Exclamation ISO Chicken on a Stick ideas

Hi, I'm looking for different ideas to marinate chicken skewers. DH has specifically requested that it not be Asian style chicken. Needless to say, that means I'm at a loss for what to do! The only thing I can think of is seasoning it w/ a little salt and pepper and brushing w/ bbq sauce when it's almost done. This seems rather boring though. Thoughts??

There is a wealth of Asian flavors to choose from. By BBQ sauce, I assume you mean hoi sin.

You could also marinate in Teriyaki sauce.

Make a marinade from soy, rice wine, ginger, garlic and white pepper.

Make chicken satay with a peanut dipping sauce for a Thai flavor.

How about marinating the meat and veggies then grilling them:

Zesty Italian Salad Dressing

Zesty Italian Salad Dressing and Worcheshire Sauce

A Combination of: Balsalmic Vinegar, Soy Sauce, Sesame Seed Oil, EVOO, Worcheshire Sauce, Garlic, Ground Ginger, Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper.

Lemon Juice, Kosher Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper and Soy Sauce

Lemon Pepper Seasoning, Worcheshire Sauce

Just a few ideas!

Andy, DH does not want Asian. If he did, hehhe, he'd be asking the right person. I'm on a meat on a stick kick right now.

Maybe I'll try the balsamic vinegar mix. I'll just have to wing it. I have some sun dried tomatoes I migh puree into the vinegar. Thanks!!

How about...

Key West Tequila-Lime Chicken Kabobs


Succulent chunks of tequila-lime marinated chicken breast rubbed with McCormick Montreal Chicken® and Key West Style Seasonings. Threaded on skewers alternating with orange bell pepper, lime wheels, fresh pineapple, and grapefruit wedges and grilled. Squeeze grilled lime and grapefruit over chicken for a splash of Key West!

Maybe add some bananas, papaya, mango and/or yellow squash chunks - or omit bananas and serve a plantain dessert and coconut rice.

or

Mediteranean - mushrooms, onions, cherry tomatoes, peppers, black olives and a Greek yogurt cucumber dipping sauce and couscous

We used to do Italian chicken skewers, with a marinade of oil, lemon juice, garlic, and rosemary. Used pounded out chicken breasts, then cut in strips and threaded on the skewers. Marinate first, then skewer. After grilling (either stovetop or on outside grill, depending on the weather), popped a little plum tomato on top of the skewer. Served with a lemon-garlic aioli.

I love doing sort of "on the fly" Middle Easern chicken skewers with a mix of plain yogurt, fresh mint and cilantro, a little s&p, and a bit of chopped garlic. I put this all into a zip-lock bag and mix it up (just eyeball how much you'll need depending on your quantity of chicken pieces), add the chicken and let it infuse for at least an hour (or even over night) in the fridge. Thread the chicken onto your sweers (or you can do this with bone-in pieces too) and then bake them on a foil lined tray for about 20-25 minutes at about 220 degrees (mind you our oven bites, so you might need to adjust the cooking time and temp, sorry)

Other ideas that I like to make are Indian spiced skewers (you can use coconut and/or coconut milk for a korma sort of style), and (he-he-he, can you tell I'm a Canuck) a marinade made from maple syrup, chopped shallots and a little balsmic. (I know it sounds but if you like maple it rocks!)

Maybe marinate the chicken in a Jamaican Jerk marinade, then skewer and grill?

OOOPS! Sorry, HTC. I misread your post.
