Grilling Time! I have put my Mother’s Day present to great use. I have grilled everyday and I just love it! I decided that I wanted to grill some Kabobs today. I just bought some new Applewood Smoked Salt and it smells delicious. If you have never used smoked salt, it’s a must for those of us who are serious about grilling.
This recipe is so simple. Cut up your chicken breast into large chunks. I cut the chicken breast in half and then cut it into chunks about 1-2 inches. Chop the bell peppers and place everything in a bowl.
Season with the Applewood Smoked Salt, creole seasoning, garlic and onion powder and a little black pepper. Toss all this with a little extra virgin olive oil and that’s it. Don’t forget to soak your bamboo skewers for at least a few hours, if not, be prepared for them to catch a fire on the grill, #dangerous!
I lightly greased my grill with a little olive oil to help prevent the kabobs from sticking. You can make these skewers in advance and marinate overnight if you choose. I couldn’t wait so I went straight to the grill.
Grill the kabobs for about 12-15 minutes. You can baste with a little barbeque sauce while cooking but not too much because, it can cause the chicken to burn.
For those of you wondering, those hotlinks in the back of the grill is all Big Goo. I said chicken, he said Pork…lol!
