Certainly! Here’s a simple recipe for BBQ Chicken Skewers:

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lbs (about 700g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized chunks
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce (store-bought or homemade)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Wooden or metal skewers (if using wooden, soak them in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning)

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Marinade:
  • In a bowl, whisk together the barbecue sauce, olive oil, soy sauce, honey, minced garlic, smoked paprika, ground cumin, salt, and black pepper.
  1. Marinate the Chicken:
  • Place the chicken chunks in a resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour half of the marinade over the chicken, ensuring each piece is well coated. Reserve the other half for basting.
  1. Marinate Time:
  • Allow the chicken to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to 2 hours. The longer, the better for flavor.
  1. Preheat the Grill:
  • Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  1. Skewer the Chicken:
  • Thread the marinated chicken chunks onto the skewers, leaving a little space between each piece.
  1. Grill the Skewers:
  • Place the skewers on the preheated grill. Cook for about 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, or until the chicken is fully cooked and has a nice char.
  1. Baste with Marinade:
  • During the last few minutes of grilling, baste the chicken with the reserved marinade for extra flavor.
  1. Check for Doneness:
  • Make sure the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  1. Serve:
  • Remove the skewers from the grill and let them rest for a couple of minutes. Serve the BBQ chicken skewers with your favorite sides.
  1. Enjoy:
    • Enjoy these delicious BBQ chicken skewers hot off the grill!
