Sorry I didn't post yesterday - having the Evil Twin home throws my schedule off, but it's been nice to have him home!

As I said on Tuesday, we did Cajun Chicken Kabobs on Monday, so I thought I would post the recipe I used (found on

3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
3 large peppers, color of your choice, cut into pieces
2 large onions, cut into pieces
16 skewers (10 inches long)
1 Homemade Gourmet Louisiana Gumbo Mix
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil

Thread chicken, bell pepper and onion alternately on skewers and place in a shallow dish. Set aside.

Combine mix, water and oil in small bowl, stir until well blended. Pour marinade over kabobs. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Prepare grill and lightly brush grate with oil. Drain and discard marinade. Grill 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked thoroughly, turning occasionally to cook evenly.

TIP: If using skewers made from wood or bamboo, soak in water for 30 mins. before use. This will keep them from catching on fire during grilling.

I only used a pound of chicken, one pepper and one onion (I only did 4 metal skewers). I couldn't find the Gumbo Mix, but I did find this:

I put maybe 1/8 cup of the cajun seasoning in with the water and oil, maybe a tad more, but it turned out really tasty.

I knew we'd be eating leftovers forever if I made the full recipe.

People: Let's not forget about Friday Secrets tomorrow. Email your submissions to :-)

I've got a busy day ahead, so I'm outta here! Happy Thursday, hooligans!


  1. mmmm.. that sounds really good.. i think i might have to try this out... :-)

    God Bless

  2. I definitely need to come to casa Evil Twin so you can feed me...

  3. With my stomach I'd have to skip the peppers, onions and gumbo stuff. So the substitute recipe would be called 'oily chicken on a stick'.

  4. Sounds tasty! Mail me some leftovers if you have any.

  5. Yum! I'm thinking about grilling chicken tonight. I'll have to give this a try.
