Marisa Churchill's BBQ Chicken Bacon Skewers
8 ounces chicken breasts (cut into ½” wide strips)
8 ounces applewood smoked bacon
3 ounces pineapple wedges
1 jar good quality BBQ sauce
Wooden BBQ skewers
Directions: Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and pour into a shallow baking dish containing the wooden skewers. Allow the skewers to sit in the water for 30 minutes. It is important to do this so the skewers do not dry out and catch fire while you are cooking the meat. Pre heat the grill so that it is nice and hot, about 400 degrees. These can also be baked, on a baking sheet, in a 400 degree oven. Place a chicken strip on the skewer, making sure that it is firmly attached to the skewer. Tightly wrap a piece of the bacon around the chicken and attach the end of the bacon strip to the skewer to hold it in place. Put a wedge of pineapple on to the end of the skewer. Generously spread the BBQ sauce on top of the skewers and grill for 10-12 minutes or until the bacon is crisp and the chicken is cooked through. If baking in the oven, bake for 15-20 minutes, until the bacon is crisp and the chicken is cooked through. Place the skewers on to a platter. Serve hot.
