sesame chicken skewers 

this recipe (increased amounts, of course) would be great finger food for a party!

marinade: all amounts are approximate - I just add add add...so I'm guessing at the amounts

1/2 c soy sauce
3 tbs honey
3 tbs ketchup
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tbs fresh ginger, chopped
a dash of sesame oil

combine together

other stuff:

2-3 breasts chicken
wooden skewers, soaked in water
sesame seeds

chop up chicken breasts into bite sized pieces and combine with marinade (a ziplock bag works nicely for this)
marinate for at least 20 minutes

skewer chicken, a few peices per skewer. my chicken pieces were a little long, so I double skewered them - weaving them on.

sprinkle with sesame seeds and place on hot grill. grill each side a few minutes. (depends on how big your chunks are)

in the meantime, pour the marinade into a small pot and put over medium high heat. bring to boil. boil for 5 minutes while stirring (careful, it can burn!), then remove from heat. this kills all the nasty salmonella bugs and now your marinade is a tasty dipping sauce. you can probably just make extra marinade and reserve it for this purpose, but I didn't think of that ahead of time, now did I?
