Remove the marinated chicken from fridge. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare baking tray by coating with cooking spray or covering in parchment. Take 1 skewer and add 3-4 pieces of marinated chicken (leaving some space in the top & bottom of skewer). Repeat until all chicken is skewered placing them on prepared baking sheet.  Bake skewers for 15 minutes, flip and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

Serve Hot with thinly sliced onions and lemon wedges.
