Last weekend my 15-year-old son and I were looking for something to grill. My son loves buffalo wings, and has become quite the chef when it comes to cooking them. His sauce is quite tasty and he’s even placed 3rd in a wing cook-off. We decided to use his sauce as a marinade for some grilled skewers and it turned out to be pretty tasty, so we thought we would share.
1. First, we mixed up his sauce:
- 1 Stick unsalted butter, melted
- 1 ½ Cups Franks Red Hot sauce
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
- ½ tsp. oregano
- ¼ tsp. cayenne pepper (add more if you like it hotter)
2. Dice 3 or 4 uncooked chicken breasts
3. Add the diced chicken and the sauce to a plastic container with a lid that seals tight. Shake lightly so the chicken is coated with sauce.
4. Put in the fridge for at least 6 hours. Lightly shake to coat chicken every half hour.
5. Dice an onion and a green pepper.
6. Add chicken, onions and peppers to skewers.
7. Grill the skewers on a hot grill. (I was out of charcoal so we used our gas grill with some pecan chips added for smoke)
8. Mix up another batch of sauce and brush onto the skewers while they grill.
9. Serve with rice and veggies.
They turned out great and it was a lot of fun creating a new recipe with my son.
