Chicken on a stick! TheseGinger Chicken Skewers are loaded with summer flavors. They are doused in creamy yogurt that is seasoned with aromatic ginger, herbs, then seared to perfection. No out-door grill needed!
I paired these juicy chicken skewers with a creamy Ginger Aioli Sauce. It seriously puts these skewers to a whole other level. Yum! I can’t wait to share this recipe with you. I would recommend my hearty brussel sprout salad or simple arugula salad with this recipe.
What ingredients are in these ginger chicken skewers?
Cumin, coriander, ginger.
Fresh parley and lemon zest and the juice.
Salt and pepper.
The ginger aioli sauce is optional, but I highly recommend it.
Tips for making the best ginger chicken skewers without a grill.
1.) put the chicken on a smaller, study stick. This will be ideal for parties and makes sharing easier and more personal.
2.) Marinate the chicken no longer than an hour. This will force those ingredients to work hard. I would not recommend marinating for longer than 24 hours.
3.) Most important tip—Use a cast-iron pan to help create that deep brown ridged crust that would be more difficult to achieve with a regular non-skillet pan. Furthermore, when using a cast-iron pan, you will need to use a generous amount of oil to prevent sticking.
4.) Garnish with a sprinkle with fresh herbs. This will help in appearance and as well as adding that fresh final touch.
In a large mixing bowl, add the chicken breast pieces, cumin, coriander, lemon zest, lemon juice, sesame oil, yogurt, parsley, and salt and pepper. Mix until the chicken is well incorporated with the ingredients. A yogurt marinade will be the final look.
Put the seasoned chicken pieces onto wooden skewers.
Place a skillet or cast-iron pan over a medium-high flame, once the pan is hot, drizzle on olive oil and gently lay each skewer onto the pan. Be careful not to over-crowed the pan, otherwise, you won’t get super crispy edges on the chicken.
Cook on each side for 4-5 minutes until golden brown and crispy . The internal temperature should reach 165 °F.
Make the Aioli Sauce
In a mixing bowl, add the mayo, lemon juice, garlic, sesame oil, chopped parsley, salt, and pepper and simply mix until a creamy sauce forms. If the sauce is too thick, simply add a splash of water to create your desired consistency.
