STEP 2: Blend well for 5-10 seconds, then slow your blender down and drizzle in more lemon juice and olive oil alternatively until you hear the blender sound shift a bit (it’s subtle!). The consistency will then change into mayo-like consistency. If it doesn’t work, don’t worry – the sauce won’t look amazing, but it’ll still taste good!

STEP 3: Keep half the garlic sauce to serve with. Take the other half of the garlic sauce and add in the additional 1/2 cup of olive oil and teaspoon of salt. Mix well – this makes the marinade.

bottom for a few minutes to get the charred look and then move the skewers to a top rack with the lid down to cook the chicken well).
