Grilled BBQ Bacon Chicken Kabobs

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

We do a lot of grilling in the summer  months. For obvious reasons. Quick, easy meals that do not heat up the house. This particular chicken recipe was a huge hit with my husband and my boys. There was not a single piece left and they all said I can make this again and soon. My husband wants to try to rub on pork next time he uses his smoker. All you do is make the rub in a food processor and coat the chicken , thread them on skewers and grill. The fat from the bacon in the rub keeps it moist. Seriously good ! I was going to baste the chicken with bbq sauce at the end of the cooking time, but one of my kids would not eat it with the sauce , so I decided to serve the sauce on the side, for dipping.  I used Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. For the bacon. I used the prepackaged ready made bacon .  It is already cooked and it makes the rub perfect!  These would be good as appetizers too. Yum!
