Favorite Recipes: Chicken and Shrimp Kabobs

We tried two delicious new recipes when we were on vacation.  There is a place on Dauphin Island where you can get fresh seafood that is caught that day.  Art and some of the children love seafood, but me and some other children do not.  I found these recipes for Chicken Kabobs and Shrimp Kabobs and I thought they would be fun and easy to make.  They were really good!  We will be making these again soon.

BBQ Chicken Kabobs

1 lb boneless skinless chicken cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
2 cups pineapple chunks
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
3 TBSP orange juice concentrate

Soak skewers 30 minutes in water before using.  Using long wooden skewers alternately thread chicken and pineapple chunks.  Mix OJ and BBQ sauce and brush over skewers.  Grill 8 to 10 minutes turning often until chicken is cooked through.  Makes 4 Kabobs.

Shrimp Kabobs

1/4 cup Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
1 lb large shrimp peeled, deveined
1 small red onion cut into one inch chunks
1 lemon cut into eight wedges

Alternately thread shrimp and onions onto skewers adding lemon wedges to ends.  Brush with dressing.  Grill 6-8 minutes turning often until shrimp is done.  Makes 4 Kabobs.

Art even did a couple that had shrimp and chicken that turned out really good!
