Grill the chicken without the skewers to save time. Increase the cook time by a few minutes, if necessary.

Wooden skewers
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts or tenderloins
1/3 cup chopped fresh rosemary
3 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

Soak 8 {6-inch} wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes. Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces. Thread the chicken on the skewers & place in a dish. Whisk together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Brush the mixture on both sides of the chicken. Let stand 15 minutes. Grill over Medium-High heat {about 400 degrees} 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove from the grill once the juices run clear.

How To Soak Wooden Skewers For Outdoor Grilling

Soaking wooden skewers before cooking helps prevent them from catching fire when grilling outdoors over an open flame. It’s an important step that should not be omitted when preparing beef, chicken, turkey or pork kabobs. Apply this procedure for 4, 6 & 12-inch wooden skewers.

Fill a shallow dish or pan with water. Be certain the skewers rest flat & completely inside the container. Rectangular shapes tend to be best. Add the wooden skewers. Let stand at least 30 minutes. Remove them from the water. The wooden skewers are now ready to be thread with meat & vegetables. Season or marinate according to specific recipe instruction.
