These festive grilled-chicken skewers are perfect for a birthday party. They're even better when paired with our Mango Dipping Sauce.

  • Yield: Makes 18

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons rice-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 1 pound total), cut into 3-by-1/2-inch strips
  • Mango Dipping Sauce


  1. Whisk together soy sauce, ginger, sesame seeds, honey, vinegar, and oil in a large bowl. Add chicken to marinade; refrigerate, covered, 30 minutes. Soak 18 wooden skewers in water for at least 20 minutes.

  2. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high (if using a charcoal grill, coals are ready when you can hold your hand 5 inches above grill for just 3 to 4 seconds). Thread chicken onto skewers, dividing evenly. Grill, turning once, until chicken is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve warm or at room temperature with mango dipping sauce.
