The Marinade:

Marinated in olive oil, lime juice and various spices these skewers are moist and flavorful. You can leave the meat marinating for as little as an hour or as long as 12, which means you can prep them in the morning, head to work and they are ready to pop on the grill when you get home! Just remember, when it comes to marinating, generally longer is better.

The key to successful grilling is a little prep and some high heat. Make sure the grill is clean and sprayed with an organic grill spray before turning it on. Then turn the grill to high heat and turn down if needed as the chicken cooks. When meat comes in contact with a hot grill, it contracts, which is a good thing because that means less sticking.
