These are delicious, savory chicken skewers that are great for any occasion!


  • 2 lb chicken thighs – boneless skinless
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 bunch chopped cilantro – chopped, about 1/4 cup
  • black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil – grapeseed, canola, or sunflower oil


  1. Prep the chicken ingredients – cut all the cilantro, chop the garlic, then cut the chicken into 1″ pieces. Mix the chicken with the chopped cilantro, garlic, balsamic vinegar, black pepper, and kosher salt. Give everything a mix.
  2. Skewer the chicken, then pan sear or grill on medium high heat for about 12 minutes, flipping occasionally. The thickest chicken piece should reach 165. Garnish with additional cilantro leaves, and serve!


You can have this marinating in the fridge for up to three days.

I prefer using chicken thighs for this recipe, but you could also do this with chicken breast as well.
