Lemon Rosemary Chicken Skewers - Great for a Party or Buffet

“Originally from Bon Appetit Dec. 2000. Great for a party or buffet - easy to serve. I cut the chicken up into bite sized pieces so that people could simply pull the chicken off with a fork and didn't need to cut it. I served the chicken skewers on a platter with the marinade simply drizzled all over. (Would also recommend making w/out skewers and simply marinating chicken.)”
