Welcome to another "Hairband and Bacon Friday" everybody! I heard this song this past weekend and forgot how much I really liked it back in the day. They may not have had the make-up and the Aqua Net but these guys had the hair and some serious musical chops!
and as we head into a big BBQ weekend try this smoky recipe out...
Chicken and Bacon Shish Kabobs
Prep Time: 25 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Ready In: 1 Hour 45 Minutes
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons canola oil
10 large mushrooms, cut in half
2 green onions, minced
3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into chunks
1/2 pound sliced thick cut bacon, cut in half
1 (8 ounce) can pineapple chunks,drained
1.In a large bowl, mix the soy sauce, cider vinegar, honey, canola oil, and green onions. Place the mushrooms and chicken into the mixture, and stir to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.
2.Preheat grill for high heat.
3.Remove the mushrooms and chicken from the marinade and shake off excess. Pour the marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes; set aside.
4.Wrap the chicken chunks with bacon, and thread onto skewers so that the bacon is secured. Alternate with mushroom halves and pineapple chunks.
5.Lightly oil the grill grate. Arrange skewers on the prepared grill. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, brushing occasionally with remaining soy sauce mixture, until bacon is crisp and chicken juices run clear.
