On a Stick - Buffalo Chicken Skewers

Posted by   + Show Post


When I saw this recipe for Grilled Buffalo Chicken Kebobs I knew my family was going to love it. We are big fans of buffalo chicken wings and this recipe melds those spicy and sweet flavors perfectly. The addition of crisp iceberg lettuce and wedged new potatoes really round out the meal. Here's how to make it:

1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 24 cubes

24 (about 1 1/2 cups) refrigerated new potato wedges, from 1-pound 4-ounce bag

24 pieces (about 1 inch) celery

2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil

1 teaspoon red pepper sauce

1/2 teaspoon black and red pepper blend

1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt

6 cups torn romaine lettuce

1/2 cup shredded carrot

1/2 cup blue cheese dressing

  1. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Thread chicken, potatoes and celery alternately on each of eight 8- to 10-inch metal skewers, leaving 1/4-inch space between each piece. Mix oil and pepper sauce; brush over chicken and vegetables. Sprinkle with pepper blend and seasoned salt.
  2. Cover and grill kabobs 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 15 to 20 minutes, turning occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center and potatoes are tender.
  3. Arrange romaine and carrot on 4 individual serving plates. Top each with 2 kabobs. Serve with dressing.

Moms, what are your favorite hearty salads for summertime?

These sound really good! Sometimes I like a grilled chicken salad. I marinate the chicken breast in Italian dressing then grill it, so yummy!


I'm thankful for a hubby that loves me, 4 healthy children, a warm
place to sleep and enough food for our meals... God bless America!

I like a layered salad that I make in a glass bowl to show off the layers. A layer of lettuce, then cooked chopped potatoes,  chopped hard cooked eggs, sliced onions, bacon, sliced green pepper, peas, cheese, and any other meat or veggie that I have around, then spread on top 1 cup mayo with 1 tsp sugar mixed in. Let set in the refrigerator a few hours.

That looks delicious!

We love a good asian chicken salad, cobb salad, or chicken caesar salad.  There's also a great salad my aunt gave me the recipe for called "moonlight salad". It's a great one, too.
