  • 600 g chicken breast or thighs
  • 2 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp Ginger grated
  • 1 tbsp Garlic grated
  • 2 tbsp Sweet soy sauce or maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Teriyaki sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp Worchester sauce


  • Cut the chicken into cubes. I use breast but chicken thighs are amazing too.
  • Add all the sauces into a bowl, mix well and put the chicken cubes into it. allow to marinade for at least 1 hour. You may also marinade it the night before but this is not necessary as the chicken might actually get too salty.
  • Skewer chicken with prepared skewers and place on BBQ. Cook on each side for about 4 minutes.


If you do not have chicken or wish to use different meats you could easily use beef, pork or salmon. I have made this using these before and it is absolutely delicious, truly and utterly yum yum. 
Grilling, BBQ-ing or Baking...
Well... all versions are super good and doable depending on the season or weather - all versions are delivering a great outcome. 
Grilling or BBQ-ing these skewers will be pretty much the same cooking times and technique which is 4-5 minutes on each side.
When baking though, you will need to preheat the oven to 190C or 360F. Place skewers on parchment paper and bake for 30-40 minutes, depending on meat, cuts and size of your meat cuts. 
Use altenatives : 
  • red onions 
  • pineapple
  • peppers 
  • peaches
  • sprinkle sesame seeds
