  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts sliced into strips
  • 1/2 cup beer (any - I typically use a lager)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons sriracha
  • 5 cloves garlic finely minced
  • sesame seeds (garnish)


  • Soak 8-10 bamboo skewers in water.
  • Add chicken to glass container, or a large ziplock bag. Add all the marinating ingredients, and mix together well until the chicken is evenly coated.
  • Marinate for 2-4 hours, shaking the chicken up in the marinade at least once mid way through.
  • Do not over marinade the chicken. With strips of chicken breasts, it marinades quite quickly. If you leave it soaking overnight, the chicken will over marinate and the texture gets too soft.
  • Thread the chicken on bamboo skewers, and grill over high heat for 10-15 minutes, depending on your BBQ.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds.
