  1. First, soak your wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes to prevent them from burning on the grill.
  2. While the skewers are soaking, cut your chicken breast and vegetables into 1-inch pieces. This size is ideal for ensuring everything cooks evenly.
  3. Next, thread the chicken and vegetables onto the skewers. Try to alternate between meat and vegetables for a colorful and balanced skewer.
  4. Drizzle your skewers with a generous amount of olive oil. This will help prevent sticking and add flavor. Season your skewers with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Preheat your backpacking grill. This can take anywhere from 5-10 minutes depending on your grill. You want it to be nice and hot before you add your skewers.
  6. Finally, grill your skewers for 15-20 minutes, turning occasionally. You want to ensure that the chicken is fully cooked through. If you're unsure, the safest way is to use a meat thermometer. Chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F.
