- 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
- Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes
For the Marinade
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon grated ginger
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
For the Sweet and Sour Glaze
- ¼ cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, rice vinegar, minced garlic, grated ginger, and vegetable oil to make the marinade.
- Place the chicken cubes in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them. Toss the chicken to ensure it is well coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours for maximum flavor.
- In the meantime, prepare the sweet and sour glaze by combining the ketchup, rice vinegar, honey, soy sauce, and cornstarch in a small saucepan. Whisk until the cornstarch is fully dissolved.
- Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the glaze thickens and becomes glossy. Remove from heat and set aside.
- Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
- Thread the marinated chicken cubes onto the soaked wooden skewers, dividing them evenly among the skewers.
- Grill the chicken skewers for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked through and has nice grill marks.
- Brush the sweet and sour glaze onto the skewers during the last few minutes of grilling, turning them to ensure even coverage.
- Once cooked, remove the skewers from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
- Serve the BBQ Chicken Skewers with Sweet and Sour Glaze hot, garnished with chopped green onions or sesame seeds, if desired.
- Feel free to adjust the sweetness or tanginess of the glaze according to your preference by adjusting the amount of honey or vinegar.
- If using metal skewers, there's no need to soak them in water.
- Serve the skewers with steamed rice, grilled vegetables, or a fresh salad for a complete meal.
