The origin is said to be Persian or Turkish, but there’s no denying that kebabs have been part of our American culinary lexicon for centuries. We love our Shish Kebabs skewered and roasted over an open flame. We love our kebabs marinated and slathered. We love them with lamb, beef, chicken, pork, vegetables and even fruit. There are never enough ways to enjoy kebabs. Plus, they’re so easy to prepare! This recipe for Sweet and Spicy Chicken Skewers takes the flavor to a new level. Of course, our palate can never get enough of the taste bud teeter totter of spicy and sweet, salty and heat. That’s why you’ll grab just one more skewer, and then maybe one more after that. You’ll notice there are two types of heat in this dish; chili paste and hot sauce like Sriracha. It certainly can kick up the heat, but the flavors from the two chile sources are so different, that it just adds to the overall profile. If you’re not a fan of super spicy, just reduce the chile paste and hot sauce by half and then proceed ahead to a delicious supper on a stick!
