Honey Soy Grilled Chicken Kabobs

Summer is winding down so quickly, I just can’t believe it.  In an effort to squeeze out the last few months of outdoor grilling, I tested out these honey and soy marinated chicken kabobs.

I was worried that the soy sauce would make these terribly salty but I was so glad that it did not.  The sweetness of the honey cuts it nicely and in fact you couldn’t even taste the salt.  The chicken kabobs just have a nice sweet flavor.

We loved this recipe!  It’s nice and simple but letting the chicken soak in the marinade gives it lots of great flavor.  I’ll definitely make these kabobs again!

Bacon Barbecued Chicken Kebabs

Looking at these grilled chicken kebabs you’d never guess that bacon comes into play.  But since I had practically a whole package of bacon left from the grilled cheese and bacon potatoes, I decided to try this unique chicken kebab recipe.  And actually the way you prepare the bacon was quite weird to me.

I’ve never heard of making a paste with bacon before but what the heck, I thought I’d give it a try.  Once you make the bacon and spice paste, you rub it onto the raw chicken kebabs before grilling.  Then as you grill, baste the chicken kebabs with the homemade barbecue sauce.

These are some really good grilled chicken kebabs.  The bacon and the smoked paprika give them a great smokey flavor while the barbecue sauce gives them some zippy tang.

This recipe does take a good amount of prep work but you’ll find the taste is well worth it.  Next time I make them, I may skip the kebab prep portion and just use whole chicken breasts.

Taco Bell’s Spicy Quesadilla Sauce

Hubs and I are huge fans of Taco Bell’s chicken quesadilla.  We don’t have a Taco Bell very close to us so we rarely get to have it.  I’ve been making our own homemade quesadillas for a few years now but we always thought they needed something extra.  The sauce on Taco Bell’s quesadillas definitely is what makes them great.

I’ve always wondered how I could recreate the sauce at home.  I tried a few different variations on my own with no success.  I recently came across a recipe specifically for Taco Bell’s sauce.  So of course I had to try it!  I just had to keep that mayo was in it under my hat from the hubster.  He won’t touch anything with mayo so I’ve gotta hide it from him!

I’ve gotta say this is pretty dead on.  I think I put too many jalapenos in ours cause it had some extra kick.  But the melted cheese mellowed it out nicely.

Tangy BBQ Shredded Chicken Pitas

Ever since I started making my own homemade barbecue sauce I’ve become kinda obsessed.  I’ve made it my mission to try every different barbecue sauce recipe that I come across.  And I am so glad I came across this bbq recipe.

This bbq sauce is by far the most delicious I have ever had.  It is better than all my previous barbecue sauce recipes and any bottled version I’ve ever bought.  It is so good I swear I could slather it on just about anything and it would be edible.  Just thinking about it is making my mouth water.

I love this bbq sauce so much because of its intense flavors.  It’s like a flavor party in your mouth.  A little sweet, a bit spicy and so very tangy.  If you’re looking for something bland and boring, then this is not for you.

Crockpot Salsa Chicken

Holy moly, it’s been so long since I blogged here!  I’ve been so busy lately and I haven’t really been trying new recipes to share with you.  I do have a few now though, so I apologize if you keep coming here and seeing nothing new.

Today’s new recipe: salsa chicken.  A moist and creamy shredded chicken recipe that’s super simple.  Just drop a few ingredients into the crockpot and poof, you’ve got a great mixture to put on top of just about anything.

We ate our salsa chicken on top of some brown rice, but you could easily top baked potatoes instead.  I also think it would be great to make shredded chicken nachos with any leftovers you have.
