Sweet Sambal Chicken Skewers

Thursday, August 8, 2013


  • ½ cup (packed) light brown sugar
  • ½ cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • ⅓ cup hot chili paste (such as sambal oelek)
  • ¼ cup fish sauce (such as nam pla or nuo nam)
  • ¼ cup Sriracha
  • 2 teaspoons finely grate peeled ginger
  • 1 ½ lb. skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 2 pieces


  1. Prepare grill for medium-high heat. Whisk brown sugar, vinegar, chili paste, fish sauce, Sriracha, and ginger in a large bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat. Thread 4 or 5 chicken pieces onto each skewer.
  2. Transfer marinade to a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until reduced by half (about 1 cup), 7-10 minutes.
  3. Grill chicken, turning and basting often with reduced marinade, until cooked through, 8-10 minutes.
