Grill

TIP Show/Hide
If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes to keep skewers from burning on the grill. If using metal skewers, remember your chicken will cook faster because the metal will conduct the heat and cook the chicken cubes from the inside as well as the grill heat cooking the chicken from the outside.
