1⁄3 c. soy sauce1⁄3 c. brown sugar2 tbsp vegetable oil1 tsp ground ginger1/2 tsp garlic powder2 tbsp honey1 tsp seasoning salt1 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 32 1 to 1-1/2 inch pieces12 fresh whole baby portabella mushroomssmall zucchini or summer squashlarge peppers, cut into pieceslarge onion, cut into wedges12 cherry tomatoes
Cut the chicken into 1″ thick pieces.In a large zip-top bag combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, vegetable oil, ginger, garlic powder, honey, and seasoning salt. Seal and shake to combine. Set aside 2 tbsp of the marinade and refrigerate. Add chicken to the bag and seal tightly. Gently shake the bag to thoroughly coat the chicken and place in a 13×9 pan.Refrigerate for 3 hours, turning occasionally. Wash and dry all produce.Cut the zucchini, squash, peppers, and onions into 1″ pieces.Heat up the grill and drain the meat, discarding the used marinade. Using metal skewers, build your kebabs. We recommend using a single type of ingredient on each kebab to ensure it cooks to the right level of doneness and doesn’t burn while other ingredients aren’t cooked through. Add kebabs to the grill and cook until the veggies are browned and softened and the chicken reaches a 175 internal temperature. Approximately 15-20 minutes for the chicken. Veggies will vary. Serve hot over rice!

2¼ c. flour1 Fleischmann’s® RapidRiseTM Yeast1½ tsp sugar1 ½ tsp salt⅔ c. very warm water1 tbsp olive oil3 tbsp melted butter1 tbsp ranch seasoning mix2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese⅔ c. shredded chicken½ c. BBQ sauce⅓ c. shredded Mexican blend cheese1 c. ranch dressing
Preheat over to 400°F.In a large bowl, combine 1 c. flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, and salt. Add the very warm water and mix until thoroughly blended — approx. 1 minute. Slowly add flour until a soft dough forms, you may not need to use all the flour listed above. It should easily form a ball and feel slightly tacky.Knead on a flat surface, adding the flour until it’s smooth and elastic — approx. 4 minutes. Return the dough to the bowl and cover, allowing to rest for around 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine chicken and BBQ sauce (you can also sauté onions and add them to this step if you like.)On a floured surface, roll dough into a 14X12 rectangle and cut into even squares. Top each square with 1 tbsp of the chicken mix and sprinkle with 1 tsp shredded cheese. Pinch the edges closed to seal and place in a greased cast-iron pan. Be sure to set the sealed side down to prevent leaking. In a small bowl, stir together parmesan cheese and the dry ranch mix. Brush the tops of the rolls with butter and sprinkle the cheese mix over them. Bake on the lowest rack for 30 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.Serve with a side of ranch dressing for dipping!
