Banana Honey Chicken Kabobs Recipe

We love using our barbecue grill and make all kinds of tasty dishes using it. We live in the north east and use our grill for about 8 months out of the year. One of the things we enjoy making is our own Kabobs out on the grill. They are versatile and you can substitute all kinds of meat, veggies, fish and fruits when making them. The family really enjoys them and they are easy to prepare.

Banana Honey Chicken Kabobs Recipe

8 chicken thighs, skinned and boned
1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. honey
6 Tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices smoked bacon
2 large ripe bananas

Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Combine the vinegar, lemon juice, honey, oil, garlic and salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the chicken pieces to mixture and toss until well coated. Cover and leave to marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Stretch the bacon slices with the back of a knife and then cut each piece of bacon in half. Cut the bananas into 1" lengths and brush them with lemon juice to prevent browning. Wrap a piece of bacon around each piece of banana. Remove the chicken from the marinade mixture, reserving marinade for basting. Thread the chicken pieces and bacon wrapped banana slices onto skewers. Barbecue the kabobs for 8-10 minutes until chicken is completely cooked. Baste the kabobs with marinade and turn frequently.
