Chicken, Bacon & Mushroom Kebabs

Skewering things and cooking them is one of my favorite ways to make dinner.

It’s easy to put together and takes no time to cook. The best kebabs always have a protein (I’ve made fish, turkey, pork and chicken before) and plenty of veggies that go together. I like to skewer zucchini and onions; those two things are typically on my kebabs.

I found this recipe in a 1970’s Texas cookbook (same as the LBJ barbecue chicken recipe) and went to work on a new type of kebab. The recipe didn’t call for a marinade or any seasonings, so I just seasoned the chicken simply with paprika, cayenne, salt, pepper and garlic powder. I wasn’t feeling like whipping out my grill pan so I used a wire rack on a baking sheet instead. A pop in the oven & many bastings with the bacon grease later…and I had some darn good kebabs.

I dipped my kebabs in ranch, because I am an Okie after all. Everything is better with ranch. These would also taste good dipped into a barbecue sauce or just a bowl or Worcestershire. Ranch is my go-to, though.

The bacon didn’t get real crispy here, but I am a fan of floppy bacon. Pro-tip: if you want your bacon crispy, pan-fry it for a few minutes and let cool before wrapping it around the chicken to bake. You should have crispy bacon in no time.

Enjoy!
