Our Growing Edge: Chicken and red onion skewers with sesame seeds


Is it weird that I bought myself a Christmas gift? Not if it’s a Le Creuset skillet grill (I’m the biggest Le Creuset fan – everything tastes better when made in their cast iron goods)! And how pretty is it in this palm green? I just couldn’t resist!

This skillet grill is perfect for meats and as a test run I made these simple but delicious chicken and red onion skewers. The soy sauce and honey makes for a dark and sticky outside, and when you bite into the chicken it’s juicy and bursts with flavour. These skewers are perfect for a weeknight dinner when served with a toss salad.




4 chicken breasts, cubed

2 red onions, quartered

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons soy sauce

Sesame seeds


1. Mix the honey, lemon juice and soy sauce in a bowl. Add the chicken to the sauce and let it rest in the fridge for about an hour.

2. Skewer the chicken breast cubes and red onion into skewer sticks. You can make about four large skewers or eight smaller ones.

3. Add a drop of olive oil to a skillet grill and heat at a high temperature. Place the skewers on the skillet and rotate every 2 minutes or so until it’s cooked.

4. Sprinkle sesame seeds on the chicken skewers and serve with a green salad.
