Honey Ginger Sesame Chicken Skewers

Serves 12

Ingredients

2-1/2 tablespoons honey

Ginger powder

Garlic powder

3/4 pound very thinly sliced chicken breast

Sesame seeds (optional)– sometimes we cover the chicken with the seeds, but sometimes we’re in the mood for the chicken without the seeds– and it tastes just as delicious!

Directions

    1. Add honey to a large skillet over medium heat.  As honey thins, add garlic and ginger.  Then add chicken.
    2. Cook chicken until thoroughly cooked and chicken looks seared and starts to turn a nice golden brown as the honey absorbs into the chicken.  The more thinly sliced the chicken, the better in terms of cooking quickly.
    3. (You may need to cut some of the pieces as they’re cooking in the pan with your spatula so that you have some pieces that can easily be thread onto a skewer.  We actually didn’t need to do that, but imagine that your pieces may be different sized and it’s something to consider!)
    4. Add more ginger and garlic powder to liking.  Once chicken is completely cooked through and no longer pink, remove from pan.
    5. Once chicken has cooled, thread the pieces of chicken through a skewer and serve, enjoy!
