Chicken skewers “grilled” indoors — what a treat. The broiler element provides a great alternative to grilling outdoors.

BEFORE YOU START: Make sure to reserve half the prepared marinade for later use, as it will also become the glaze to be brushed on the skewers when they are finished.


Yield: Makes 10 Skewers

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced lengthwise into 5 thin strips each

½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

3 cloves garlic, minced

2⁄3 cup honey

2⁄3 cup soy sauce

¼ cup canola oil

½ teaspoon lemon juice

½ teaspoon grated ginger

2 scallions, thinly sliced
