Grilled Chicken Caesar on a Skewer

Avoid overcrowding the skewers by spacing chicken and onion wedges about 1/4 inch apart. It's best to cook bread cubes by themselves so the bread doesn't come in contact with raw chicken. Thread them onto two skewers, spacing them 1/2 inch apart, so they will toast evenly on all sides.

  • 1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 4 ounces country bread, crust trimmed and cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shaved fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
