Mike's Two Way Grilled Chicken Skewers

As you can probably tell – I seriously over ordered on skinless chicken breasts this month. With that, my students were forced to get really creative with them. All in all, they ended up cooking, baking or grilling 16 pounds of chicken. While all of their recipes were excellent, I enjoyed these two the most for flavor, simplicity and absolute ease. Great work, photos and documentation kiddos! Delicious! Oh, and Joseph? Do thank your parents again for not suing me for your hellatious lower arm grill burn. Or, as we like to call em here, Chefs Badges! 😆♨😆
