Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"Tangy marinated chicken and mushrooms, wrapped in bacon and skewered. Excellent for entertaining and trying something new! These are a must-try! (They can also be broiled instead of grilled, if you're low on time.)"

  1. 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.
  2. Preheat grill for high heat.
  3. 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.
  4. Wrap the chicken chunks with bacon, and thread onto skewers so that the bacon is secured. Alternate with mushroom halves and pineapple chunks.
  5. 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.

This recipe tasted ok but needs so many modifications and takes so long to prepare that I'm afraid it only gets 2 stars. Here are the changes I'd definitely make before making this recipe again...

This is an awesome recipe. From reading other reviewers comments, I'd like to add that if you boil your bacon for about 5 minutes before you wrap your chicken, it cooks more evenly and won't bur...

excellent - I would recommend marinating it for 2 hours at least. I added boiler onions, cherry tomatoes and squash. The recipe says that it makes 6 servings- maybe with rice or a side dish ot...
