Yield Makes 4 to 6 servings
Chicken and bacon are threaded ribbon-style on these fun skewers. Serve them with extra barbecue sauce for dipping.


  • 2/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/3 cup chili sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 12 chicken tenders (about 1 1/2 lb.)
  • 12 (6-inch) wooden or metal skewers
  • 6 bacon slices, cut in half crosswise

How to Make It

  1. Whisk together first 3 ingredients in a large shallow dish or zip-top plastic freezer bag; add chicken, turning to coat. Cover or seal, and chill 1 hour, turning once.

  2. Meanwhile, soak wooden skewers in water 30 minutes.

  3. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high). Microwave bacon, in 2 batches, on a microwave-safe plate at HIGH 1 minute. Let cool 5 minutes.

  4. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Place 1 bacon piece on top of each chicken tender; thread 1 bacon-topped chicken tender onto each skewer.

  5. Grill kabobs, covered with grill lid, over 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until done.
