The ‘Un’ Shish Kabob

I love Shish Kabobs. They are so good! And talk about a versatile meal. It can be mixed up any way you like. But let’s be honest, threading the wooden stakes can be a pain. One night I wanted these but did not feel like soaking the stakes, cutting everything up then putting it on the stakes. Smooshing them onto our grill (we use an electric grill) and then cooking them until they were tough because the middle didn’t get completely cooked so I had to keep turning and turning it. No! That is when I came up with the idea for the ‘Un’ Shish Kabob. All the goodness of the original but so easy.

'Un' Shish Kabob. Wonderful quick meal for summer.

When I make mine I usually choose chicken or a combination of chicken & steak if I can find a good deal on it. Then I always add mushrooms & onions. Always. For my other  vegetables I usually do 1 red & 1 green vegetable. For this one I used Brussel sprouts and Roma tomatoes. I really love Brussel sprouts. So gather your ingredients……

I use my broiler pan for this. Now, how often do you think about using your broiler pan? Probably no often. So enjoy this. You may think of other ways to use it now that you’ve got it out. Go ahead and spray it with some Olive Oil spray.

Clean & cut your veggies. I kept my tomatoes whole. After they are cooked they almost ‘burst’ open when you cut into them. Try it, you will love it.

Add the vegetables to the broiler pan. Melt 4 Tbs. of butter. Season them with Salt & Pepper then pour the butter over them.

Now cut up your chicken.

Add your cubed chicken to the other side of the pan. Next you’re going to pour the Italian Dressing over your chicken. This really makes it tangy and gives it a little kick.

Now you are ready to put this into the broiler. While your placing everything onto the pan preheat the broiler. Once everything is on the pan go ahead and pop it in. I set my timer for 8 minutes. When the timer goes off, pull the pan out and turn the chicken and vegetables. Set for another 8 minutes.

During the first 8 minutes of cooking I usually start my ‘Quick Baked Potatoes’. Scrub and cut your potatoes in half. Cover with plastic wrap. When I start the second 8 minute timer I put the potatoes in to cook.

Once the timer goes off for the 2nd time pull the pan out and turn the chicken and vegetables. Check your potatoes. If they easily poke through with a fork your good to go. If they are a little thicker you may have to cook them for another 4-6 minutes. Do not overcook as it will make them hard and inedible.

With this I make 'Quick Baked Potatoes'

Set your timer for your last 8 minutes. So you will put these in the broiler for a total of 24 minutes, turning the chicken and vegetables every 8 minutes. They should be all nice and crispy on the edges. Oh yeah, look at this.

Plate up your ‘Un’ Shish Kabobs and potatoes.  I love dipping my chicken into Steak Sauce and topping my potatoes with butter and sour cream.  And here you are……..
