"G" is for "Grilled Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs"

Let me guess, I had you at bacon??

As the temps of summer rise, I spend even more time grilling outside (though I do grill year round, even in the snow!) Not long ago when on a camping trip with my brother & sister-in-law, they made some yummy kabobs over the fire (oh yeah, did I mention even though they are amazing on the grill, they are out of this world over a campfire?!)

I made a few tweaks to the original recipe and this is what I came up with. Enjoy!

Grilled Chicken & Bacon Shish Kabobs
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
3 Tbsp honey
3 Tbsp olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp ground ginger
About 10 large mushrooms cut into chunks
1 purple onion (or any kind will do)
1 pepper (any color you like)
about 2lbs of boneless skinless chicken breast cut into chunks
1 lb of bacon cut (each slice cut into 1/4, easiest way is to slice the whole package at once)
1 can of pineapple chunks (you may need to cut the chunks in half depending on size)

In a large bowl, add the soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, honey, olive oil, minced garlic & ginger. Add the diced chicken, mushrooms, onion & pepper to the marinade. Toss well and refrigerate at least an hour (longer is better though, go for all day if you can!)

To assemble your skewers, have the bacon sliced & ready to go as well as the pineapple chunks. (if you are using wood skewers, make sure you soak the skewers for 30 minutes first). Wrap the chicken chunks with bacon and secure on skewer. Alternate with the mushrooms, onions, pepper & pineapple. Grill 15-20 minutes or until the chicken & bacon are cooked.

If you are wondering what is the green stuff in the picture above, I made grilled asparagus. Toss the asparagus with olive oil then sprinkle with garlic salt & pepper. Grill until done to your likeness. You could even sprinkle parmesan cheese on the asparagus when done.

  2. Sounds delicious. I bet wrapping the chicken in bacon keeps the chicken moist as the bacon cooks. What size chunks does the chicken need to be in order for the bacon and chicken to cook at the same rate?

    1. I did small chunks, like 1 inch size just to keep things easy to grill!


I enjoy hearing from each & every one of you! Thanks for taking the time to comment. :)
