Chicken kebabs tips:
When using metal skewers apply a light coating of cooking oil or cooking spray before threading foods to ensure they will come off with ease .When planning to grill using wooden skewers , soak them in cold water at least twenty minutes before you plan to thread and cook .Moisture prevents the wood from catching fire and scorching your food .You may also want to use a light coating of oil or cooking spray on wooden skewers depending on the type of wood skewer you select .Regardless of the type of skewer , cook over medium high heat to be sure the interior of your food is cooked appropriately while fully caramelizing the exterior without overly searing or charring .
