Ingredients

¼ cup Low Sodium Soy Sauce

1 tbsp. Rice Vinegar

2 tbsp. packed Light Brown Sugar

2 Garlic Cloves, grated or minced

1 tsp. Coarse Salt, or to taste

½ tsp. Ginger Powder (or grated fresh ginger if your have it on hand)

¼ tsp. Crushed Red Pepper, or to taste

1½ lb. Chicken Breast (2 large breasts), cut into small cubes, roughly 1–1½ inch pieces

 

You will also need:

4-6 Bamboo Skewers

 

Instructions

Add all of the ingredients (except the chicken) to a bowl, stir to combine well and to dissolve the sugar. Place the chicken breast pieces in a large, re-sealable plastic bag. Add the marinade to the chicken, remove most of the air from the bag and seal tight. Make sure the bag is properly sealed and place the bag in a pan or on a plate, just in case it leaks (yes it has happened to me).

 

Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least one hour. Turn the bag occasionally to distribute to marinade well. About half an hour to an hour prior to grilling, soak the bamboo skewers in enough water so that they’re completely submerged. Skewer the chicken pieces and discard the leftover marinade.

 

Grill the chicken skewers over moderate to moderate-low heat, turning occasionally until browned on all sides and cooked through; ensure the internal temperature of the chicken is at least 165°F at the thickest part. This should take about 15-20 minutes, but grilling time will vary. Make sure to remove the chicken from the grill when it’s up to temperature, and a nice golden color on the outside.

 

Serve the Asian chicken skewers with white rice and steamed vegetables, if desired.
