Cost Average budget
Mix all ingredients together except chicken or pork.
Wash chicken pat dry and put in air tight container (zip lock baggie) and pour in marinade. I let mine marinade at least 24 hours the longer the better your flavoring.
Soak bamboo skewers for 3 hours prior to cooking meat.
About 30 minutes before doing next step start your grill getting it hot and ready.
Remove meat from marinade (reserving the marinade), put half of marinade in a saucepan pan on medium heat allowing it to reduce, while it is reducing put meat on skewers. Put skewered meats in marinade that was NOT reduced.
Grill meat turning frequently, once meat is cooked use the reduction marinade to baste the grilled meats.
This can be served as is or with rice, potatoes or salad.
