    WaterMelon's Note:

    Recipe by Nicole Routhier, found in "Classic Cooks". The marinade and chilli sauce is to-die-for! Prep time includes marinating time. You can baste with marinade when grilling the skewers. Can also do without skewers; just don't cut chicken too small.

      Everyone liked this except for me... I did not make the dipping sauce because I simply ran out of time. Will make again with sauce and see if that doesn't do the trick for me. 9 other people thought it was great!

      Excellent flavor to this chicken. I did marinate the chicken overnight and forgot to make the dipping sauce. We actually didn't miss it one bit. Served with rice and Cucumber Asian Salad #75231. Thank you WaterMelon for sharing the recipe. It is one I am sure to return to.
