Easy chicken and vegetable kabobs are made much tastier with bacon!
We all know that sometimes the simplest dinners are the best, right?
Clearly, that’s the case with these chicken kabobs. They’re so simple, but so delicious. With just 7 ingredients and minimal prep time, you can have these kabobs on the dinner table in less than 40 minutes.
And of course, the best part is simply how delicious these kabobs are. I mean, bacon-wrapped chicken. Grilled veggies. Grilled pineapple. Am I right?!
Yeah, that’s what I like to call a winning combo. Plus, with the weather heating up and temps in our homes rising, the grill is often our best option.
Grilling has other benefits, too. Excess fats drip off, vegetables retain more vitamins and minerals, meats retain more of the key vitamins of riboflavin and thiamine, and moisture is sealed in better, keeping food tender.
Okay, so here’s how you make them.
Line up those fresh ingredients. Mmm! Then preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
Add the chicken to a bowl and toss with two tablespoons of barbeque sauce.
Wrap each piece of chicken with half a slice of bacon. Thread the bacon-wrapped chicken onto the skewers, alternating with red peppers, green peppers, red onions and pineapple cubes.
Ready for the grill! They’re gorgeous already.
Once you’ve made all the skewers, place them on the hot grill. Grill the skewers until the bacon has browned and crisped and the chicken has cooked through, 3-4 minutes per side.
During the last minute of cooking, brush each skewer with barbeque sauce all over.
Remove from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes, then serve immediately with a side of fresh barbecue sauce.
Now we’re talkin’ summer!
