  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breast or tenders - cut into chunks
  • 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoons chili paste - more for extra heat (I use 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 Tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 4 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 lime freshly squeezed
  • 3 cloves garlic - minced
  • 1 large zucchini squash - sliced
  • 1/2 large red bell pepper - cubed
  • 1/2 large yellow bell pepper - cubed
  • 1/2 large red onion - cubed
  • rice or cauliflower rice - to serve


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the soy sauce, chili paste, oyster sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, lime juice, and garlic. Reserve about 1/4 cup, and pour remaining marinade into zip-lock bag or a dish with a lid. 

  2. Cut chicken breast into 1.5 inch cubes, add it to the marinade, and place in refrigerator for a couple of hours or overnight. 

  3. Prepare veggies by cubing them.

  4. Heat an outdoor grill (or indoor grill works too), to medium high heat.

  5. Place chicken and vegetables on skewers, leaving a little bit of room on the ends for flipping.

  6. Grill chicken skewers until done inside (about 165 degrees on a digital thermometer), approximately 20 minutes or so.

  7. Serve chicken skewers over rice or cauliflower rice. Add reserved marinade if so desired.
