This honey sesame chicken skewers recipe is inspired by Fine Cooking magazine, one of the many food magazines I subscribed too. I was browsing through the summer recipes in the issue and a similar recipe caught my eyes. I decided to tweak the recipe quite a bit to make it easier, with less ingredients, but no less delicious than the ones on the magazine.

When I was in the Midwest as a poor student, one of my indulgences was the Chinese buffet during the weekends. At many Chinese buffets I had tried, there was always a chicken skewer dish where the five-spice and soy sauce marinated chicken was threaded onto a bamboo stick and deep-fried to golden brown. The humble looking chicken skewer was one of my favorites at Chinese buffet. Deeply flavorful, juicy, and eating food on-a-stick was so much fun, and delicious!

I tried to create this honey sesame chicken skewers recipe based on my taste memory, and it was pretty close. Instead of deep-frying, I chose to grill them over fire since it’s summer now. To jazz up the presentation, drizzle white sesame seeds on top of the chicken skewers, and add some sliced green onions. Enjoy!

  1. Love using honey on chicken. Just adds such a sweet sticky glaze! I like to glaze it then grill a minute more for extra goldenness. Yours looks perfect! Food on a stick is so much fun, right?
