serves 3-4


  • 12 inch cast iron pan or skillet
  • 4-5 skewers (optional: soak for 10 minutes)


Serve with:

Traditional: Serve with white rice, pickled ginger, and lemon.

Mix it up: Serve with a side salad and roasted vegetables.


  1. Lightly salt + pepper the chicken.
  2. Carefully thread chicken on the skewers, leaving 1-2 inches free at the bottom. (Pro tip: don’t crowd your skewers, we recommend 5-6 chicken cubes per skewer.)
  3. Heat 2 tsp oil in a skillet over medium heat for 2 minutes.
  4. Place chicken skewers into the pan and let them sear for 4 minutes. Flip and sear on the other side for 3 minutes. 
  5. Brush half of the Omsom starter over chicken, flip, and let the glaze caramelize for 1 minute. (Pro tip: don’t worry if the glaze darkens. Caramelized goodness is coming!)Brush chicken with the remaining starter, flip, and cook for 1 more minute, or until it is cooked through. 
  6. Remove skewers from the pan (be careful: they’re hot!), add a pinch of salt to taste, and you’re done! Serve with some of our suggested favorites. Enjoy!
