I recently visited my parents in Kentucky and we made the most fabulous chicken kabob. It was a hit and I will make it again.
Chicken Kabob on the grill
2 – 3 lbs cubed chicken breasts
1 Yellow Pepper (cubed)
1 Red Pepper (cubed)
1 Green Pepper (cubed)
1 Medium Onion (cubed)
1 package large Mushrooms (cleaned and dried)
1 package Cherry Tomatoes
Wooden Skews (soak in water for 20 minutes prior to using)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Place 1/2 the chicken in freezer bag with Italian Dressing and the other 1/2 in a freezer bag with Teriyaki Marinade and let marinade for 24 hours. Once grill is ready, put meat and vegetables on skews alternating until all is used except the cherry tomatoes. Cook until chicken is no longer pink. Put cherry tomatoes on skew and grill for the last 5 minutes of the chicken cooking. Season all with salt and pepper to taste. We served with Texas Toast and a side of Sangria. You can use any vegetable you like that taste well with chicken.
It’s a cold, rainy day here in De Pere, Wisconsin so I thought I would share a quick and easy rainy day comfort food recipe with you. Hope you enjoy it. Had this dish (although they made it from scratch) at a local restaurant and it was fabulous.
Pulled Pork BBQ & Gnocchi
1 package Jim Beam pulled pork (found in most stores in the meat section-see picture below)
NOTE: You could make a boneless pork roast in the crock pot and flavor with Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ and it will have the same affect.
1 package Gnocchi (see picture below, you can use any brand)
Note: Dried gnocchi are found in the pasta aisle at the supermarket. Do not use fresh or refrigerated gnocchi, or they will become too soft during cooking.
Heat pulled pork per the directions on the package.
Heat gnocchi per the directions on the package
Combine 1 & 2 into a casserole dish. Stir to completely cover gnocchi with BBQ sauce.
In a bowl, combine all ingredients except dogs and buns. Cut a 1/2″ deep lengthwise slit in each hot dog. Spoon 2 tablespoons of mixture into each hot dog. Broil in oven for 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve on buns.
