  • For these easy soy ginger skewers, you will need:
  • 1.5 - 2 pounds chicken breasts (or boneless, skinless thighs)
  • ½ cup soy sauce (Kikkoman recommended)
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. grated fresh ginger
  • Skewers
  1. Using chicken breast, I recommend tenderizing it first. Place your chicken breasts on a sheet of parchment, then tenderize with the edge of a medium-sized plate in a criss-cross pattern. Tip: Have you ever noticed that chicken can get too dried up and stringy when baked or broiled in the oven? Boneless, skinless thighs won't do this, so this can be a very good bet for skewers.
  2. Cut your chicken into strips and marinate.
  3. Marinade: Mix the soy sauce, grated fresh ginger, and sugar. Place chicken strips into the marinade for one hour. Tip: The freshly grated ginger will come out pulply. This is okay, just add it right to the marinade mixture.
  4. Final steps: Place marinated chicken strips on the skewers, weaving them in and out on the stick. You can even fit more than one strip on the skewer.
  5. Broil for three minutes, then flip the skewers and broil for three more minutes.
