Step 1

In a bowl combine water, apple cider vinegar, soy sauce, fish sauce, honey, red pepper flakes, black peppercorns, anise pods and bay leaf. Set aside.

In a shallow sealable container or in a large Ziploc bag, combine chicken chunks and marinade.

Cover (or seal) and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes (marinate overnight for fullest flavor.)

In the meantime make Sriracha ketchup. In a small bowl, whisk together ketchup, sriracha, honey, lime juice, cilantro, and vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside.

Remove the chicken chunks from the marinade and skewer onto stainless steel skewer (or bamboo sticks that have been soaked in water for 5 minutes).

Heat a grill or a grill pan to medium-high (if you’re using an outdoor grill lightly oil the grates.)

Grill the chicken kebabs until golden brown and cooked through, about 6 to 8 minutes.

Sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro and serve with Sriracha ketchup on the side.
