Bacon Bourbon Chicken Kebabs

Way back, I received a book of Jord Althuizen's, No Worries BBQ. One of my favorite dishes from that book were the Bacon Bourbon Chicken Kebabs. A simple, but delicious BBQ dish (the book is full of those anyway), of which I am now sharing my own version with you. You should definitely try these kebabs on the BBQ, because they are an absolute delight!

  • 800 grams Minced Chicken
  • 300 grams Smoked Bacon
  • 80 milliliters Whiskey
  • 200 milliliters BBQ Sauce
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Dried Parsley
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • Seasalt

Overige Benodigdheden:

  • BBQ with Lid
  • 8 (wooden) Skewers
  • Basting Brush


  • Fire up the BBQ and set it up for a combination of direct and indirect heat and a temperature of about 180 degrees Celsius (356 Fahrenheit).
  • Are you using wooden skewers? Then put them in some water now, so they can absorb some moisture and do not get burned on the BBQ.
  • Put the minced chicken in a large mixing bowl and add half the whiskey, the onion powder, the paprika, the sugar and the parsley. On a cutting board, chop the bacon in small pieces and add this as well. Finally, season with freshly ground black pepper and some seasalt and mix all the ingredients together.
  • In another small bowl, mix the BBQ sauce with the other half of the whiskey and set aside. Next, take out your skewers and divide the chicken mince into 8 equal parts. Now knead each portion around a skewer and place the skewers on a plate.
  • Is the BBQ up to temperature? Then place the skewers on the direct part (above the hot coals) on the BBQ and grill for 4 minutes. Then turn the skewers over and grill them for another 4 minutes.
  • After this, move the skewers to the indirect part of the BBQ and brush them all around with the whiskey BBQ sauce. After 3 minutes, repeat this again and let the skewers continue to cook on the BBQ for another 3 minutes. Then remove the skewers from the BBQ and serve them with the rest of the sauce. Enjoy your meal!
