These chicken skewers are so easy to make it's laughable. The key is the sauce… I make these when I have leftover Spicy BBQ Sauce or another BBQ sauce on hand that I've whipped up, however there's nothing to stop you from using store bought sauce for these. When I do have some leftover sauce in the fridge, I whip these up for lunch or a quick dinner and they're always completely satisfying.
Don't get too caught up on the measurements here - they're just a guide. Feel free to use as much or as little chicken and sauce as you like or have on hand. You're really just looking for the pieces to be nicely coated, so use your judgement. The rice, is of course optional however I love it with these skewers because it helps to cut some of the heat from the spice in the sauce. That said, you could do the same with a bed of mashed potatoes or if you're brave, turn up the heat by serving them on their own.
Approximately 1 cup Spicy BBQ Sauce (or other BBQ sauce)
About 300g chicken breast chunks (chicken breast cut into 1 inch dice)
200g cooked white rice (optional)
6-8 metal or wooden skewers
1. If you're using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes to an hour before using to prevent them burning and smoking while cooking.
2. Marinate the chicken chunks in the BBQ sauce for about 30 minutes at room temperature and preheat the grill (or broiler) on high.
3. When the chicken has been marinating long enough, thread it onto the skewers about 4 or 5 pieces to each skewer.
4. Grill the skewers for about 5 minutes or so on each side until the chicken starts to brown slightly and the pieces are cooked all the way through.
