You may be thinking bacon paste? but its actually amazing! It gives the chicken a smokey flavor. I use chicken thighs as i think they give more moisture when cooking, but you can use chicken breast if wanted.
1kg Chicken Thighs, diced into chunks
200g BBQ Sauce
2 teaspoons Salt
1/2 teaspoon Garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Onion powder
2 tablespoons Smoked Paprika
3 tablespoons Brown Sugar
6 slices Bacon, uncooked, cut into small pieces
Soak Skewers in cold water.
In a food processor, combine the salt, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, brown sugar, and bacon. Pulse until smooth. Stir in 2-3 tablespoons of barbecue sauce to combine.
Put the chicken chunks in a bowl and then coat with the bacon paste. Once well coated, cover and marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Thread the chicken pieces onto skewers.
Light the BBQ or webber (we used our webber) and heat. Spray grill with oil to stop sticking. Place the kebabs on the pre-heated grill. Cook for about 5 minutes per side, or until nearly cooked through.
Brush the kebabs with the barbecue sauce and cook for an additional minute or two on each side.
