Tangy BBQ chicken skewers are a delicious and flavorful dish that combines the smoky taste of grilled chicken with a tangy and sweet barbecue sauce. Here's a simple recipe to make tangy BBQ chicken skewers:


  • 1.5 pounds (680 grams) boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce (choose your favorite flavor)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey or brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes


  1. In a bowl, combine the BBQ sauce, soy sauce, honey (or brown sugar), apple cider vinegar (or lemon juice), minced garlic, smoked paprika, and black pepper. Mix well to create the marinade.

  2. Place the chicken pieces in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken, making sure all the pieces are coated. Marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight for best results.

  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

  4. While the grill is heating, thread the marinated chicken pieces onto the soaked wooden skewers.

  5. Once the grill is hot, lightly oil the grates to prevent sticking. Place the chicken skewers on the grill and cook for about 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and slightly charred.

  6. While grilling, you can brush some additional marinade on the chicken skewers for extra flavor.

  7. Once cooked, remove the skewers from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes. Serve the tangy BBQ chicken skewers hot with your favorite side dishes like coleslaw, grilled vegetables, or rice.

Enjoy your delicious tangy BBQ chicken skewers!
