Recipe type: Main
Serves: 4-6 servings
Ingredients
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1" pieces
  • 8 oz barbecue sauce
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne
  • 3 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 6 slices uncooked bacon, cut into small pieces
  • 2-3 tablespoons barbecue sauce
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, combine the kosher salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, cayenne, dark brown sugar, and bacon. Pulse until completely smooth. Stir in 2-3 tablespoons of barbecue sauce to combine.
  2. Put the chicken pieces in a bowl and then rub with the bacon paste. Once well coated, cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  3. Thread the chicken pieces onto skewers.
  4. Light the grill and heat to medium-high.
  5. Place the kebabs on the preheated grill. Cook for about 5 minutes per side, or until nearly cooked through.
  6. Brush the kebabs with the barbecue sauce and cook for an additional minute or two on each side.
  7. Serve with the remaining BBQ sauce, if desired.
Notes
You can use chicken breasts but you might need to adjust the cooking time. We prefer thighs, they don't tend to dry out as quick.
