Barbara's Notes + Tips
If using wooden skewers, soak them in water first to prevent burning.
You can use this marinade for a full chicken breast, just increase the cooking time.
Let the chicken sit on the counter for 30 minutes before cooking for the best results.
If you don't have buttermilk, add a tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar to a cup of milk.
