I sort have to sneak anything that might be remotely close to Chinese food onto the table. However, my daughter loves chicken on a stick. So, when I made these spicy Asian chicken kabobs, I left off the simple fact that it might be a smidge close to Chinese. I figured I could tell them once they loved them!
Spicy Asian Chicken Kabobs
I made two versions of the spicy Asian chicken kabobs. One with a marinade from scratch with a few simple ingredients.
And one with a bottle of Panda Express Orange Sauce. If you don’t have orange sauces, you could definitely make teriyaki chicken kabobs by marinading in your favorite bottle of teriyaki sauce.
I cut 2 pounds of chicken breast up in two-inch pieces, split them in half and put into two Ziploc bags. Then I mixed together 2 parts balsamic vinegar to 1 part honey and 1 part sriracha hot chili sauce together.
I poured about 1/2 cup of the orange sauce over the other bag of chicken. Refrigerate for a few hours. About 30 minutes before grill time I grabbed some veggies out of the fridge and chunked them up. I used a red bell pepper, onion, zucchini, and mushrooms. Use what you have on hand.
Once the veggies were cut into chunks, I pulled the chicken out and put the veggies and chicken on stainless steel shish kabob skewers to make these spicy Chinese Chicken Kabobs. I start with a pepper closest to the handle followed by a piece of chicken and two pieces of veggies and then chicken again. I like every piece of vegetable to be touching the chicken.
