These breaded chicken skewers are one of my favorite dishes to serve to guests. They can be prepped and lightly browned in advance. I like to wait until my guests arrive, then quickly finish them in the oven. Generally when having guests over for dinner, the oven becomes my best friend. I use chicken thighs in this recipe because they tend to have more flavor and aren’t as dry.
