n a bowl combine chicken chunks, oil, salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
Thread chicken on skewers, not to tightly you want even cooking.
In a medium saucepan, combine sauce ingredients and bring to a boil. Cook until reduced by half - stirring occasionally.
Grill skewers over direct high heat - lid closed as much as possible - turning when the first side is nicely charred and swapping positions as needed for even cooking.
Begin basting and turning the skewers until fully cooked.
