‘People Go Crazy for Them,’ says Ina Garten of her Easy Chicken Skewers Appetizer.
Ina Garten’s chicken skewers are an easy Barefoot Contessa appetizer that everyone will love.

They even gained notoriety at her Barefoot Contessa shop.
Garten swears by them, and they’re always a hit when they appear on the menu.
