These Sriracha Teriyaki Chicken Skewers are the perfect combination of sweet and spicy and surprisingly light and healthy without any refined sugar.
Sriracha Teriyaki Skewers pack in so much flavor for a light and healthy dish. These chicken skewers marinated in soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger, lime, and plenty of Sriracha are just the thing to celebrate the start of grilling season. The chicken is tender, juicy, and full of sweet, salty, and spicy flavors from the combination of soy sauce, honey, and Sriracha. And as someone who is Sriracha obsessed, this is a meal I could eat every night. In fact, I had the leftovers for lunch three days in a row because I liked them so much.
Now if you are a bit of a wimp when it comes to spice, you can definitely adjust the heat to match your taste buds. Just taste the marinade and slowly add in the Sriracha to your desired heat level. And you can always add more to the finished product if it turns out less spicy than you like. Also, I highly recommend taking the extra step to boil the extra marinade into a sauce. We were licking it off the plate at the end of the meal.

- 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce (GF if needed)
- 3.5 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 U lime (juice and zest)
- 4 U garlic cloves, chopped
- 1.5 tbsp Sriracha
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tbsp ginger, chopped
- 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
- In a blender, combine everything except the chicken. If mixture is too thick, add 1-2 tablespoons of water. Blend until smooth.
- Meanwhile, cut the chicken into 1-2 inch pieces. Add the chicken to the marinade in a Ziploc bag and let marinate for at least one hour.
- Remove the chicken from the marinade, letting excess drip off. Thread the chicken onto the skewers, adding veggies or pineapple if desired.
- Grill for 8-10 minutes, turning halfway through until chicken is cooked through.
- If desired (highly recommended), add the marinade to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Cook and let reduce slightly and use to drizzle over the chicken or as a dipping sauce.
