Recipe Review: Sambal Chicken Skewers

Sambal Chicken Skewers

Sambal Chicken Skewers

I always look forward to the grilling issue of Bon Appetit that arrives every July.  Last year’s Grilled Turmeric and Lemongrass Chicken was absolutely delicious and one of the best recipes I have made in the past couple years.  In 2013, the cover recipe is for Sriracha-Glazed Sambal Chicken Skewers.  Sriracha is a fiery, vinegary hot sauce – a thick, Asian version of Tabasco.  Chicken is marinated in sambal oelek (chile and garlic paste), sriracha, fish sauce, brown sugar, and rice vinegar.  The marinade is then reduced to a basting sauce that is applied to the chicken as it grills.  This is very good recipe and is quite spicy with a lot of flavor.

Cost: about $10

Level of difficulty: moderate

Deliciousness: great (3.5 out of 5 stars)

Make again: yes
