Step 8

In another bowl, mix together the remaining salt, the pepper, the garlic powder, and the paprika until combined.

Step 9

Sprinkle the seasoning mixture evenly all over the chicken.

Step 10

Skewer the chicken.

Step 11

When the grill is hot, put the chicken on the grill.

Cook the chicken for 10 to 14 minutes, turning once halfway through, until golden brown and cooked through.

Step 13

Move the skewers to a plate, and tent with foil loosely.

Step 14

Allow the chicken to rest for at least 5-10 minutes.

Step 15

Serve the dish warm while the chicken is hot and juicy, drizzled with freshly-squeezed lemon juice if desired.
