Grilled Chicken Kabobs
Kabobs are a fun and easy way to entertain for the 4th. This dish is a perfect match for Columbia Crest's new Horse Heaven Hills (H3) Chardonnay ($12.99 at Cool Springs Wine & Spirits)
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cubed
1 large green bell pepper, cut into 2 inch pieces
1 onion, cut into wedges
1 large red bell pepper, cut into 2 inch pieces
1 cup barbeque sauce
1. Preheat grill for high heat.
2. Thread the chicken, green bell pepper, onion, and red bell pepper pieces onto skewers alternately.
3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place kabobs on the prepared grill, and brush with barbeque sauce. Cook, turning and brushing with barbeque sauce frequently, for 15 minutes, or until chicken juices run clear.
