Chicken on a Stick

"Chicken is my family's favorite meat, whether it's roasted, barbecued or whatever," says Susan Post from Baltimore, Ontario. "I make these skewered chicken strips often, especially during the summer months. They're popular at our annual family picnic, too."

    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.
