Sticky Chicken Skewers

Need a quick dinner idea or an easy potluck option? These sticky chicken skewers are it!

I took these to your 4th of July potluck and they were a hit. Easy to make and perfect for your next tailgate, birthday or bbq! Besides sticky + chicken is two words that just belong together!

Chicken Thighs

I know, some folks don’t like them. But boneless/ skinless chicken thighs don’t have the same ick factor as the other ones and they have more fat than the breast. They roast up crispy on their own. Then you add in the warm spices and the sweet basting mix here. Boom! Such a delicious combination. Give them a shot! Besides chicken thighs are usually MUCH cheaper than the breast.

These sticky chicken skewers will be a hit! Promise 🙂
