Servings: 4 Servings
- 3 tablespoons plus 2 tablespoons Ah-So sauce
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger
- 2 garlic cloves minced
- 1 pound chicken breast cut length-wise into 1 ½-inch-wide strips
- wooden skewers soaked in water for 20 minutes before using
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
In a small bowl, whisk 3 tablespoons of the Ah-So sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, and 1 tablespoon water.
Put the chicken strips in a gallon-sized re-sealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken, squeeze as much air out of the bag as possible, and seal it. Turn the bag in your hands a few times to coat all of the chicken strips in marinade. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours before grilling.
Make the glaze by whisking the remaining 2 tablespoons of Ah-So sauce and the maple syrup in a small bowl. Set aside.
Preheat your gas grill to medium-high heat. Remove the chicken strips from the marinade, discarding the remaining sauce, and carefully thread one strip of chicken onto a wooden skewer, leaving enough of the wood exposed on one end to allow for you to hold the skewer like a popsicle. Set the prepared strip on a large, rimmed baking sheet while you repeat the threading process with the rest of the chicken.
Grill the skewers for 4 to 5 minutes per side, until the chicken is opaque and cooked through. Once all the skewers are cooked, use a pastry brush to lightly coat each chicken skewer with the Ah-So-Maple glaze. Serve immediately.
