Grilling Time! I have put my Mother's Day present to great use. I have grilled everyday and I just love it! I decided that I wanted to grill some Kabobs today. I just bought some new Applewood Smoked Salt and it smells delicious. If you have never used smoked salt, it's a must for those of us who are serious about grilling.
This recipe is so simple. Cut up your chicken breast into large chunks. I cut the chicken breast in half and then cut it into chunks about 1-2 inches. Chop the bell peppers and place everything in a bowl.
Season with the Applewood Smoked Salt, creole seasoning, garlic and onion powder and a little black pepper. Toss all this with a little extra virgin olive oil and that's it. Don't forget to soak your bamboo skewers for at least a few hours, if not, be prepared for them to catch a fire on the grill, #dangerous!
I lightly greased my grill with a little olive oil to help prevent the kabobs from sticking. You can make these skewers in advance and marinate overnight if you choose. I couldn't wait so I went straight to the grill.
For those of you wondering, those hotlinks in the back of the grill is all Big Goo. I said chicken, he said Pork...lol!

1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 tablespoon black pepper
1 teaspoon applewood smoked salt

Set up grill and lightly grease grates with a little olive oil, cook chicken for 12-15 minutes until chicken is no longer pink. Baste with a little barbeque sauce while cooking if desired. Be careful not to add to much sauce because you do not want the chicken to burn.
