Cuisine: Fusion
Keyword: Chicken Skewers
Servings: 7 skewers
Calories: 142 kcal
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ginger powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground white pepper or ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • More oil for brushing grill pan
  1. If using bamboo skewers, soak 7-10 skewers in water. Make sure they are completely immersed.

  2. Slice the chicken into 1-2 inch pieces. Place in a bowl and add all the other ingredients. Mix well to ensure that the seasoning gets all over the chicken.

  3. Place 3 pieces of chicken on each skewer.

  4. Heat a grill pan on the stove on high heat for about 3 minutes. Brush all around the pan with oil.

  5. Place the skewers on the pan in a single layer. Don't let the end of the skewers touch the pan because that will yield so much smoke. Let the skewers cook on one side for about 5 minutes then flip to the other side and let them cook for another 5 minutes. Repeat the process with the rest of the skewers.

  6. Serve the Chicken Skewers with your favorite dipping sauce, some sliced onions and veggies if desired. I served them with African hot sauce! They can also be enjoyed as they are.

Recipe Notes

1. Chicken thighs are best because they yield the best flavor! You could substitute with chicken breats though. In that case, I recommend drizzling on even more oil on the chicken so it doesn't easily dry out when grilling.

2. Number of calories is per skewer.
