Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • For bourbon sauce, in a small saucepan combine barbecue sauce, brown sugar, bourbon, soy sauce, cider vinegar and salt. Bring to a boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 3 to 5 minutes or until thickened.

  • On skewers, alternately thread chicken, zucchini and green onions, leaving 1/4 inch between pieces. Brush with bourbon sauce. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill skewers on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat 5 minutes. Turn and brush again with bourbon sauce; discard any remaining sauce. Grill 5 to 7 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink, turning occasionally.
