2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1½ inch pieces
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tbsp fresh lemon juce
½ tsp dried Italian herbs
¼ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 cup ketchup
1 cup Cola
¼ cup brown sugar
2 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp minced garlic
½ tsp hot sauce, such as Frank’s Red Hot
1 tbsp butter
Place chicken in a shallow dish and toss with olive oil, white wine vinegar, lemon juice, Italian herbs, salt and pepper. Let chicken marinate while preparing the barbeque sauce.
For the barbecue sauce, in a medium saucepan, combine ketchup, cola, brown sugar, cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, garlic and hot sauce. Whisk until well combined. Bring to a boil over medium heat, turn to low and let gently simmer for 20 minutes. Rem
Preheat a lightly oiled grill to medium-high heat and thread chicken pieces onto skewers. Discard any remaining marinade. Grill skewers for 10 to 15 minutes, turning after 8 minutes, until juices run clear and chicken is cooked through.
Baste with barbeque sauce in the last 5 minutes of cooking. Serve skewers with remaining barbeque sauce.
