How to Make it

Step 1. Soak wooden skewers in water for 1-2 hours prior to preparing the chicken. This will keep them from burning when you grill the chicken.

Step 2. In a bowl, combine all of the chicken marinade ingredients together and mix with the chicken cubes. Allow the chicken to marinate for 10 minutes.

Step 3. Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Remove the skewers from the water and thread the cubes of chicken onto the skewers. Place the skewers on the grill and grill for 1-2 minutes on each side.

Step 4. Set your Thermopro thermometer to the poultry setting, or 165 degrees. Place the probe into the thickest cube of chicken and cover the grill. Continue grilling until the temperature reaches 165 degrees. Remove the chicken from the grill and allow to cool

Step 5. Enjoy!
