  • In a bowl, mix all ingredients together <em>(except for garlic sauce) </em>then thoroughly combine with the chicken
  • Place chicken and marinade into a container, cover, and let marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours
  • Skewer the chicken pieces just before grilling
  • Grill on medium heat for 12-18 minutes<em> (maximum, do not overcook)</em>
