Honey-Lime & Sesame Chicken Skewers

I found a version of this recipe on a lovely blog, Kitchen Meets Girl, and thought it looked incredibly delicious!  I did change a couple of things, but her recipe was my inspiration.  I had planned to cook these on my outdoor grill.  But, with temps around 100º today, I used my indoor cast iron grill pan and decided to stay cool in the A.C.

Combine large chunks of boneless, skinless chicken breasts (my package was 1 1/2 pounds) with the following in a bowl or gallon-size Ziploc bag:

3 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon oil

Zest and juice of 1 lime

Pinch of red pepper flakes

2 – 3 garlic cloves, minced

Few dashes of Siracha

Allow to marinate in fridge for, at least, one hour.  (I did three hours.)  If using bamboo skewers, soak sticks for 5 – 10 minutes in water to avoid burning.  Skewer chicken along with some lime wedges.

Grill on medium high heat for 6 – 8 minutes per side or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.

Top with toasted sesame seeds and cilantro leaves.  Serve with rice.  Squeeze lime wedges over chicken tableside.
