  • Author: Chew Out Loud

  • Yield: about 10-12 skewers 1x


These Honey Lime Chicken Skewers are sizzling with flavor! They’re easy to make and an instant summer hit.


  • 2 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs (thighs recommended for tenderness)
  • 1/3 cup + 2 TB pure honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup regular soy sauce
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 23 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
  • 1/4 tsp table salt
  • Other: Oil for cooking, freshly chopped cilantro for garnish


  1. Thoroughly dry chicken with paper towel and pierce with fork throughout. Cut into 1-inch pieces; set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Serve immediately with freshly chopped cilantro for garnish, if desired.


Chicken is delicious with Cilantro Lime Rice or Coconut Rice.
