- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1 tbsp olive oil

- 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
- ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
- 2 tbsp soy sauce

- Brush the chicken breasts with olive oil, squeeze lemon over chicken and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill 10 minutes on both sides until done and juices run clear. Cut into ½ inch strips and skewer with wooden sticks.
