Maple Balsamic Chicken and Bacon Skewers

by | Jun 29, 2022 | Meals, Recipes

  • 1/4 cup organic balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons organic maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon Redmond Real Salt
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless organic chicken tenders or breasts, cut into bite-size chunks
  • 2 organic red and/or orange bell peppers, chopped into bite-size chunks
  • 1 organic zucchini, chopped into bite-size chunks
  • 1 organic summer squash, chopped into bite-size chunks
  • 10 slices organic bacon
  1. If you plan to grill with wooden skewers, soak them in warm water for at least 30 minutes before proceeding.
  2. Mix the balsamic vinegar, maple syrup, and Redmond Real Salt in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and cook for five minutes, until slightly thickened. Toss the chicken pieces with the balsamic glaze. IF you have time, marinate the chicken in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours.
  3. Weave the bacon, chicken, and vegetables onto 12-inch skewers. You will likely need two pieces of bacon for each skewer. Start by piercing a piece of bacon near its end, and then add a piece of chicken. Weave the bacon around one side of the chicken and pierce the bacon with the skewer again. Next, repeat with a piece of zucchini or squash, then another piece of chicken, then a piece of pepper, and so on, adding a new piece of bacon whenever the old one runs out.
  4. Preheat your grill to medium-high, or preheat the broiler.
  5. Grill the skewers for about five minutes per side or broil for about 8 minutes per side, until the bacon and chicken are cooked through. Let the skewers rest for five minutes and serve hot, preferably accompanied by a cold glass of white wine.
