You start with a pound of chicken, and cube it up. Half gets a dunk in a little bit of oil, and the other, hoisin sauce. Mmmmmm. It's so delicious. For the kids' veggies, go simple with red bell kebabs and some quickly boiled snow peas. And for you? Add a little more oomph with grilled red onion (and red bells!). See? It's the same basic meal, just a little spruced up for your palate.

One Recipe, Two Meals: Chicken Kebabs

4 servings (2 kids, 2 adults)
40 min
25 min
4 servings (2 kids, 2 adults)



Special equipment: 4 metal skewers

Preheat a grill for cooking over medium-high heat. Evenly divide the chicken into two bowls. Drizzle one bowl with a tablespoon of olive oil and drizzle the other with the hoisin sauce. Let the hoisin chicken marinate for a little bit while you cook the kids' meal. 

Skewer the olive oil chicken onto a metal skewer. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper, then place the kebab on the hot grill. Slide half of the red bell pepper chunks onto another skewer and place on the grill. Cook, turning once, until the chicken is cooked through and you get nice grill marks on the veggies (about 5 minutes for the chicken and 10 minutes for the veggies). 

Meanwhile, boil the sugar snap peas in boiling water until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside. 

Now, slide the remaining red bell pepper and onion chunks onto another skewer, and slide the hoisin chicken onto its own skewer. Grill the meat and veggies until cooked through and nicely charred on all sides, glazing the chicken with the extra hoisin sauce as you cook it. 

Place the soy sauce, brown sugar, sambal oelek, lime juice and the remaining tablespoon olive oil in a bowl and whisk to combine. Divide between 2 small cups and garnish with half the scallions. 

Serve the kids' kebab with the red bell peppers, snow peas and dipping sauce. 

Serve the adults' hoisin kebab with the onion and bell pepper kebab. Garnish the chicken with the remaining chopped scallions and a nice sprinkling of sesame seeds. Don't forget the dipping sauce!
