 minutes on each side, or until fully cooked in center. 
Serve and enjoy! (Serves 3-4)

  1. These sound amazing, but do you know by any chance if the Sriracha makes them spicy? I am wondering if my kids could eat them?

  2. Raeanne, I would just leave it out. It still has wonderful flavor without the "kick". :)
