Grilled Pesto Chicken Kabobs

Pesto can sometimes be overpowering, but not in this recipe! Using it in a marinade adds the wonderful flavors of basil and garlic, without taking away from the natural flavors of the chicken and vegetables.

Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Skewers with Miso Ranch

Rating: Unrated

If ‘teri' means ‘shine,' and ‘yaki' refers to grilling, then these chicken skewers are the poster children for teriyaki. Marinated in soy sauce, sake, and mirin, the chicken is grilled to sweet, smoky perfection and dipped in a refreshing, herby miso ‘ranch' sauce that'll send your summer cookout guests into a frenzy. The only bottles not invited to this party are bottled teriyaki sauces! Garnish with sesame seeds if desired.

The flavors of summer come alive in these colorful grilled kebabs, complete with a kick of heat from the Sriracha and sweetness from honey. If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes prior to using to prevent burning. Serve over rice and garnish with lime zest if desired.

Slayer's Sweet, Tangy, and Spicy Kabobs

I acquired both my nickname and the idea for this recipe while working at an awful franchised restaurant in my college years. These are great for Summertime cookouts at tailgate partys or just for get-togethers. The sauce is fairly versatile and can be used for an array of different meats and applications (I originally used the sauce for chicken wings). For people such as myself who have acid reflux I have indicated some ingredients that can be left out in order to help curb the heartburn.

This is perfect for kabobs! We generally use chicken or pork and it is great with onions, zucchini, and portobello mushrooms! You'll wow your crowd with this one! This is enough marinade for 2 pounds of meat and the veggies.

Honey chicken kabobs with veggies. You can marinate overnight and make these kabobs for an outdoor barbecue as a tasty alternative to the usual barbecue fare! Fresh mushrooms and cherry tomatoes can also be used. (This can also be done in the broiler.)
