Balsamic & Honey Chicken Skewers {with Strawberry-Kiwi Salsa} Recipe



  • 1 Pound Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts – cut into 1’’ cubes
  • 2 TBS Balsamic Vinegar
  • 3 TBS Honey, divided
  • 1 clove of Garlic – minced
  • ¼ tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 TBS Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  • 10 large Strawberries – hulled and small dice
  • 2 Kiwis – peeled and small dice
  • 1 Jalapeno Pepper – minced*
  • ¼ Cup Red Onion – finely diced
  • 2 TBS Fresh Mint Leaves – chopped
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • Pinch of Salt and Pepper


  1. Marinate the Chicken: In a medium bowl whisk together the balsamic, 2 tablespoons of honey, garlic, basil and olive oil. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Transfer to a large Ziplock bag and add in the chicken. Seal and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, up to overnight, turning occasionally to make sure the chicken is evenly marinating.
  2. Prepare the Salsa: In a small bowl, gently combine all ingredients together. Taste and adjust for seasoning. Set aside in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  3. Preheat Grill to Medium-High: Thread the chicken onto skewers and set aside on a clean plate. Season with salt and pepper. Spray grates of grill with non-stick cooking spray. Cook the chicken, turning every 3-5 minutes, for a total of 8-10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through (to an internal temperature of 165 degrees F). Remove from grill and transfer to a clean work surface. Brush chicken with remaining 1 tablespoon of honey. Allow to rest for 2 minutes.
  4. Serve chicken with salsa and enjoy!
