Can anyone tell me where summer went?
How in the world is it already mid-August!!!! I feel like I blinked and we jumped from April to August in a flash! I am attempting to soak up as much of summer as I can before the weather turns and we are all bundled up in jackets and boots.
Though I have to say I am a bit worried that winter will be here sooner versus later. There seems to be a lot more geese flying overhead and the leaves are changing already. EEEK So not ready!
Ok, back to the real point of today’s post….these amazing Sweet and Spicy Chicken Skewers!
This recipe is perfect for end of summer barbecues and family dinners. So easy to make and they look amazing!
Are you ready to fire up the barbecue and enjoy the last bits of summer?
Sweet and Spicy Chicken Skewers
1 – 1.5 lb Chicken Tenderloins
2 Green Peppers
1 Fresh Pineapple
(Chopped Parsley for Garnish, optional)
Approximately 12 Skewers
Spice Rub Ingredients
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Red Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 Clove Garlic, minced
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
Soak your skewers in water so that they don’t burn on the grill
Cut the chicken tenderloins into 3 or 4 pieces each (depending on tenderloin size). Toss chicken in the spice rub until all pieces are coated evenly. Let sit while you cut up your green peppers and pineapple.
Thread your ingredients onto the skewers, leaving about an inch of wood exposed on each end
Grill until chicken is cooked through.
