The most important thing about my recipe is the chicken I choose. I believe in choosing quality ingredients and with my chicken I choose to use Canadian chicken. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Chicken Farmers of Canada for years and these days I always look for their Raised By A Canadian Farmer logo in the grocery store.

Canadian chicken farmers have always been proud to provide Canadians with the highest quality chicken. Our farmers adhere to a strict mandatory On-Farm Food Safety Assurance Program (OFFSAP), a national standard that has received federal, provincial and territorial government recognition and full recognition by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. They also follow a mandatory and auditable Animal Care Programto ensure high animal care standards are being upheld on Canadian chicken farms across Canada.

Knowing that my chicken is raised by the Chicken Farmers of Canada just gives me confidence in what I’m serving my family and friends. If you’re not seeing this logo on the chicken in your grocery store, go ask your retailer to carry it!

  1. We are a family of 5 and every one of us loved these. My wife made them with less Tabasco and more garlic, but A little spicy and sweet. And low fat! we love that! , we had this with rice pilaf. and green beans.

  2. These look and sound scrumptious , thanks for sharing the recipe , a must try , my family would love these :)

  3. Your posts make eating healthy look so yummy!! Bookmarked and want to try the Teriaki Chicken Skewers first <3

  4. Just wondering what kind of vinegar to use…balsamic vinegar, white vinegar, rice vinegar?

    1. I happened to have rice vinegar and it came out great! If you don’t rice I think white vinegar would be better than cider or balsamic.

  5. Just made this last night as part of my “tapas night” dinner and was a huge hit! Thank you for sharing this recipe, it’s a true keeper!

  6. Just made this recipe tonight…..it was fantastic…everyone loved it…Will be making it again soon… thank you Julie!

  7. Can I marinate overnight? I am making for a party and I want to prepare everything the night before.

  8. Just made these tonight for a potluck dinner club. These were Fantastic!! So easy to put together. I could only marinate for about 30 minutes and they still had great flavour. I served these over coconut rice. Will definitely make this part of my dinner routine! Thanks 😋

  9. This recipe looks great! Is there any chance you can help me increase the recipe to feed about 40 people? Thanks so much!

  10. This was very good and I will definitely fix it again. I’ll probably just cut up the chicken and serve it over rice for when we have it at home but doing the skewers are perfect for a party. I added a couple pinches of cayenne pepper to the extra marinade and boiled it for the dipping sauce. It added a nice little kick. I also used thighs because I don’t like white meat.

  11. Making this tonight. I did end up using white wine vinegar. Have to wait and see. I also plan on boiling the remaining sauce to thicken it and use for dipping.
