  1. Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag set in a deep bowl. In a small bowl, combine ¼ cup salsa, olive oil, garlic, poultry seasoning, and lemon-pepper seasoning. Seal bag; turn to coat chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  2. Thread chicken onto eight 12-inch-long skewers (see Tip), leaving a ¼-inch space between pieces.
  3. Place skewers on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink, brushing with the remaining ½ cup salsa during the last 2 minutes of grilling.
  • Tip: If using wooden skewers, soak in enough water to cover for 1 hour before using.
