  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ cup tamari reduced sodium soy sauce
  • ½ cup raw honey
  • ½ cup water
  • 4 cloves of garlic crushed


  • Cut the chicken into cubes and pop into a large glass dish with a lid
  • Whisk together the tamari, honey, water and crushed garlic until well incorporated
  • Pop about ¾ of the mixture on top of the chicken. Stir to combine, put on the lid, and pop into the fridge to marinade for at least 3 hours (up to overnight). Set the extra marinade aside for later.
  • Thread the chicken onto 4 large metal skewers and set on a baking tray lined with parchment paper
  • When you are ready turn the broiler to full heat (the grill for those not in the US). Divide the leftover marinade in half, into two separate bowls (one for brushing the chicken skewers and one for serving). Brush the chicken with some of the marinade from one bowl and pop under the broiler for 4 minutes on one side, turn over, brush again and broil for 4 minutes on the other side
  • Serve up with the extra marinade and enjoy


For the best flavor you are going to want to marinade the chicken overnight, or for at least 3 hours. The chicken skewers can still be made with less marinating time, but the flavor will not be as intense.
These can also be grilled on the bbq, just watch them carefully as they cook very quickly.
