Cooking with Corazon: Episode XXIV

Grilled Maple Dijon
Chicken Skewers


For dinner today I got to use our family's new grill for the first time! On on the menu was the following. Take a look:


I made grilled maple Dijon chicken skewers. To be honest, I didn't initially know how the maple syrup would work with the Dijon mustard, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised. Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:
-4 or 5 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
-1/3 cup maple syrup
-1/3 cup Dijon mustard
-2 Tbs. olive oil
-Salt and pepper to taste
-Assorted veggies of your liking (I used a zucchini, mushrooms and a red pepper)
-Italian dressing

Directions:
1.) Chop chicken breasts into one inch cubes.
2.) Marinade the chicken cubes for at least one hour in the olive oil, maple syrup, Dijon mustard and salt and pepper.
3.) Chop up the veggies of your choice to desired size and marinade in Italian dressing.
4.) Place chicken cubes and vegetables on wooden skewers and grill until cooked (roughly 20 minutes should do it).
5.) SCARF!!!

We all enjoyed this meal, which was really easy to cook. You'll love the maple syrup and Dijon mustard combination. They go together quite well. And the Italian dressing veggies are a nice addition as well.

Buen provecho!
