RECIPE: EASY CHICKEN & BACON SKEWERS

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

INGREDIENTS:
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons canola oil
10 large mushrooms, cut in half
2 green onions, minced
3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into chunks
1/2 pound sliced thick cut bacon, cut in half
1 (8 ounce) can pineapple chunks

DIRECTIONS:
In a large bowl, mix the soy sauce, cider vinegar, honey,
and canola oil. Stir in the mushrooms and green onions.
Place the chicken in the mixture. Cover, and marinate in
the refrigerator at least 1 hour. Preheat an outdoor grill
for high heat, and lightly oil grate. Wrap the chicken
chunks with bacon, thread onto skewers. Alternate with
mushroom halves and pineapple chunks. Arrange skewers on
the prepared grill. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, brushing
occasionally with remaining soy sauce mixture, until bacon
is crisp and chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

HELPFUL SHISH KABOB TIPS & HINTS:

* Wooden bamboo skewers are inexpensive and easy to find,
but they must be soaked at least 30 minutes in water
(preferably warm to the touch) prior to use. This keeps
them from easily catching fire. If you get into the
shish kebab habit, then you may wish to invest in
stainless steel reusable skewers.

* Wash all meats and seafood thoroughly and pat dry before
skewering and adding to marinade.

* Meats should optimally be cut in uniformly-sized 1 to
2-inch cubes for quick and even cooking.

* Parboil vegetables such as bell peppers, zucchini,
carrots and other dense foods before skewering if you
like them fully-cooked in the end product. Baby new
potatoes can be scrubbed and par-boiled in skins or use
canned whole potatoes.

* When using marinade, a large heavy-duty plastic zip or
cooking bag works great for prepared skewers. Be sure
to get most of the air out before sealing so the
contents are covered with the marinade, and turn the
bag often while marinating.

Alternate meat with vegetables and fruit on the
skewers. Be creative.

A light spray of cooking oil will help keep the kebabs
from sticking, as you need turn the kebabs often for
even cooking.
