Chicken on skewers can become a easy way to impress your guests. Even if you are a beginner, you can make your dishes look like a chef’s. There are so many recipes out there which may confuse us. But starting with the easier recipes is a smart way to learn. I love making them occasionally and enjoy every bit of it.

I have listed 2 of my favorite chicken skewer recipes.

There are only 2 steps –

1. Marinating – This is the most important step because the longer the marinating time, the better the flavor will infuse in the meat. I prefer overnight marinating in the refrigerator.

2. Grilling in oven or on stove in aflat grill pan.
