Chicken skewers

Chicken Skewer is a popular  street food consisting of small pieces of chicken and scallions grilled on a skewer. You will get this food all the time in ambitious restaurants or in small kitchen on the streets.There are many varieties of chicken skewers with different tastes but I marinated this recipe in Indonesian style.

Boneless chicken thigh is a fattier than breast,so tastes much better and gives you juicier without the stringiness.Chicken can be marinaded up to 1 day in advance. I don’t recommend marinating the chicken for longer than 24 hours, and scrape off the before grilling so it doesnot drip down among the coals or burn the meat.

Skewer is also served with dipping sauce to complement the meat.

Grill Chicken Skewer

 Grill the chicken skewers for 2-3 minutes on each side until the meat is fully cooked.
