3 Chicken Breasts (cut into large chunks)
That right folks, only 3 ingredients! Told ya it was gonna be easy;)
Sweet chili sauce (optional if you want a little zing to your chicken)
*Skewers and a zip lock bag
The first step of this recipe is to cut your chicken breasts into desired sizes for skewering. Make sure they are not too thick so that they can be grilled faster and thoroughly (no one wants salmonella at a cookout). Put those chicken chunks into a gallon zip lock baggie and pour approximately 1 cup of Ranch dressing into the baggie with the chicken. I added a little bit of sweet chili cause, about a Tablespoon, to my baggie along with the Ranch dressing for a little kit. I have 2 kiddos and the kick of the sweet chili sauce was not too much for them and it was nice and zesty.
Here is where you have an option of marinating the chicken or not. On those weeknights that you do not have time, no marinating is required for this chicken to be delicious. However, I marinated mine for about 2 hours once and the chicken was extra yummy and moist.
After you put the chicken chunks, Ranch dressing, and sweet chili sauce into your zip lock baggie-make sure it is sealed really well. Then shake and roll! If you have little ones, they might have fun getting all that chicken coated with the Ranch mixture. In the meantime cut a red onion into large chunks (not slices-you need some onion bulk to actually skewer).
Once the chicken is coated, stab the chicken onto a skewer. Then add a large chunk of red onion and then a piece of bacon. For the bacon, I used those wonderful precooked bacon slices you can get in the refrigeration isle at your grocery store. They are already cooked and all you have to do is cut each slice in half for the skewering. The grill does all the rest for you. Fold a piece of bacon, that has been cut in half, like an accordion to really get good onto the skewer.
|I used metal skewers. If you use bamboo skewers, make sure to soak them in water prior to adding your ingredients to prevent the skewers from burning.|
So, chicken->red onion->bacon.....and....repeat. Then grill those puppies up and that's IT!!!!
|I paired mine with sliced potatoes coated with extra virgin olive oil and garlic salt that I grilled as well.|
