This is great with Peanut Noodle Salad. It's refreshing and a nice change of pace from your average grilled chicken. If you don't have bamboo skewers, don't worry... I don't use them half the time either. Just grill chicken and enjoy.

- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1 shallot, peeled and finely chopped
