The skewers are perfect for party food, you can make them as long or short as you wish, just choose the length of the skewers you wish to use.

Serve these warm with a variety of dipping sauces or eat them as they are. 

Make up some of our lemon garlic sauce for chicken recipe too and you can dip your chicken skewers and get a lovely additional flavor dimension.

You can also freeze these, either before coating in breadcrumbs or after baking.

For this recipe, I have baked them in the oven, however, you can also deep fry these, which is a little naughty on the calories, but also delicious!

However, because it is chicken, please make sure you heat / cook through thoroughly after defrosting, before serving!

The meat is nice and juicy tender, and full of flavor so please enjoy our delicious Breaded Chicken Skewers!

Prep Time

15 minutes

Cook Time

15 Minutes

Serves

24

Ingredients

15 - 20 Boneless and skinless chicken thighs, or 8 - 10 Chicken Breasts

The Marinade

1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil
1 Tablespoon Honey
1/2 Teaspoon ground ginger
1 Tablespoon Chinese Rice Wine or Dry Sherry

The Coating

2 Eggs, Beaten
2 Cups Breadcrumbs of your choice, Panko etc
A drizzle of olive oil
24+ Wooden Skewers

Instructions

1. Pre heat oven to 425 F or 220 C. Line a baking tray with foil and brush some oil on the foil.

2. In a bowl, add the marinade ingredients and stir.

3. Slice the thigh meat in to bite-sized pieces and add to the marinade, coating all the chicken thoroughly.

If you have time, place in the fridge for half an hour for the flavors to develop.

Then weave the pieces of chicken through some wooden skewers until all the meat is used up.

I usually place around 4 - 6 pieces of meat on each skewer, but of course, it depends on how long your skewers are and what size you cut the chicken! Use your judgment.

4. Beat the eggs and place the breadcrumbs on a plate.

Then dip each chicken skewer in the egg then roll in the plate of breadcrumbs until fully coated.

Place on the baking sheet. Drizzle some olive oil all over the skewers. Not too much, just a little.

5. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, turning when browned and continue to bake until they are crispy and golden.

It should take around 15 - 20 minutes, depending on how thick or thin you made the skewers.

6. Serve your breaded chicken skewers warm with your favorite dips. I like these with sweet chili sauce. BBQ sauce is also delicious! You choose!

  1. Do you leave some space between each piece of chicken on the skewer so each piece cooks thoroughly? I’m worried about the total cooking time being 15-20 minutes.

  2. Can you bake these ahead and then freeze them? I’m having a family reunion and want to make as many dishes ahead of time and just be able to put things in the oven to heat before serving.

    1. Hi Gail, yes! The only thing to watch out for is that they don’t dry out when you come to reheat them because the skewers are only thin so you can end up over cooking. What I would suggest is you prepare them first and freeze them raw, then simply defrost and cook them as per the recipe. At least that way you won’t have to worry about them drying out. Hope that helps and enjoy your reunion!
