Nutritional values

These skewers provide plenty of good fatty acids, essential amino acids, your full daily requirement of niacin, and vitamin B, which supports metabolism and skin health. 

Use organic chicken breast fillet if you can. The proportion of muscle meat is much higher than that of conventional chicken, which contains significantly more water and thus less flavor.
