Honey, soy sauce and garlic kebabs

Chicken kebabs

These soy sauce  chicken skewers are so good!


This recipe for soy sauce kebabs is like a party in your mouth. There is so much going on here. You have the sweetness of the honey, the zap of the chilli and savoury soy sauce that is all brought together with the warming spices the garlic and ginger.

Bring the marinade to a boil for a few minutes and serve it over the chicken with a little white rice. It is the perfect Summer dinner.

Soy sauce is becoming increasingly popular in Indian cooking. The use of garam masala and garlic and ginger paste makes this a fusion dish that simply needs to be tried.

If you have metal skewers for your barbecue, use them for these amazing soy sauce kebabs. They will help make this recipe even better. You could of course cook the chicken pieces and vegetables on a normal grill too.

Although you only need to marinate the meat for about an hour, additional marinating time will make the dish even better. I marinated mine for 48 hours.


Make the recipe for soy sauce kebabs your own.

It probably goes without saying but add as much garlic and ginger paste as you like. Some people like less garlic so the overriding taste is mainly the soy sauce but if garlic is your thing then go for an extra spoonful of it.
