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.
