I love Kebobs. I literally emptied out the refrigerator last night for dinner. I had some chicken breast, pineapple, onions, peppers and zucchini, threaded the on the skewers brushed them with the most amazing barbecue sauce, grilled the and I cleaned the refrigerator and got dinner all at the same time! That’s winner, winner chicken dinner! Best part, picky eaters welcomed, cause they can make up what they will eat, except my husband, cause he’d only pick meat! My daughter doesn’t like grill zucchini, leave it off, the hubs won’t eat grill tomatoes, leave them off, I eat it all, so bring it on!
Spring is starting to arrive, the top picture is my new back door bestie and the second one is the peeping tome hummingbird! It’s looks into the living room all the time, I really think it’s asking to come in, cause it’s not that warm just yet!
To make the skewers, I cut up and marinaded chicken at lunch time, had my veggies cut up so after work I just assembled and grilled.
Sunday I made the best barbecue sauce, I took some Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce, added pineapple juice & Adobo sauce, which is the sauce that comes with Chipotle chilies. It’s sweet and spicy and smoky and just plain good. It was good brushed on the skewers and it was also good on a turkey burger I had with homemade french fries
So good, if you don’t try the skewers try the sauce anyway!
1 1/2 lbs. boneless chicken breast, cut into chunks
juice of 2 limes
3 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
4 green onions, roughly chopped
salt & pepper
Add everything to a zip top bag and let it marinate for 4 to 6 hours
Veggies of your choice chopped into bite size pieces
Onions, Zucchini, Asparagus, Peppers, Egg Plant, Pineapple, tomatoes or Squash would all work well
1 large onion
1 large zucchini
1 cup of Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce
1/4 cup unsweetened pineapple juice ( I used the juice that came out of a can of pineapple)
2 to 3 TBSP of Adobo sauce ( add 1 to 2 taste and see if it’s hot enough
In a small sauce pan, add all sauce ingredients, bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes. This can be made ahead and stored in the frig.
Thread chicken and veggies on soaked skewers and drizzle everything with olive oil, salt & pepper.
On a grill heated to medium grill for three to five minutes on each side, brushing with the sauce., When chicken is done and veggies are tender crisp, serve with additional sauce and rice.
