Chicken Skewers

Got this idea from Oompappy! I marinaded chicken strips in Caribbean Jerk and Ginger Teriyaki KC Masterpiece Marinades and skewered with bacon. Basically use whatever marinade you like, skewer the meat and grill till done. Let me tell you, these things are fantastic and super easy to make! Thank you Oompappy for the idea!! Great job! My daughter is graduating in two weeks and just requested these to go along with daddys pulled pork!

so no preference on the sauce? When I did them last week, I used a sauce that didn't get in the chicken well....I've done em twice, and the second time I got chicken tenders....they didn't absorb the flavor like I wanted, but I was short on time and didn't get to let sit in the sauce as long I wanted.

Next time I'm going to marinade in Italian, grill and then baste with sauce...sounds like a good idea.

Capt, I did mine last week with the same marinade as you and they were fantastic! I love that Goyo Mojo juice. I'm doing chicken thighs tomorrow in it. I usually marinade 4 - 5 hours and its a great taste.

Cappy, both sauces turned out great. But my family liked the Ginger Teriyaki sauce over the Caribbean Jerk a bit better. The jerk sauce was not spicy whatsoever, but still good. I used boneless chicken breast, that I sliced into strips.

Nice work Larry! I'm glad you liked them.
I use Krista's jerk sauce. It is quite spicy even though the web site
say's it's "toned down".

http://www.jerksauce.com/

I have an "inside" connection who brings me a gallon every April.
The gallons have about 4" of herb and spice sediment in the bottom
so you really have to shake it up.
I've never had it in the small bottles but I imagine they would have the sediment.

In your pics it looks like you've got the bacon just on one side?
What I like to do is weave or kind of braid the chicken with the bacon
to get the meats exposed on all sides. I think this shows up best in the
lower right corner of this pic...

Thank's
Just for a half hour or so. The chick chunks for 3 hours. After I set up the skewers, I put hem back in the marinade as I got the grill started.

Took this in another direction...used thin sliced "sandwich" steaks which I marinated in a jerk marinade. Its just the local grocery store brand. Ribboned them with the bacon/skeweres and grilled them. After a little experimenting found that by just cooking them bacon side down, the meat was juicy and flavorful. It seemed flipping them over dumped all the "juice" and made them a little dry. We did this camping, so I couldn't smoke them, but will try that next week.
