Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs
Whether you’re hosting a family barbeque or a summer party with friends, finding the perfect dish to serve can be tricky. While this Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabob recipe from allrecipes.com is great for meat-lovers, the meats can be substituted with fruits and vegetables, making it a dish everyone will enjoy. Marinating the mushrooms and chicken in a combination of soy sauce, cider vinegar, honey and canola oil gives the shish kabobs a flavorful punch.
In a large bowl, mix the soy sauce, cider vinegar, honey, canola oil, and green onions. Place the mushrooms and chicken into the mixture and stir to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.
Preheat grill to high heat.
Remove the mushrooms and chicken from the marinade and shake off excess. Pour the marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes; set aside.
Wrap the chicken chunks with bacon, and thread onto skewers so that the bacon is secured. Alternate with mushroom halves and pineapple chunks.
Lightly oil the grill grate. Arrange skewers on the prepared grill. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, brushing occasionally with remaining soy sauce mixture, until bacon is crisp and chicken juices run clear.
