Real Men Cook: Sesame Chicken Kabob

Sesame Chicken #sesamechickenrecipes

Who doesn’t like Chinese food on occasion, right?! A night in, good Chinese food, a glass of wine, and a movie. One of my favorite Chinese dishes is Sesame Chicken, well, that and Honey Seared Chicken. But I love the flavor that the Sesame Chicken has with the hints of mandarin orange and ginger, it’s so yummy! What’s your favorite Chinese Dish? Maybe we can try to make that one next!

Today, for our “Real Men Cook” day. I thought I would do a twist on the normal Sesame Chicken Recipe and turn it into a kabob and have those boys throw it on the grill. This Sesame Chicken Kabob will definitely be a favorite around your house, and the best part is you don’t even have to make the marinade! I cheated a bit and bought the Lawry’s Sesame Ginger Marinade and it was delicious! You will love it and so will the fam!

To get started, cut up 1.5 lbs. of boneless chicken breast into 1″ cubes.

In the meantime, chop up your veggies. Seed and cube 1 green bell pepper and 2 red bell peppers, set aside. Peel and cut 1 red onion into quarters. {I separated some of the layers to make sure I had enough onion and it will cook more evenly when on the skewer}

Drain a 20 oz. can of pineapple chunks in juice. Bring out your chicken, set up your assembly line and start alternating chicken, red pepper, green pepper, pineapple, and red onion on a skewer.Β {I used my metal ones, but you can use wooden if you’d like – just be sure to soak them so they don’t burn. :)}

Do this until all the ingredients are used up. Heat grill to medium high heat, place all kabobs on grill and grill each side for approximately 4-5 minutes.

Serve over a bed ofΒ Jasmine Rice.

Slather some of the extra marinade over top the kabobs if you like it “saucey”. πŸ™‚

These Grilled Chicken Sausage Kabobs were no exception, and they come together in less than 30 minutes! […]
