Here's the drill: asparagus spears meet sweet-heat chicken and are capped off with a perfectly blistered tomato. Build it low for an appetizer or stack it high to accommodate dinnertime hunger.


  • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • 8 cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • 8 wooden skewers


  • Cut chicken breasts into 1-in. cubes. Coat with soy sauce in a bowl.
  • Cut asparagus spears into pieces. Alternately thread cherry tomatoes, chicken and asparagus on skewers.
  • Oil grill. Barbecue over medium, lid closed, until chicken is cooked through, 3 to 4 min per side. Brush with sweet chili sauce.


Can’t find sweet chili sauce? Stir 2 tbsp honey with 2 tsp rice vinegar and 1/4 tsp chili-garlic sauce or use Sriracha.
