Rosemary Skewered Chicken



Woops! May have forgotten to take a picture until almost all of the Rosemary Skewered Chicken was gone! Like that hasn’t happened before though! Ridiculous!


We made these papas the other night and while we didn’t have any fresh rosemary on hand they still were really delicious. We love the citrus with the rosemary. It’s really light and refreshing to eat. Perfect for a summer BBQ.


Can You Cook Skewered Chicken In The Oven?

You can cook skewered chicken in the oven or on a grill.

When using an oven, place the skewers in a pre-heated 450 degree oven on the center rack. 

Bake for 10 minutes, turn over once. 

Bake for 10-15 minutes longer.


Do You Have To Soak Skewers Before Using?

To keep skewers from burning, soak your skewers in water before using them.

Skewers should be soaked for a minimum of 30 minutes, but soaking overnight is really the best.
