"We love pretty much anything grilled on a skewer. Everyone loved this. I have also used the same recipe for grilled pork chops, and strips of pork and beef sirloin on a skewer with excellent results."

"This is one of my very favorite recipes on the grill, and there are so many ways to use leftovers, although I don't usually have many. When I serve this chicken to guests they always love it."
