Recipe by MsPia

I got this recipe from a Low Calorie better Homes and Gardens (Spring 1998) I'm really not a low calorie kind of person (I should be...) but this is a delicious meal. Enjoy! Preparation time includes 2 hour marinating time.

Many thanks! I have been searching for this recipe since the magazines aren't available and I lost mine in a move way back.....

  1. Combine vinegar, honey, oil, garlic, cumin, paprika, cayenne, salt and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  2. Rinse chicken; pat dry with paper towels. Cut each chicken breast into 4 lengthwise strips. Thread chicken, accordion-style, on eight 8-inches skewers. (If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes).

  4. Grill skewers on the rack of an uncovered grill over medium-hot coals for 8 to 10 minutes, or till chicken is tender and no longer pink, turning and brushing with reserved marinade halfway through grilling time. Or, place skewers on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil skewers 4 inches from heat for 5 minutes. Turn and brush with reserved marinade; broil3 to 5 minutes more or until chicken is tender and no longer pink.
