How To Make Easy Balsamic Chicken Skewers

Outdoor activities call for a grill party. With a simple marinade of honey and balsamic vinegar, these chicken skewers are tender, sweet, and rich in umami.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
Marinate Time: 8 hours
Total: 8 hours 40 minutes



  • 2cupsDeLallo balsamic vinegar
  • ¼cuphoney
  • 2lbschicken breastsboneless, skinless cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Kosher salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • wooden or metal skewers


  1. Whisk together balsamic vinegar and honey until combined to form your marinade. Add the marinade and chicken pieces to a large ziplock bag or mixing bowl, and toss until combined.

  2. Seal/cover and refrigerate to marinate for at least 10 minutes, or up to 8 hours. Also, if you are using wooden skewers, set them to soak in a pan of water for at least 10 minutes so that they do not burn.

  3. Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken pieces from the marinade and thread the chicken onto skewers. Season the skewers generously with salt and pepper. Reserve the marinade for later.

  4. Cook the chicken skewers for 3 to 4 minutes per side, turning once until the chicken is no longer pink inside and cooked through. Remove chicken skewers from the grill and place them on a serving plate.

  5. Meanwhile or after, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 12 minutes.

  6. Remove from heat, and brush the glaze onto the skewers until they are all evenly coated. Serve warm.
