  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 2-4


6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 bunch of green onions


5 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp of honey
2 tbsp sake (optional - give it authentic Japanese flavors)

1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tsp white pepper


2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp honey


  1. Cut the chicken thighs into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Soak the bamboo skewers in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning.
  3. Whisk together the soy sauce, sake, oyster sauce, garlic, sesame oil, avocado oil, and white pepper in a bowl
  4. Add the chicken pieces to the bowl and toss to coat evenly. 
  5. Cut the green onions into 1-inch pieces. 
  6. Thread the chicken and green onions onto the soaked bamboo skewers
  7. Marinate for at least 30 minutes or overnight in the fridge.
  8. Preheat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  9. Brush the grill with oil to prevent sticking.
  10. Grill the chicken skewers on each side for 6-8 minutes or until fully cooked and slightly charred. Baste with honey and soy sauce for more flavor.
  11. Serve and enjoy!
