I'm addicted to the show Chopped.
I've always wanted a grill...
I noticed on the show they use an over the range grill... it covers 2 burners and you just set it on your stove and use it as a grill. I've been on the lookout and hunting for a good one I could get on sale, use my Kohl's or Bed Bath and Beyon coupon or find one on sale. They are expensive! all the ones I've seen are atleast $50. So the other day I discovered some 'fun money' I got from a garage sale we did a while back and was gonna bite the bullet buy the George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor grill... (my mother in law has it and its amazing!) Trekked to Bed Bath and Beyond with my coupon, only to find out they don't sell them in stores anymore! anyways. I'm blabbing. Was at Kohl's, carried around an over the range one... and couldn't do it. I'm such a cheapo! So I found one at Target, not cast iron like the real ones... much lighter, non stick and a fraction of the price. So I thought I'd give it a try. Worked pretty amazing! I don't remember the brand name, but the logo had a viking on it.
anyways, made some super easy kabobs with rice pilaf the other day for the hubby and the boys... here's the recipe!
1/4 vegetable oil
1/3 cup of honey
1/3 soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
6-8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes
2 cloves of garlic
1-2 onion (I used a red onion)
3 bell peppers cut into cubes
1 pack of mushrooms (I use the whole and cut, so they are thicker)
1. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, honey, soy sauce, and pepepr. Before adding chicken, reserve a small amont of marinade to brush onto kabobs while cooking. Place the chicken, garlic, onions, peppers and mushrooms into bowl and marinate in the fridge for atleast 2 hours... the longer the better
2. Preheat grill for high heat
3. Drain marinade and discard. Thread chicken and veggies onto skewers
4. Lightly oil grill. Place skewers on grill. Cook for 12-15 minutes until chicken is no longer pink. Turn kabobs frequently..
