Grilled Paprika Chicken Skewers

Need a new grilling recipe for summer? Try these, your family will love them.

I haven't grilled many meat skewers, but creating this recipe inspired me to do it more often. The beauty of cutting meat in smaller pieces is that it marinates quickly, and all the sides of the meat have that glorious grilled crust.

These skewers are bursting with flavor. The buttermilk tenderizes the chicken and the flavors (honey, paprika, and garlic) work well together. Be sure to enjoy these fresh off the grill and don't forget about the sour cream dipping sauce!

Grilled Paprika Chicken Skewers

Serves 4-6

6-8 boneless chicken thighs

1/2 large onion


1/2 cup buttermilk

3 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon hot sauce

3 garlic cloves, crushed

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon chopped parsley, (fresh or dried)

Sour Cream Dipping Sauce

1/2 cup sour cream

1 teaspoon sriracha

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon lime juice

pinch of salt

Chop chicken into 1-2" pieces. Cut onion into 1-2" segments.

In a medium bowl mix together marinade ingredients. Add chicken pieces and mix well. Marinate in the refrigerator for 3-8 hours.

Before grilling soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes to prevent them from catching fire.

Alternately thread chicken and onions onto skewers.

Grill on a medium high grill until done. (Around 7 minutes a side, or until cooked through.)

In a small bowl mix together dipping sauce ingredients. Serve sauce on the side.
