Say you've mastered Sriracha, the hot sauce of the decade, the hip culinary thing of five years ago. Time to move on up, spread your wings, and bring a new sauce into your life that comes from Asia and starts with the letter-S: Sambal! Less sweet than Sriracha, with more vinegar notes and direct chile flavor, sambal brings these skewers to a new level, infusing every bite of chicken with the perfect spice. Now that you've got sambal down, you've ready for the sauce Olympics.

    1

    Marinate the Chicken

    Pat chicken breasts dry and cut into 1" dice. In a mixing bowl, thoroughly combine diced chicken, honey, sambal (to taste), and ¼ tsp. salt. Thread chicken on skewers. There should be about three pieces per skewer. Place chicken skewers on prepared baking sheet and pour honey-sambal mixture over. Set aside to marinate at least 5 minutes.

  • Step 2 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

  • Step 3 - Roast the Chicken

    Roast the Chicken

    Roast chicken skewers in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 8-10 minutes. Don't worry if sauce burns on the baking sheet. Sugars in honey burn easily. While chicken roasts, cook green beans.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Green Beans

    Cook the Green Beans

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add green beans to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes. Stir in ¼ cup water, ginger, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Cover and cook until green beans are tender, 2-3 minutes. Remove from burner. While green beans cook, make lime dipping sauce.

  • Step 5 - Make Dipping Sauce and Finish Dish
