Breaded Chicken Skewers (VIDEO)

These Chicken Skewers are crispy on the outside and so juicy inside. The marinade tenderizes the chicken and adds tons of flavor to this chicken. It’s no wonder this easy chicken recipe has been a family favorite for years.

Breading chicken is one of my favorite ways to prepare chicken because it adds crunch and helps keep the chicken from drying out, just like with our Crispy Chicken Sandwiches and Chicken Parmesan. It also makes the chicken reheat nicely.

This Breaded Chicken Skewers recipe comes from my Aunt Tanya in Washington. Seems like everyone in our family has adopted these chicken skewers. It’s perfect for parties or your next family meal. If you take them off the skewers to serve, they resemble Popcorn Chicken. The kids gave this recipe two thumbs up.

Ingredients for Chicken Skewers

The list of ingredients for chicken skewers is short and simple and you may already have everything you need in your refrigerator and pantry:

  • Chicken – we use chicken breast but you can substitute with chicken thigh meat that has been trimmed of fat. It’s just too much work for me. Chicken breast requires almost no prep.
  • Bread crumbs – we use Italian-style bread crumbs, pictured below.
  • Mayonnaise – adds wonderful moisture and tenderness to the chicken. If you don’t want to use mayo, you can also use ranch but go light on the salt since ranch has more salt in it than mayo.
  • Mrs. Dash – this is our favorite salt-free seasoning. Any all-purpose salt-free seasoning will work here. you could also use the garlic-flavored dash.
  • Salt & Pepper – simple seasonings are all you need.
  • Oil – to sautee the skewers. I use extra light olive oil for nearly all of my cooking, but canola oil, vegetable oil, or any high heat neutral oil will work great.
  • Skewers – I used 12 small wooden skewers. Make sure your skewers fit the length of your skillet comfortably so you can flip them easily.
Ingredients for making chicken skewers

How to Make Skewered Chicken

  1. Cut chicken – cut into 3/4″ wide pieces and add to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Season with salt, pepper, and Mrs. Dash. Stir in 3/4 cup mayo.
  3. Marinate – cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight (although I have also breaded and fried right away without any marinating and they still worked well).
  4. Skewer the chicken onto the wooden sticks.
  5. Breading Pour bread crumbs on a large plate or platter. Roll the chicken skewers in bread crumbs until evenly coated.
  6. Sautee – In a large non-stick pan, add enough oil to generously cover the bottom and place over medium heat. Saute the chicken skewers for 3 minutes per side or until well browned on all sides and 165˚F at the thickest part of the chicken on a thermometer. Place on a paper towel-lined plate to soak up excess oil.

Pro Tip: Wear disposable gloves and a spoon to scrape the seeds out of the spicy peppers and make sure to wash your hands so you don’t accidentally touch your eyes with spicy fingers.

To Serve

You’ll want lemon wedges to squeeze over the fried chicken. It adds brightness and freshness to the chicken. You can also pair these with your favorite dipping sauces such as:

Make-Ahead

  • Marinate – you can marinate overnight for super tender and flavorful chicken then bread and fry before serving.
  • Keeping Skewers Warm – You can make them earlier in the day and warm them up in the oven in a baking dish before your party or dinner.
  • Refrigerating – Once skewers have been sauteed and cooled, cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

I hope these Chicken Skewers become a new favorite for your family for years to come. It’s a chicken recipe that’s worth discovering.

    I use your recipes every night, Natasha! I’m obsessed. I’ve made a great many of your items, but I had to especially comment on this one because of the kid-friendly aspect. I have a wildly picky 5 year old, and this is his favorite meal. He actually really enjoys cooking them with me! My 5 and 6 YO’s crush the entire 2 pounds of these every time we make them! Thanks so much for all the recipes that suit children so well!

    I liked them I just think I’ll use Greek yogurt next time instead of mayo. I am a mayo fan, but less fat and cholesterol are always a good thing. I also found out if you don’t pack the skewers too tightly, they fry more evenly. Great idea Tasty.

    Natasha, definitely 5star. I mean, who doesn’t like food on a stick? I’ve made made these three different ways. First using your recipe, followed to the letter, using bread crumbs. They were delicious, but my wife, who is a strong willed woman (nice way of saying hardheaded) refuses to use dentures to eat. She said they were delicious, but said the breadcrumbs were a bit too gritty for her, so then I made them just dredging the Chicken in seasoned flour, and a second time dipping the Chicken in seasoned batter. All three ways are winners, and my gorgeous wife of 58 years thinks I’m a culinary genius for doing something so simple. She loves them either dredged in flour, or batter dipped. You have several recipes I’m going to try in the future. Thank you so much. Love your web site.

    I’ve always loved making City Chicken, I place the cut and skewered chicken in milk to soak for 10-15 minutes, dip in breadcrumb mixture, a quick dunk in the milk with a second breadcrumb dip. Brown in oil in a pan and finish baking in the oven, always a huge hit with family and friends, an always requested item.

    This fried Chicken on a stick. I think i will try it and spray with EVOO, than in my Air Fryer Oven. I’ll have to let you know how it is. I have a large oven Air fryer. So it does cook a bit different than the drawer Air fryers. Nd of you have some good Air Fryer recipes? Please post. Many have Air Fryers now with quick cooking. We all need more traditional type food.

      Hi Carole, I haven’t tried baking them in an oven or air fryer, so I don’t know exactly what time to tell you; I’d bake at 375 for 30-45 minutes? Again, I haven’t tested this method, and it’s just a guesstimate, so test the chicken to be sure it’s done.

    Hello,
    I am planning on making this recipe in the morning for an evening party. I read that you can reheat in the oven right before a party. What temperature do you suggest so the breading will be crisp and the chicken doesn’t get dried out? Thanks in advance for your response and recipe!

      Hi Carra, I would suggest letting it come to room temperature about 30 minutes then preheat oven to 400 and bake chicken (arranged in a single layer on the baking sheet) for about 12-15 minutes or until chicken is hot.

      Hi Elena, yes that would work fine. Although, I would suggest cooking them and then placing them on a baking sheet and warming them in the oven uncovered before serving. If you try to cover with foil while they are still hot to keep warm, they will get soft/soggy since you would be trapping steam.

    I made this today for the second time within the past month and our family loves it! I made them on the grill (with the bread crumbs) and they turned out great both times. All I did was put aluminum foil on the grill, spread a little bit of oil on it and ta-da. Last time, I forgot the oil and they were sticking and “ripping” quite a bit. They grill for roughly 20-25 mins, turn them every 3-4 mins or so – in case anyone cares lol 😉

        In northeast Ohio, in the 1950-1960’s chicken was expensive so they used pork or veal to make these and it was called ‘city chicken!’ In local grocery stores you can find pork cubes with skewers provided to make city chicken!! ( veal is now so expensive!)

      It’s a salt-free herb seasoning. You can substitute it with your favorite seasoning just check to see if it has salt in it, and if it does, you might cut back slightly on the salt in the recipe.

This morning I made him some oatmeal and he wouldn’t have any so when I reheated a skewer for him, he ate it up in no time 🙂 LOL. I want to make these for my husband’s upcoming birthday party! The only question I have is that I’m afraid of drying the meat out in the oven(if making them ahead of time and then reheating)…is there any suggestions you have for me on how not to do that? Thanks! The reason I’m asking this is because when they were hot off the skillet last night they were so tender and juicy and today they’re still delicious, but deffinitely not as moist.

      I haven’t made these for a party ahead of time – except to make them in the morning and warm them in the oven with foil on top in the evening for the party. That worked out well. I would suggest prepping everything and skewering the marinated chicken the day before – which is the most time-consuming part for me (they will be really juicy if you marinate this long!), then bread them and fry the day of the party and warm them in the oven, covered with foil.
