In a small saucepan combine all ingredients listed under BBQ sauce. Whisk them well with a wire whisk.
Place the saucepan on low heat and let the sauce cook slowly for 8 to 10 minutes until the sugar is dissolved completely and sauce thickens.
Transfer the prepared sauce to another bowl and let it cool.
Skewer the marinated chicken into soaked bamboo sticks.
Heat a cast iron grill pan over high heat. Once the pan is super hot, brush it with olive oil.
Place the chicken skewers on hot grill pan and girll for 8 mins. Flip them over and let other side grill for 8 minutes too.
While other side is grilled, brush the top with thick coating of prepared BBQ sauce.
Flip the skewers again and let the saucy side grill for 8 more mintes.
Brush the top side with another thick layer of BBQ sauce and after 8 minutes, flip the skewers again to let them grill for final 8 minutes.
Once the chicken cubes are nicely charred on the edges, your BBQ chicken skewers are ready to serve!
