Ingredients

  • 8-10 skewer sticks
  • 2 chicken breast , boneless, skinless, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • ½ cup green bell pepper , cut into 1 inch pieces
  • ½ cup red bell pepper , cut into 1 inch pieces
  • ½ cup Spanish onion , cut into 1 inch pieces
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

  • 1 chipotle pepper in its adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle adobo sauce
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • ¼ cup honey

Instructions

  • Heat outdoor grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  • Thread chicken and vegetables alternately onto skewers. Season chicken and vegetable skewers with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a food processor, mix together chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, barbecue sauce and honey until well combined.
  • Place chicken skewers on the grill to cook turning occasionally until charred, about 10-15 minutes.
  • When skewers are almost done, brush with honey chipotle barbecue sauce and grill until done.
  • Serve warm with corn, bread or tortillas.

Notes

 
  • You can use metal or wooden skewers. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for about an hour before grilling to keep them from burning in the grill.
  • Be sure to cook the chicken all the way through. The outside should be slightly charred and have a uniformed white color inside. If you have an instant read thermometer they should register at 165F.
  • Use your favorite BBQ sauce for this recipe.
