This recipe is healthier than shop bought marinated chicken. You can vary the herbs and add spice if you prefer a spicier version. They are carb free and contain no additives, so they a great choice for lunch  with salad or dinner with vegetables. They are also great cold.

12-16 wooden or metal skewers (wooden skewers must be soaked in water for at least a couple of hours, to prevent them catching fire on the BBQ or grill. A short soak isn’t enough).
