Grilled Chicken Skewers
It’s grilling season! Have you noticed that we have been sharing more & more grilling recipes here? I’m pretty sure we have grilled 90% of our meals since the weather got nice. For a while there we had rain, like every single day for a couple weeks. I thought I was back at the apartment there was so much rain. No fun & I was sure missing the sunshine. But now that it’s back we are outside most of the time. I sure love it & I hope you have enjoyed all the summer dishes we have shared recently. This one today, Grilled Chicken Skewers is one of my favorites. I always love making my favorite carnival foods at home & these chicken skewers were a great way to kick off the season.
One of my favorite parts about grilling is that we can also dine outside. We bring all our fixings out to the picnic table & enjoy some amazing food, the hubs & I pour a glass of wine & we just feast. For this we chose Santa Rita 120 Hero’s Reserve Red Blend & Santa Rita 120 Sauvignon Blanc from Chile because one of the things he remembers most about the summer was his parents always having wine with whatever they had grilled.
It’s absolutely divine. Such a great way to enjoy the meal. Along with our usual seasonings, we added Badia Complete Seasoning, which made the chicken so incredibly flavorful.
- 4-5 lbs chicken breasts
- 2 tbsp of each of the following...
- Badia Complete Seasoning, salt, pepper, season salt & granulated garlic
- *Optional BBQ sauce for drizzling
- Preheat grill to high heat (400 degrees or so)
- Remove chicken from packaging & slice into thin strips
- Fold each strip in an accordion-like pattern & stick on a metal skewer
- Place on a baking sheet
- Combine seasonings in a small bowl & sprinkle liberally over all sides of chicken
- Once grill is hot, place chicken on & allow to sear 60 seconds on each side
- Turn down heat to medium & continue cooking until juices run clear (5-7 minutes each side)
- If you want to add sauce- either brush on after fully cooked or drizzle
These are incredible. I can’t wait to do this again all through the summer.
120 Hero’s Salute Red Blend is a deep, dark ruby-red color that features blueberry, plum and Cassis fruit aromas, along with spices and vanilla, coffee and tobacco notes from the barrel-aging. We cracked this one open for dessert. The palate has a sweet attack and evolution, with good volume, depth, and a fruity finish that leaves a refreshing mouthfeel. 120 Sauvignon Blanc has nuances of citrus fruit and white peach, supported by a zesty acidity and smooth texture that lingers on the palate. It does well with fish, but I really liked it with this chicken.
