Entrée: Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs
Honey, soy sauce, pepper and garlic make a terrific marinade and basting sauce for chicken chunks grilled on skewers with your favorite vegetables - try onion, bell peppers, tomatoes, or mushrooms.
Recipe yield: 4
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes
- 2 cloves garlic
- 5 small onions, cut into 2 inch pieces
- 2 red bell peppers, cut into 2 inch pieces
1. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, honey, soy sauce, and pepper. Before adding chicken, reserve a small amount of marinade to brush onto kebabs while cooking. Place the chicken, garlic, onions and peppers in the bowl, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours (the longer the better).
2. Preheat the barbecue for high heat.
3. Drain marinade from the chicken and vegetables, and discard marinade. Thread chicken and vegetables alternately onto the skewers.
4. Lightly oil the barbecue grate. Cook the skewers for 12 to 15 minutes, until chicken juices run clear. Turn and brush with reserved marinade frequently.
Beverage: Golden Wedding Punch
A citrus and pineapple juice punch. This is decidedly different from your usual punch
Recipe yield: 2
- 1 (12 fluid ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate
- 1 (46 fluid ounce) can sweetened pineapple juice
- 1 3/4 cups lemon juice
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1 gallon water
1. In a 2 gallon punch bowl, combine orange juice concentrate, pineapple juice, lemon juice and sugar. Stir in water.
Appetizer: Scallop Appetizers
This great scallop appetizer cant get any easier than this with only three ingredients!
Original recipe yield: 8.
- 1 pound scallops, rinsed and patted dry
- 1 cup French dressing
- 1/2 clove garlic, crushed
1. Cut scallops into quarters, unless they are tiny bay scallops which may be left whole. Bring a saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil. Add scallops, and simmer for 4 to 5 minutes.
2. Drain, and place them into a jar while hot. Pour in the French dressing, and add the garlic. Screw the lid onto the jar, and shake to coat. Refrigerate until chilled to marinate. Drain and serve with toothpicks.
