Meat & Veggie Skewers – Two Ways

Nothing screams summer quite like freshly grilled skewers. Heading into the holiday weekend, we’re sharing two of our favorite meat and veggie combos – savory marinated chicken and zucchini, and Brussels sprouts wrapped in Oscar Mayer bacon. Whether you’re breaking out the grill before you say goodbye to summer or looking for a fun, easy meal on a busy weeknight, these simple skewers are a sure fire way to please your whole party.

Brussels Sprouts and Bacon

  • 1 lb of Oscar Mayer bacon
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 2 lbs of Brussels sprouts, halved
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Skewers
  1. Drizzle olive oil into frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Add Oscar Mayer bacon to pan. Partially cook and remove from heat.
  3. Add olive oil, Brussels sprouts, salt, pepper and garlic powder to pan. Cook on medium heat until golden brown.
  4. On a skewer, pierce one end of a strip of bacon. Pierce and place Brussels sprout half on top of the bacon, then pierce the same strip of bacon again to top the Brussels sprout to form a weave. Repeat to fill the skewer.
  5. Pierce and place a brussels sprout on top of the bacon, then pierce the same strip bacon again (to top the brussels sprout) to form a weave. Repeat with two to three more brussels sprouts, depending on the size of your skewers. Repeat to finish the rest of the bacon and brussels sprouts.
  6. Lay skewers on a baking sheet. Bake at 375º for 5-10 minutes or until bacon is fully cooked.

Chicken and Zucchini

  • 2 lbs chicken, cut into 1 in. pieces
  • 1/4 cup lite soy sauce
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 3 zucchinis, cut into ribbons
  • 2 red onions, cut into 1 in. pieces
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Skewers
  1. In a bowl, mix chicken, soy sauce, ½ cup olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and Dijon mustard. Marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. Thread the ribboned zucchini on a skewer, weaving each ribbon over and under to create a wave effect. Add chicken and onion onto skewer. Alternate each ingredient until skewer is full.
  3. fold thinly slice zucchini into ribbon and pierce with skewer. Add chicken, red onion and repeat.
  4. Coat with olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill for 8-10 minutes and enjoy!
