Add the chicken, stir to coat well, and let marinate for at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.Thread the chicken, interspersed with the mushrooms, on 4 metal skewers. Keep the marinade. (If you are using bamboo skewers, be sure to soak them in cold water for at least 30 minutes before using.)Heat a grill to high heat.Brush the skewers and the scallions with a bit of olive oil, ensuring you coat the mushrooms well.Grill skewers for 15-18 minutes, rotating occasionally, until chicken is cooked through. Grill the scallions for about 3 minutes until slightly softened and browned.While skewers are grilling, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and add the remaining ½ cup of water, the rice vinegar, and the honey. Bring to a complete, rolling boil and continue boiling for at least one minute (this must be done to kill any bacteria from the raw chicken), then reduce to a simmer and cook for another 4 – 5 minutes. Remove from heat.Plate skewers and top with cilantro. Serve with lime wedges, sticky rice, roasted broccolini, and the hot marinade.Recipe and Photography: Rebecca WellmanchickenmushroomsOct|NovOct|Nov issueRebecca Wellmanrecipeshiitakeskewers SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Rebecca Wellman Having lived on the West Coast all her life, Rebecca made the move from Vancouver to Vancouver Island in 2004 to pursue her love of fine food and expressive portraiture.
