Servings 4 people


  • 1 1/2 lbs. chicken thighs boneless, skinless
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger finely grated
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp gochujang
  • chopped green onions optional garnish


  • Cut chicken into 1 1/2" cubes and toss in a bowl. In another small bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients (except chopped green onions if using) to make the marinade.

  • When the chicken is done marinating, place your chicken on skewers and heat the grill to medium heat.
  • Once the grill is hot, place skewers on lightly oiled grill. Turn the skewers every 3-4 minutes until the chicken is cooked through (internal temp 165 degrees), about 20-30 minutes.┬áDuring the last few turns baste with remaining sauce.
  • Remove skewers from grill and serve with chopped green onions (optional) and your favorite side dishes!
