Summer grilling made easy and tasty!

I know 4th of July looks a lot different this year with the pandemic, but hopefully you are able to still enjoy it. Since I will only have one of my boys with me this year, Naomi and I are visiting my brother and his girlfriend, keeping our gathering within the guidelines of 6 people or less. We are bringing this. And some sparklers.

Sure, we are going to miss the fireworks show, but at least food hasn’t been cancelled. Of course this dish extends beyond the holiday, so let’s get to talking about it. To make this move along even more swiftly, I used The Little Potato Company Creamer Potato microwave kit. There is nothing worse than grilling kabobs and one component is either under or over-cooked.

And when potatoes and chicken are strung together on the same stick there’s bound to be issue if you don’t parboil the potatoes. But who wants to do that?

The Creamer potato kit allows you to skip parboiling, just five minutes in the microwave and they are ready. This means you don’t have to sacrifice one kabob component for another. Which also means less prep time and more time to summer!

To get started here are few tips before getting starting on these grilled chicken kabobs:

What’s the best way to evenly cook the chicken?

Always cut chicken into pieces as uniform as possible. Or at least string together like-size pieces together for even grilling.

What is a creamer potato?

Creamer potatoes are usually Yukon Gold potato or Red potatoes that are harvested before they are mature to keep them small. They are generally 1-inch in diameter.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Additional Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 27 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup gold tequila
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (5 to 6 limes)
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (2 oranges)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dill
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh jalapeno pepper (1 pepper seeded)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb. chicken breast, cut into 1-cubes
  • 2 green bell peppers, cut into 1 inch squares
  • 2 yellow bell peppers, cut into 1 inch squares
  • 2 green bell peppers, cut into 1 inch squares
  • 1/2 lb The Little Potato Company Lemon & Garden Herb Microwave Ready Kit, cooked according to package

Instructions

    Combine the first 10 ingredients in a large bowl. Add the
    chicken and toss to coat. Refrigerate for at least an hour, or overnight.

    Heat grill on high for 15 minutes with the lid closed. Turn
    heat down to medium and open the lid. Tightly fold a paper towel into a square and dip in oil. Use the heavily soaked paper towel and brush the rack to oil it. This will prevent the chicken from sticking.

    Remove chicken from the refrigerator and thread 3-4 pieces
    onto each skewer, alternating between the peppers and potatoes.

    Grill chicken, turning every 2-3 minutes for a total of 12
    minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Serve immediately.
