Ingredients:

For the brine:

  • 7 cups cold water
  • ½ c soy sauce
  • 1 c Brownwood Farms Cherry Barbeque Sauce (Add to Cart)
  • 2 T sugar
  • 2 T Kosher salt

For the skewers:

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 lb halved bacon slices
  • 1 large pineapple, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • ¼ c teriyaki sauce
  • ¾ c Brownwood Farms Cherry  Barbeque Sauce
  • wooden skewers soaked for 30 minutes in water

For the corn:

  • 6 ears of corn, unhusked
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 stick of butter, cut into 12 slices

 

Instructions:

  1. Whisk together all the brine ingredients until dissolved. Place the chicken breasts in the brine and cover with saran wrap. Place in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  2. While the chicken is brining, prepare the corn. First pull back all the husks from the corn but DO NOT REMOVE.
  3. Remove all silks from the corn. Be really careful to really remove all of it because otherwise it corn will taste very bitter.
  4. Season the corn with salt and pepper and put 2 slices of butter next to the corn inside the husk.
  5. Wrap the husk up with string (soak string in water first).
  6. Place into a pot of cold water for 30 minutes prior to grilling.
  7. Remove chicken from brine, pat dry, and cut into about 1 inch cubes.
  8. Wrap each piece of chicken with the halved slice of bacon. Thread the bacon wrapped chicken onto the skewer, alternating with the cubed pineapple.
  9. Mix together the teriyaki sauce and cherry barbecue sauce in a bowl.
  10. Place corn on the grill 5 minutes before starting to grill the skewers.
  11. Grill skewers on direct, medium-high heat until bacon is browned and crisp about 3-4 minutes per side.
  12. In the last two minutes of cooking, brush each skewer with the mixed sauce.
  13. Remove skewers from heat and check the corn. Let the skewers rest for 5 minutes and finish up the corn.  Serves six.
