Honey Chicken Kabobs
(adapted from Mom Advice)
We have made these kabobs twice this month already and love them. They are so easy to make. You marinate the meat and veggies a few hours before dinner so all you have to do when dinner time arrives is assemble the skewers and put on the grill. They are so tender and juicy - just delicious. I don't even bother to reserve marinade and baste. I have made them with onions, peppers, and mushrooms and with onions and pineapple. Delicious either way. I did not marinate the pineapple. I just used it straight from the can. Serve with rice or a salad and you have a wonderful Spring meal. My 3 year old loves this! My husband says it reminds him of bourban chicken from the mall, only better because it is less greasy.
1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic minced
8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into 1 inch cubes (I use 3 or 4 since we are a small family and this makes 7-8 kabobs for us)
An assortment of vegetables: (pick and choose)
5 small onions, cut into 2 inch pieces or one large onion cut into chunks
fresh whole mushrooms
red bell peppers, cut into 2 inch pieces
canned or fresh pineapple chunks
or any of your favorite vegetables
Metal or bamboo skewers (If using bamboo, soak them in water for a couple of hours before assembling.)
In a large bowl, whisk together oil, honey, soy sauce, pepper, and garlic. Before adding chicken, reserve a small amount of marinade to brush onto kabobs while cooking. Place the chicken and vegetables in the bowl and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours (the longer the better). Preheat the grill for high heat. Drain marinade from the chicken and vegetables, and discard marinade. Thread chicken and vegetables alternately onto the skewers. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the skewers on the grill. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, until chicken juices run clear. Turn and brush with reserved marinade frequently.
