Prep Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 26 mins

Ingredients:

12 (8 inch) bamboo skewers
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of fat
16 scallions

Marinade
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce (regular will make this too salty)
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tablespoons finely grated ginger (measure after grating)
1 tablespoon ground toasted sesame seeds (measure after grounding)
1 tablespoon honey (any variety works)
1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 pinch red pepper flakes
fresh ground black pepper

Directions:

1 Place 12 bamboo skewers in warm water for 30 minutes.

2 Mix together all the the ingredients for the marinade in a small bowl.

3 Cut the chicken breasts into long strips, about 8 per breast half.

4 Trim the scallions into 1 1/2 long pieces.

5 Thread the chicken and scallions on the bamboo skewers with the scallion being pierced so that it runs long vertical across the length of the skewer.

6 Place kebobs in a 9 by 13 inch baking dish and pour two-thirds of the marinade over the chicken. Cover with foil and place in the icebox for 6 to 24 hours, turning occasionally. (The frequency depends on how long you plan to marinade the meat.).

7 To cook, place the kebobs on an indoor or outdoor grill and cook for 2 to 4 minutes per side. Brush the kebobs with reserved marinade while cooking.

8 This serves 6 as a main course but works well as an appetizer.
