Honey Turmeric Chicken Skewers - Honey Recipes By Manawa Honey NZ, Ruatahuna, Te Urewera


  • 6 chicken thighs cubed, de-boned, skin-on
  • 2 tbsps Rewarewa Honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsps fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • Scant 3/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • 1 tbsp oil of choice
  • 8 bamboo skewers


In a medium sized bowl add the garlic, Rewarewa Honey, lemon juice, spices, pepper and salt. Combine well and then add the chicken and turn to cover all the chicken pieces. Cover and rest in fridge for 2 hours.  Soak bamboo skewers in water for 1 hour.

About 30 minutes before heating the grill, remove the chicken from the fridge and let sit at room temperature.

Thread the chicken on the skewers, packing tightly together.

Make a glaze from the marinade by bringing to the boil in a saucepan then simmering for about 5 minutes or until thick.

Brush the chicken skewers with the glaze and BBQ over medium heat, turning occasionally. Brush with glaze as you wish, and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until cooked through. Serves 4.
