This chicken is packed with flavor. It takes a little preparation the night before, but it is definitely worth it. I served it with brown rice and mixed veggies and it was a very satisfying meal. The serving size is about three ounces. I cooked it on skewers and divided them up so that there would be about 1.5 oz per skewer. However you want to do this is fine.
