These Honey Lime Chicken Skewers are sizzling with flavor! They're easy to make and an instant summer hit.
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 6 mins
Total Time: 21 mins


  • 2 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs (thighs recommended for tenderness)
  • cup + 2 TB pure honey
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup regular soy sauce
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2-3 TB Sriracha hot sauce, depending on desired amount of heat
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 3 TB freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tsp ground or freshly grated ginger
  • ¼ tsp table salt
  • Other: Oil for cooking, freshly chopped cilantro for garnish


  • Thoroughly dry chicken with paper towel and pierce with fork throughout. Cut into 1-inch pieces; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all remaining ingredients into a well-combined marinade. Reserve 1/4 cup of the marinade for later. Add chicken pieces to the bowl of marinade, turning to coat well. Marinade 2-3 hours, turning occasionally to re-coat.
  • Thread marinated chicken onto skewers, discarding any used marinade. Coat grill with oil, heating over medium-high heat until hot. Place skewers on grill and cook until nice grill marks appear and center is no longer pink, approx. 2-3 min/side, basting occasionally with your 1/4 cup of reserved marinade.
  • Serve immediately with freshly chopped cilantro for garnish, if desired.


Chicken is delicious with Cilantro Lime Rice or Coconut Rice.

    I made the honey lime chicken thighs for dinner tonite with coconut rice and it was fabulously delicious! The chicken marinade is perfect – fresh garlic, ginger and lime with honey is superb. Thank you for sharing this deliciousness. Will make it again!
