Top-ranked recipe named "Skewered Honey-Balsamic Chicken"
This is a great honey balsamic chicken recipe. You can make these as an appetizer or serve it as a main dish with some rice. I used small 5 inch or so bamboo skewers. Feel free to use soy sauce if you have it, instead of the Worcestershire...just decrease the salt amount. After the chicken was cooked through, I basted the chicken with extra honey to caramelize it even more. This is totally optional...you can skip this step if you like. I just like the extra sweetness.
"I cooked for the 1st time today, and I used this recipie!! I used soy sause since I'm not a fan of Worcester and just a tsp of salt since I didn't have kosher salt. It was real fun learning to cook with this recipie. Next time I'll let the chicken marinate longer and use just one clove of garlic bcuz I learned when cutting it that I do NOT like the taste/smell of garlic. I didn't do that great of a job cooking the chicken, so I got my mom to help me put it in the oven, adding a lot more honey on chicken skewers. My parents and fiancé said I did a good job on it. I took pictures. :)"- JenR
Cut chicken thighs into 1/2 inch pieces.
In a separate bowl, mix the marinade and pour over the chicken. Add salt to taste. Mix completely so that all the chicken pieces are covered. Let marinade for 1-2 hours.
Drain and skewer a few chicken pieces on each bamboo skewer. Heat a non stick pan on med high until hot. Lower the heat to med/low and add a few skewers to the pan. Cook on one side for 3-5 minutes or until caramel brown. Turn over and cook second side until caramel brown. You will notice that as the chicken cooks, it first releases some liquid and then the liquid starts to caramelize. It will then coat the chicken. Make sure your heat is not too high when cooking the chicken.
Baste with extra honey if you like and cook for an additional minute or so. Sprinkle sesame seeds and serve.You can keep them warm in a 200 deg oven.

sevenall 6 months agoWe made this and loved it, and with all other recipes with Honey that we've made, we've found that using the thick, creamed Honey, makes it stick to the chicken the best. The cheap liquid Honey usually causes all the 'sauce just runs off the chicken' complaints. We also cooked the marinade in a stove pot for about 8 minutes to reduce the mixture slightly before adding to chicken. Only other adjustments we made were that we never marinated at all, and added approx 1-2 tbsp of brown sugar to the marinade and basted the chicken regularly every 8-10 minutes as we baked it in the oven for a total of 40 minutes at 400C

kassidyhardee 6 months agoI made this last night and it was really good. I changed it up a bit, but kept most of the original recipe. When it called for oil in the marinade, I used sesame oil just to keep it 'asian'. I also cooked the chicken in a wok instead of on skewers. Once the chicken was pretty much cooked, I added green beans to make it more of a stir fry dish. Put it over rice and the kids loved it! I think the marinade was really good. I may try it with soy sauce instead of worcestershire next time! Thanks for sharing!
courtneye 7 months agoVery tender and flavorful, but the sauce ran right off instead of glazing the chicken. Next time I will cook the sauce down until it's thick, then re-coat the chicken and bake it.
