    Bacon ranch chicken skewers

    Bacon ranch chicken skewers



    I made this in the winter so I cooked bacon and then saut馥d the cut up chicken in some of the bacon grease. VERY good!! The spice mixed with ranch is awesome!


    1/3 cup ranch dressing
    1 tsp. hot chili paste (sambal celek for example)
    4 skinless, boneless chicken breast cut into 1 inch pieces
    24 (1 inch) pieces red onion
    12 slices thick cut bacon
    salt and pepper to taste
    12 (6inch) bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 2 hours

    whisk together ranch and chili paste in large bowl.
    mix in chicken pieces and toss to coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the fridge for 1-3 hours.
    preheat outdoor grill to med high and lightly oil grate.
    remove chicken and pat dry with paper towels.
    thread a piece of onion about 1 1/2 inches down the skewer.
    thread the end piece of bacon onto skewer so the rest is hanging down.skewer a piece of chicken then fold the bacon back over, turn skewer so bacon that is left is hanging down again. Repeat process untilbacon is used up. (Using 4-5 pieces of chicken)
    thread another piece of onion to hold the end of bacon on.
    repeat with all the skewers, season with salt and pepper.
    cook skewers on grill, turning every 3-4 minutes, until nicely browned on all sides and meat is cooked thru.(12-16 minutes per skewer)
    serve with ranch as dipping sauce.

    Oh really? That is what the recipe called for so I use the chili garlic paste in place. Is it similar at all?
