Transfer the chicken skewers to a baking tray and put it in the oven for 8-10 min, or until the chicken is cooked through

6 Baharat-Spiced Chicken Skewers

Meanwhile, whisk together the honey, apple cider vinegar and 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] olive oil in a small bowl – this is your dressing 

Chop the dill roughly, including the stalks
