Expert Tips

The sweet marinade is made with brown sugar, soy sauce, sherry and seasoning. It tenderizes the meat and promotes browning as it cooks.

To broil chicken, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide.

Serve the kabobs on a bed of rice with a salad of tender leaf lettuce.
