BBQ Chicken Skewers

BBQ Chicken Skewers

16 Bamboo Sticks soaked for at least 1 hour in cold water
4-5 Chicken breast thawed and flattened with a mallet
1 Cup BBQ sauce of choice, bold or spicy works best
2-3 green onions chopped
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp lemon zest
2 tbsp wet minced garlic
pepper to taste

cut flattened chicken in wide strips, thread chicken onto the skewers, mix all other ingredients together and brush onto each skewer, or marinate in a large dish, grill about 2-3 minutes on each side or until cooked through

The BBQ sauce can cause it to burn so watch carefully

You can also cook in the oven

We like to reserve some of the sauce before brushing on the chicken to dip the cooked chicken in.  Or simply cook the sauce in the microwave for 1 minute before serving if you already used it to brush the raw chicken.

You can use flank steak too, but it is thin and cooks quickly so watch carefully
