Grab the Skewers

Make Skewers

Don't leave your guests fighting a grilled chicken breast with a plastic knife and paper plate. Make skewers for mess-free fare. Plus, cutting the meat and veggies into smaller chunks helps it all cook faster and evenly. And who doesn't love a presentation that looks chic without the effort?
