Easy Balsamic Chicken Skewers

Raven Higheagle


Everyone has their own entertaining style, usually learned through trial and errors.
Me? Perhaps contrary to popular assumptions about food bloggers always cooking up a storm, I have learned that I prefer to keep things really simple, when entertaining a crowd. Sure, on special occasions, I like to get all fancy and gourmet. I tend to aim for a 30-minute meal that is hopefully mostly prepped by the time people arrive. Balsamic Chicken Skewers. I have made these a few times this summer for my friends, and they’re always a hit.

  • 1/4 c

How to Make Easy Balsamic Chicken Skewers


  1. Whisk together balsamic vinegar and honey until combined to form your marinade.
  2. Add the marinade and chicken pieces to a large Ziploc bag or mixing bowl, and toss until combined.
  3. Seal/cover and refrigerate to marinate for 8 hours.
  4. Also, if you are using wooden skewers, set them to soak in a pan of water for 30 minutes so that they do not burn.
  5. When you are ready to cook the chicken, heat a grill to medium-high heat.
  6. Remove the chicken pieces from the marinade, reserving the marinade for later, and thread chicken onto skewers.
  7. Season the skewers generously with salt and pepper.
  8. Place on a grill that has been lightly greased with cooking spray.
  9. Cook the chicken skewers for 3-4 minutes per side, turning once, until the chicken is no longer pink inside and cooked through.
  10. Remove chicken skewers from grill and place on a serving plate.
  11. Meanwhile or after, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
  12. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for about 12 minutes, or until the mixture is reduced by half and is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  13. (The glaze will thicken even more as it cools.) Remove from heat, and brush the glaze onto the skewers until they are all evenly coated.
  14. *For a shortcut, you can also marinate the chicken in 1/2 cup of DeLallo's pre-made balsamic glaze. Then once the chicken has been grilled, brush (a separate) 1/2 cup of balsamic glaze onto the cooked chicken skewers.
