2 pounds boneless/skinless chicken thighs or breast meat
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 cloves garlic, mince
3/4 bunch fresh cilantro (save remaining for garnish)
1 teaspoon salt & pepper
Sweet chili sauce for basting (homemade or store bought)
Soak skewers in water for at least 20 minutes to prevent burning.
Cut chicken into 1" cubes and place into bowl. Add olive oil, garlic and cilantro in a 
food processor and
pulverize. Pour the marinade into the bowl with the chicken, add teaspoon of salt and 
pepper and
marinate over night if possible.
Preheat the grill to medium heat and coat with oil. Remove chicken from the 
refrigerator and put 5-6
pieces of chicken on each skewer. Cook for 4-5 minutes on each side. Brush chili sauce 
on chicken just
before done cooking to create a nice glaze.
