Ginger Chicken Kebabs

4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stalk lemon grass, chopped
  • One 2-inch piece ginger, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 6 chicken thighs, boneless and skinless, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 scallions, cut into 1 1/2-inch lengths
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted


In bowl of food processor, place canola oil, rice vinegar, sugar, salt, lemon grass, ginger and garlic cloves. Process until lemon grass is chopped fully, about 3 minutes. Transfer to glass bowl. Add chicken thighs to bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours, or overnight, or up to 2 days.

Prepare charcoal or gas grill, or preheat oven broiler. Thread chicken pieces and scallions, alternating. Place on grill and cook, turning once, until chicken is firm and opaque, about 6 - 8 minutes per side. Plate on serving platter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
