Chicken Shish-Kabob

Chicken Shish-Kabob
Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Yeast-Free, Corn-Free, Soy-Free**, Peanut-Free

Tired of burgers? Shish-Kabobs are a great alternative. Let each dinner guest prepare their own kabobs, then they get exactly what they want! Even kids like to make their own.

2 boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch chunks (approx.)
8 baby potatoes, skin on
1/2 green pepper, cut into large chunks
1/2 yellow pepper, cut into large chunks
1/2 red pepper, cut into large chunks
8 grape tomatoes
(add or substitute any other veggies or fruit you like that can be barbecued)
3 tbsp olive oil
Sea Salt and Freshly ground pepper

**Optional marinade: 1/4 cup soy sauce, gluten free
1/4 cup water

Before the barbecue, gather 8-10 skewers. If you are using wooden skewers, submerge them in water for at least an hour to prevent them from burning on the barbecue. If you wish to marinate the chicken before barbecuing it, place the chicken in a bowl and add the soy sauce and water. Cover and let stand in the refrigerator for one hour.

Boil the baby potatoes until they are tender (they give when you squeeze them) before the barbecue. This can even be done the day before. Allow them to cool .

In the meantime, prepare all the vegetables (and/or fruit) for skewering. On a small plate or in a tiny bowl, mix the olive oil with some sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Arrange all the items to skewer to make it easy for the dinner guests to reach them.

When the chicken is ready, invite the dinner guests to wash their hands, then grab 2 skewers and pierce and slide onto the skewers the items of their choice. Remind your guests to take note of what they put on their skewers so they will get the right one back after they are cooked! When they are finished their creations, using a basting brush, lightly brush on the oil and seasonings mixture. This is very important to prevent the chicken from sticking to the grill. Cook the kabobs about 12-15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.

Serve with rice or a salad.
