Grill Honey and Porter Glazed Chicken Kebabs

Grill Honey and Porter Glazed Chicken Kebabs

Savannah Bee Company’s Grill Honey is a tantalizing blend of some of the most robust honey varietals around. This sweet but savory combination works especially well as a marinade for chicken dishes, and these kebabs are no exception. 

An oatmeal porter, like the one used in this dish, is the perfect complement to these tangy kebabs. Whether roasted or grilled, these kebabs are great for dinner parties or served as appetizers.

  • Prep Time
  • 4-6 servingsServings


  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon (or other spicy) mustard
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/3 cup Savannah Bee Company's Grill Honey
  • 1/2 cup Highland Brewing Company's Oatmeal Porter (or beer of choice)
  • 3-4 chopped shallots
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs, cubed
  • Chopped cilantro


1. Whisk together garlic, red pepper flakes, Dijon, soy sauce, black pepper, olive oil, honey, and beer.

2. Add the chicken to the marinade and refrigerate for anywhere from 1 hour to overnight.

3. After the chicken has marinated, put the chicken in a pan and set marinade aside.

4. Sautee chopped shallots in a pot with a little olive oil, then add leftover marinade. Bring marinade to a boil and then simmer for 8 minutes. Marinade will thicken and become a glaze.

5. Bake chicken in the pan at 400° for 30-40 minutes and brush on glaze halfway through.

6. Remove chicken and skewer each piece. Brush once more with glaze and sprinkle chopped cilantro on top.

7. Enjoy!


1. Cilantro works well with this recipe, but try different fresh herbs until you find the one for you.

2. If serving as an appetizer, skip the big skewers and opt for decorative toothpicks instead.

3. Do you like your chicken spicy? Up the ante with extra chilis and sriracha!

4. Try Savannah Bee Acacia honey for a brighter sweetness.
