Balsamic and Honey Chicken Skewers

IMG_9686 (800x533)

Truth be told I ended up making this recipe twice. The first time I used my indoor grill pan to cook the chicken for my mother in law and II , then after raving to my husband how good it was I made it again and used an outdoor grill. Either way I have to say is super delish!! I could eat this 100 different ways and not get tired of the flavor on the chicken.

1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, about 2 breasts

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 clove garlic, minced

3 tablespoons honey, divided

1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, minced, plus more for garnish

kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


Gather 3-5 wooden skewers and place in a shallow plate with water for 30 minutes.


Trim the chicken breasts of any extra fat. Cut into 1 inch chunks and set aside.


In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk the balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, 1 tablespoon honey and 1 teaspoon rosemary plus a generous pinch of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Preheat the grill to high. Thread the chunks of chicken onto the wooden skewers.


Spray the grill with non-stick cooking spray or olive oil. Reduce the heat to medium-high. Cook the chicken for 3-5 minutes on each side, basting the chicken with the remaining honey. Continue turning until chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes or until chicken is opaque.

Let sit for 2-3 minutes and serve. Drizzle with more honey and fresh rosemary if you'd like.

  1. I tend to always go with the same boring chicken recipe, but this is such an easy one to give me some variety.
