Weekly Test Recipes - Week 21 and 22!
These recipes were made utilizing my graduation gift for Tony - a portable grill :)
1. HONEY CHICKEN KABOBS (allrecipes.com)
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1/3 c. honey
1/3 c. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
8 boneless/skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1" cubes
2 cloves garlic
5 small onions, cut into 2" pieces
2 red bell peppers, cut into 2" pieces
wooden skewers, soaked in water to prevent from catching fire
In a large bowl, whisk together oil, honey, soy sauce, and pepper. Before adding chicken, RESERVE a small amount of marinade to brush onto kabobs while cooking. Place the chicken, garlic, onions and peppers in the bowl, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours (the longer the better). Preheat the grill for high heat. Drain marinade from the chicken and vegetables. Thread chicken and vegetables alternately onto the skewers. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the skewers on the grill. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, until chicken juices run clear. Turn and brush with reserved marinade frequently.
2. ORANGE VEGETABLE KABOBS (allrecipes.com)
1 large sweet onion
1 large orange, unpeeled
1 medium sweet red pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into 1 inch pieces
8 medium fresh mushrooms
8 cherry tomatoes
2 small yellow summer squash, cut into 1 inch slices
1/2 cup olive or vegetable oil
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons orange juice
Cut the onion and orange into eight wedges; halve each wedge. Alternately thread vegetables and orange pieces onto eight metal or soaked wooden skewers. Place in a shallow oblong dish. In a bowl, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, sugar, salt if desired, garlic powder and pepper. Pour over skewers. Marinate for 15 minutes, turning and basting frequently. Grill, covered, over indirect heat for 10-15 minutes or until the vegetables are crisp-tender. Brush with orange juice just before serving.
I didn't get a picture of either of these, but picture all the ingredients on a stick and that's it :) Check the allrecipes.com links to see photos as well. Both of these recipes were fantastic and fresh and EXCELLENT!
