  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or combination of cheese mix
  • 1 ½ cups cooked and shredded chicken

Hawaiian Chicken Kebabs

Marinade

  • ½ cup  barbecue sauce
  • cup  soy sauce
  • cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha or hot sauce of your choice
  • 2 teaspoon  sesame oil
  • 2  cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
