Summer is the time for picnics and family reunions. It’s a time for spending an afternoon splashing around in the swimming pool with the children, and finally ending the day with a game of ultimate Frisbee in the park with some friends and neighbors. However, no matter what your other Summer time activities, the day is always made better if you include a BBQ on the menu!
This recipe for Quick and Easy BBQ Chicken Skewers is truly quick and very easy to prepare. It will go from preparation to your plate in about an hour -- maybe even less -- so those who’ve been busy working up an appetite won’t have to wait very long until dinner is served.
For my skewers, I use boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or thighs that have been cut into cubes). Next, I stir in a few simple ingredients and allow the chicken to soak up some of that flavor for about 30 minutes while it's marinating in the refrigerator. The big difference between these skewers and most others is that I add chunks of thick cut bacon to mine. Grilling the skewers at a lower temperature will keep the bacon drippings from flaring up. Believe me, this will take your BBQ chicken to a completely higher level!
