  • 15 bamboo skewers (6 inch)
  • 3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 lb/500 g)
  • 4 large green onions
  • 1 package (2.1 oz) fully cooked bacon (14 pieces)
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) barbecue sauce

    Soak skewers in water at least 30 minutes to prevent burning. Meanwhile, cut each chicken breast in half lengthwise, then cut crosswise to make 10 (about 1-inch) pieces. Cut onions into 2-inch pieces (30 pieces total). Cut bacon slices in half crosswise.

    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Push 1 skewer through end of 1 bacon piece, then through middle of 1 chicken piece and back through other end of bacon piece; add 2 onion pieces, then repeat with another bacon piece and chicken piece. Place on large plate or tray. Repeat to make remaining kabobs.

Cover; cook about 1 minute longer or until chicken is no longer pink in centre. If desired, serve with additional barbecue sauce for dipping.
