  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 2/3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves (1/3 pound per person)
  • 16 to 24 bamboo skewers (10-inches each), soaked
  • Cooking Directions

    In a small bowl mix together the oil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and black pepper. Set aside.

    Cut the chicken breast halves into 1-inch cubes. Thread 4 to 5 pieces of the chicken on each wooden skewer. Place the skewered chicken in a shallow oblong dish in a layer no more than 2 deep. Pour the reserved marinade over them. Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or up to 8 hours.

    When you're ready to grill the chicken, turn on a gas grill to medium-high.

    Place the skewers of chicken on the hot grill and grill for 6 to 10 minutes, turning frequently, on an uncovered grill. Serve immediately.
