Indoor BBQ Chicken Skewers

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by DuChick

When the weather keeps you from your outdoor grill, this is a recipe that will remind you of warmer days ahead! Straight from America's Test Kitchens, the recommended brand of store-bought barbecue sauce is Bull's-Eye, although you can certainly mix up your own favorite recipe. You'll need four 12" skewers.

loved the mix of spices and used on my chicken and cooked in a little oil, serving over rice and omitting the sauce part of recipe this time. Thanks so much
