Skewered Sesame Chicken
These flavorful, marinated skewers of chicken are as easy as they are tasty. Wonderful served with jasmine rice and a salad.
1/2 cup MAGGI Seasoning Sauce
1/2 cup saké (rice wine)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon MAGGI Instant Chicken Flavor Bouillon
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
4 (about 1 pound total) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
12 (6-inch) wooden skewers
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro (optional)
- Combine seasoning sauce, saké, sugar, garlic, gingerroot, chicken base or bouillon and sesame oil in medium bowl; reserve 1/3 cup. Add chicken to remaining marinade; toss to coat. Marinate in refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
- Thread chicken onto skewers. Grill or broil chicken, turning and basting with reserved marinade, for 10 to 15 minutes or until no longer pink. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and cilantro.
Makes 4 servings.
Tip: If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes before threading.
