Every time I serve these, people absolutely gobble them up and then proceed to ask for the recipe. It’s so simple it always surprises them! Just a few ingredients is all you really need to make these chicken skewers really sing on the grill.

And the key is to use boneless skinless chicken thighs. They are my secret weapon on the grill and always stay super moist. Ditch the chicken breasts and head for the thighs when it comes to grilling.
