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 Cooks.com)
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 email@example.com. :-)
I've got a busy day ahead, so I'm outta here! Happy Thursday, hooligans!
