 5. Remove skewers from pan and repeat until all chicken has been cooked. 
*It is best to wipe out some of the barbeque sauce from the pan before repeating so cleaning is easier when you finish. Add 3 more tablespoons of vegetable oil between cleaning and cooking.

6. Allow to cool a bit. Serve with our delicious No-Mayo Potato Salad this Labor Day!
