Sambal Chicken Skewers

Chicken 002

Wow! These were spicy.  Neither my husband or son could eat them (fortunately I had leftover Beef and Cheese Macaroni in the refrigerator, haha!) but I liked them!

I also thought the technique for cooking them with the marinade was very good and will use it again.

These are a few of my notes:

I did not add all the chicken to the marinade.  I added about a 1/4  cup of the marinade to the chicken and then took the rest of the marinade and cooked it according to their directions.

I cut the boneless, skinless chicken thighs into quarters, as evenly as possible.  I put 4 quarters on each bamboo stick.  The brand of chicken is important too.   I believe Perdue has the best product, which is what I used.  They are not overly fatty.

I set the grill temperature to 3 notches below high.

I cooked the chicken for a total of 12 minutes on the grill, turning every 2 minutes and basting.

If these seem too spicy, there are comments from readers on the recipe that might be useful in reducing the heat.

    I also really enjoyed these! Not only were they tasty but they didn’t require hours of marinating. A quick and easy recipe.

    To cut the spice I added juice from one lime to the marinade and some extra brown sugar. I also have made this with roasted chili paste vs the hot and I think I liked it even better.

    Thanks, Sarah! This sounds great, will have to try with your changes, maybe Dad and Sam will eat it, then 🙂
