Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag set in a deep bowl. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 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.

  • Thread chicken onto eight 12-inch-long skewers (see Tip), leaving a 1/4-inch space between pieces.

  • 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 1/2 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.
