This is a great chicken kebab recipe to make chicken breast meat tasty and moist. The marinade permeates the chicken and makes every bite a moist tasty morsel. Let’s face it chicken breast meat can be pretty tasteless and prone to drying out.
I would recommend that you buy flat stainless steel skewers, using these stops that annoying habit of the chicken pieces spinning around when you turnover the kebabs during cooking.
If you don’t have flat skewers these then the next best idea is to use round skewers in pairs about 1 inch apart. Bamboo skewers need to be soaked in water before use to prevent burning.
This makes a good dish to put onto the BBQ.
