Chicken Ka-Bobs

We had the best time Saturday night with Liz, Asher, and Jim - thanks for coming, guys! I don't know why I was hell-bent on sishkabobs, but I think the end product was fabu. The menu was artichoke dip, biscuits, the 'bobs, Liz's crunchy romaine salad, and Asher's hash browns, with key lime pie, our wedding Bailey's Irish Cream cake, or chocolate ganache cake for dessert. Damn, it was good!

So here's how we did the chicken:
- 4 BIG chicken breasts
- 2 purple onions
- 1 red bell pepper
- 1 orange bell pepper
- 1 yellow bell pepper
- 1 green bell pepper
- 1 package button mushrooms

The night before, we cut the chicken and vegetables into 1 1/2 inch pieces, and Mike decided on the marinades: chicken was in spicy- and cherry-teriyaki, vegetables were in lemon garlic and Caribbean jerk, and the mushrooms were marinated in soy and Worcestershire sauces. We sealed them up and stuck them in the fridge.

Then the next day, we skewered them (Mike did this for us for one of our first dates, and I remembered how much fun it was), heated up the grill, and grilled them until done, about 15-20 minutes.

It served a LOT more than we expected it to serve! I'd say about 8 people.

I won't mention how Mike thought the grill was filled up with gas, went to check on it, and realized he had run completely out, so he had to go pick up some more before we could cook them. He said it was so embarrassing.
