This little recipe is perfect for the coming warmer months and great for a crowd. You can assemble the skewers ahead of time then baste on the sauce while they’re cooking. Just whip up a couple of side dishes and you’re good to go! I love recipes like this because not only is it different but pretty easy. Add the veggies of your choice but you can never go wrong with peppers and onions! And the sauce? You might want to double that so you have extra for drizzling over the cooked skewers.
Honey Chipotle Chicken Skewers
3 chicken breasts ~ cut into chunks
1 red bell pepper ~ cut into chunks
1 green bell pepper ~ cut into chunks
1/2 red onion ~ cut into chunks
Bamboo skewers that have been soaked in water
For the sauce:
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 1/2 tablespoons chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Pinch ground pepper, or to taste
Combine the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl. Divide into two bowls, using one bowl for basting and reserve one in case you want some sauce drizzled over the finished skewers. You don’t want to use the sauce you used for basting the raw chicken on your cooked food.
Assemble skewers, alternating the meat and veggies until all ingredients are used.
Heat your grill or a grill pan over medium heat.
Baste skewers with sauce and cooked until chicken is done.
Drizzle reserved sauce over skewers and serve.
