These colorful and flavorful Asian Chicken Kabobs go great with the pasta salad from yesterday and would make a delicious Labor Day dinner whether grilled or baked or broiled. Start the farewell-to-summer meal with Cool Cucumber Lime Sangria and Elizabeth’s Spinach Dip and end it with Chocolate Éclair Cake. All of these can be found on my website.


The marinade in today’s Asian Chicken Kabobs is one of my favorites. I changed it very little from its original version in one of my earliest cookbooks. I switched the cooking oil to sesame oil, which gives it a bolder, more Asian flavor. I also added another favorite ingredient, bottled Sweet Chili Sauce.
