sesame chicken skewers -- gluten free + dairy free

man oh man, what a long week. glad that the weekend has finally arrived! ive got another jam-packed weekend ahead of me. already have another baby photoshoot - quite excited (just posted the new pics - click here to view them on flickr!). PLUS - my macbook pro has arrived. i have a feeling i'll be spending quite a bit of time transferring files and will FINALLY have a chance to organize all of my photos.

i decided to put together these delicious skewers a few nights ago for supper. i've had these on my to-cook-list for some time now. i'm really big into asian flavors and love the combo of sweet and salty along side nutty sesame. i didnt have enough time to marinate my chicken beforehand and highly recommend doing so - the flavor will permeate the meat and make it stand out much more. it took no time to cook these up and served them on a bed of basmati rice with a handful of fresh cilantro.

sesame chicken skewers
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into chunks
  • 2 red bell peppers cut into chunks
  • 2 cups button mushrooms cut into halves
  • 1/2 large sweet onion cut into chunks
  • 2 c cooked basmati rice
  • fresh cilantro (for garnish)
tamari - sesame marinade
  • 6 tbsp tamari (gluten free soy sauce)
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp white sesame seeds
  • black pepper (to taste)
in a bowl whisk together tamari, garlic, sugar, sesame oil, sesame seeds and pepper. place chicken chunks in a zip top bag and pour marinade on top of chicken (reserve some if you'd like add'l to pour over your cooked chicken/rice). place bag in fridge for 2 hours minimum. remove chicken chunks from bag and skewer them. to ensure even cooking - i suggest dedicating some skewers just to chicken and others just for veggies (mushrooms, onions, peppers). place skewers directly on grill around 5 minutes each side (cooking time may vary depending on how large your chicken chunks are). serve on top of basmati rice - garnish with cilantro!

  2. These look great!! I am going to try to do them with salmon at some point but I think I will have to wrap the whole thing in foil for a minute for the veggies to cook then the grill just for the char at the end! Love the sesame seeds on top!!
