  1. Slice the chicken into cubes and place in a large mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, the red wine vinegar, kosher salt, paprika, garlic powder, and olive oil to the chicken. Mix well and allow to marinate in the refrigerator, at least 1 hour.  If using wooden skewers, soak them in water while the chicken marinates.
  2. Thread the marinated chicken onto the skewers (I use 2 skewers to prevent sliding). 
  3. Preheat the grill over medium-high heat. Grill the chicken skewers for about about 5 minutes per side, until cooked through. Brush the chicken with the remaining 1/2 cup of barbecue sauce during the last minute or two of cooking. 
  4. Serve and enjoy!
