I got this recipe from Home Cooking April 2007. I made it and it was delectable... I went nuts when i lost the recipe but I found it again last week. So to safeguard it, I'm posting it and sharing with everyone! You need to prepare the marinade overnight (sometimes I even marinate for 2 days). In the ingredients list, items marked with a (M) indicate it's an ingredient for the marinade. Items marked with a (D) indicate it's for the dipping sauce. This goes great with white steamed rice!

- Place skewers on prepared broiler pan and broil until cooked through and brown on the outside, about 5 minutes.

I only needed the marinade, as I had some dipping sauce from a local restaurant that I defrosted. And, I added two cloves of garlic to the marinade. It is delicious. The chicken is marinading now and we will grill it indoors (it's raining outside) on a Forman Grill. Really looking forward to it. Thanks for the great recipe! Exactly what I was looking for.
