It’s that time of year: the sweet season of maple syrup, and with it, many delicious recipes. Maple syrup is used for much more than drizzling across breakfast pancakes or waffles. It can be a staple ingredient in recipes for lunch, dinner or dessert.
• 2 lbs. boneless chicken tenders
• 1 packed cup brown Sugar
• 1 cup ketchup
• 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
• 1/4 cup water
• ¼ cup pure maple syrup
Mix brown sugar, ketchup, red wine vinegar, water, pure maple syrup Worcestershire sauce, ground mustard, paprika, kosher salt and pepper in a large bowl. Place chicken tenders in the marinade, cover and refrigerate. For best results, let the chicken marinate for at least 2-4 hours or overnight.
After the chicken has marinated, carefully lace each individual chicken tender through the skewer, starting with the thicker end of the tender. Once each ender has been threaded, drizzle the remaining marinade over the chicken tender kabobs.
Heat grill to medium heat, place chicken on grill and cover. Cook for approximately 3 minutes, then turn over the kabob and cook another 3 minutes. Continue to rotate and check the chicken; the chicken will be done if the juices are clear and the center of thickest part is 170°F. The chicken should take around 8-10 minutes to cook, depending on size of chicken.
Remove from grill and enjoy. Great to serve with grilled corn on the cob, cornbread and a glass of milk.
