Asian Grilled Chicken

Asian Grilled Chicken
Well now. 
Don’t those just look delicious!
Ok….the skewers do seem to be a bit burnt.
Next time I will remember to soak the skewers in water 
before I put the chicken on. 
You remember too, then we will all be happy campers.
This recipe for Asian Grilled Chicken is going to perk your summer time grilling right up. Serve them with a batch of super easy
Sesame Noodles and you will be sitting pretty
But of course, you were already so very pretty to begin with.
Now, you’ll just be sitting prettier than you were before.
How does that sound?
Sounds prettier-good to me.

    I just bought chicken, hoisin sauce, and sesame seeds at the store (not knowing exactly what I was going to do with it). How perfect… now I have my recipe for dinner! Thanks.

    These look wonderful, could you pass me one please 🙂 Just a suggestion to better looking skewers. Soak them in water for and hour or so before using. And then, if you are cooking something that takes longer than a few mins, wrap the tips in aluminum foil so they don't burn.

    With my 10 year old daughter just discovering that she loves anything Asian these will have to go in our “must try” file! Tonight was Asian Chicken with Watermelon Salsa (will blog that one tomorrow…) and she said “Mom.. can we make this every night?” I have a feeling your skewers would elicit the same response! Thanks so much.

    this looks great–but I am very lazy–do I have to skewer? 🙂

    I haven't tried this recipe with out skewering (is that a word?) I bet it would work fine, maybe just not quite as flavorful, but still good. Let me know if you try it and how it works out!

    We tried this today with the Sesame noodles…both a great success! I didn't have skewers, so I just grilled the chicken on my George Foreman-like grill and it was great. Even my picky eater liked both recipes. We are definitely making this again!!!

    Well, I was a “late Charlie” on this fantastic recipe. To my defense, I just joined you six months ago. I also prepared tonight your Sesame Noodles. WOW! It’s just my hubby and me now (50 years), and I only used half a box of Angle Hair, and we ate every morsel!!! My picky eater husband had seconds of the chicken and noodles. A new fave for us!!!

    Jamie, your Asian Grilled Chicken looks amazing. Is the garlic fresh minced garlic or garlic powder? Thank you!

    Can rice vinegar be replaced with White vinegar?
