Best Ever Chicken Skewers


  • 1/3 cup ranch salad dressing
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  • 2 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cut into 1 inch cubes)
  • 24 slices sweet onion
  • 12 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 12 long wooden skewers (soaked in water for several hours)
  • Ranch dressing for dipping


  • Step 1:

    Combine ranch dressing and chili powder in a large bowl or storage bag, then add chicken and coat well. Allow to marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour, and up to 3 hours.

  • Step 2:

    Thread one end of the bacon onto a wooden skewer, then a slice of onion, then a piece of chicken. Turn the skewer so the slice of bacon hangs down, then repeat with onion and chicken, weaving bacon over each piece. Place 3 to 5 pieces of chicken on each skewer. Push all pieces to the center of the skewer.

  • Step 3:

    Grill over medium heat turning every 3 to 4 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 12 to 15 minutes total.

  • Step 4:

    Serve with additional ranch dressing. Makes 12 servings.
