Honey Mustard Chicken Skewer Marinade Q & A

How much chicken per skewers do I need?

Use about 3 ounces of chicken per skewer.

Do you recommend metal or wooden skewers?

I like metal skewers because I can use them over and over again.  They also don’t burn while cooking.

How long should I marinate my chicken?

You can marinate it for 3 -18 hours. I like to do mine overnight.

Another helpful hint

Use a grilling sheet such as this Cookina Resusable Grilling Sheet, and lucky you it can be found at all Home Depot stores nationwide! The grilling sheet is basically a thin mat that you lay over your grill. Great for veggies or smaller items that might fall through too. When you are using glazes, they tend to drip down into your grill. Using a grilling sheet covers the grates so that the extra glaze can’t escape to the flames and cause all sorts of smoking.
