Sesame Chicken Shish Kabobs on the Grill Recipe

     Summer time is my favorite time of year.  There's nothing as wonderful as grilling outdoors and smelling the aroma of grilled meat and knowing it's yours to eat later.  I remember Summer barbecue's as a child at my aunt and uncles house.  We would climb their tree and swing on the playset.  All the adults would be chatting and cooking around the grill.  Other than those once a year gatherings, we did not grill much at home.  I think my dad did have a grill and used it once or twice that I remember.  Do you grill regularly?  We grill a couple times a week in the Summer.

I'd love to walk outside and see this set up for my Summer grilling!  But unfortunately this was a resort we stayed at...and not the norm in my backyard.

The solution for anyone that wants to grill and can't outdoors is this!  I received this wonderful Hamilton Beach Searing Grill for this post.  It is perfect for bringing that Summer grilling indoors.

easy to clean, there's a catch all tray underneath that slides out for easy cleaning.
The grilling tray removes easily to clean off.  I love it!
 Perfect for grilling sesame chicken kabobs or burgers.
The recipe for these Sesame Chicken kabobs has a surprising and unexpected ingredient!  Torani Syrup--Candied Sesame!

 This marinade is delicious and makes the best chicken...but it needs to marinate overnight, so make it the night before.

Sesame Chicken Recipe:

1/3 cup Canola Oil
 1/3 Cup Soy Sauce
 1/3 Cup Lemon Lime Soda
 1/3 Cup Candied Sesame Syrup

 Mix in 3 pounds of cut up chicken breast.  Cover in an air tight container and set in the fridge overnight.
 Next day it is ready to skewer and cook.
 Cut up some red onion and alternate chicken and onions on each kabob.  Four shish kabobs cook perfectly on the grill at once.  Other great items for a kabob are pineapple, zucchini, green and red peppers, squash, cherry tomatoes, and mushrooms.
 Rotate them until fully cooked.  I use a meat thermometer to make sure they all the chicken pieces reach the proper temperature, 165* F.
 Remove from the grill and they are ready to enjoy!  Seriously, these are so amazing!  The sweetness of the candied sesame and the saltiness of the soy sauce is a marriage made in heaven.
 This chicken is also amazing just thrown right on the grill.
 The perfect summer grilling dinner!  Torani syrups aren't just for drinks--this recipe is the best marinade!
