Cook's Tip

For best results, soak bamboo skewers in water for about 30 minutes before using to make them more pliable and to prevent them from burning.

To Grill:

Replace Step 4. Spray grid with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Thread chicken strips onto 16 (8-inch) bamboo skewers. Place skewers onto grill and cook 5 to 6 minutes, turning halfway through. Be certain the chicken is cooked through; internal temperature should be 170°F.
