Chicken Kebabs with Asian Spice Paste

A moist spice rub acts as a thick marinade in this recipe to produce deeply flavorful, moist chicken that can be readily served with your favorite vegetable dishes.


  • Spice Paste:

    • 1 shallot, minced
    • 2 tsp. minced garlic
    • 2 tsp. minced jalapeño chile
    • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
    • 1 tsp. coriander
    • 1 Tbsp. lemon zest
    • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
    • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
    • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
    • ½ tsp. salt
    • ½ tsp. pepper


    • 1½ lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed


  1. Soak bamboo skewers in cold water for at least 10 minutes.
  2. Mash the spice paste ingredients using mortar and pestle or blender to form a wet paste.
  3. Place chicken on skewers and rub with paste, coating evenly. Place in a covered dish in the refrigerator and marinate (2-12 hours).
  4. Place oven rack in the top position and heat broiler to high. Place chicken on a baking sheet and cook until no longer pink in the center, turning once halfway through cooking (8-10 minutes).
