Backyard Entertaining


So what does one serve besides burgers at your next backyard gathering?  I have two great options for you to add some flare to your next party:  bacon wrapped chicken kebobs and ranch chicken kebobs.
For bacon wrapped chicken, cut chicken into cubes and bacon strip in half.  Mix 1 1/2 c brown sugar, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp smoked paprika, and 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper.  Sprinkle on chicken.  Wet skewers.  Wrap bacon around chicken cube and place on skewer.  Put five cubes on one skewer.  Grill on medium heat on top rack of bbq for 8-12 minutes.
For ranch chicken kebobs, mix 1/2 c olive oil, 1/2 c ranch dressing, 3T worchestire, 2 t salt, 1t lemon juice, 1t vinegar, 1/4t pepper, 1T sugar.  Pour over cubed chicken and marinate for 1 hr.  Place on skewers and grill on medium for 8-12 minutes.  Enjoy!
