Grilled Chicken Kebabs and Potatoes Recipe
Sure, summer and grilling are inextricably intertwined, but if you have a gas grill it can be a year-round affair. Even if it's chilly out there's no reason why you can't fire up the grill, grab a sweater, and throw dinner on. It's as quick a way as any to put together a meal.
For the kebabs:
6-10 skewers (soak briefly in water if wooden)
2-3 boneless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper to taste
1 ½ teaspoons of seasoning spice mixture, preferably merken (or paprika if you don't want heat)
Olive oil (to dress)
15 small red bliss potatoes
12 pearl onions (red and white, if possible), peeled
12 baby bell peppers, stems sliced off
10 baby Portobello

"For Momofuku Má Pêche Presents: Summer Sessions, we wanted to explore a topic in the first wine class that isn't talked about as much as it should be," she said in an email to The Daily Meal. While boxed wine has made surprising gains in other countries, like Australia and France, it still has a less than superior reputation stateside.

Obviously, with experience comes know-how, and these schools have been studying the art of tailgating for as long as teams have been lacing up their cleats.Summer's wrapping up, and we're (begrudgingly) putting the bikinis in the back of our drawers and digging out our second most favorite attire: football jerseys.

Let's start thinking outside the potato-box when it comes to frying our foods.Sometimes, all we need is an order of mozzarella sticks to help get us through the day. Or maybe it's french fries that do the trick… or chicken tenders, or even onion rings. Whatever it is, there are often situations in life that call for a food to be submerged into incredibly hot oil and fried to crisp, golden brown perfection, giving us the ideal indulgence that'll help us nurse the hangover we're suffering from, a breakup that won't heal, or even help us overcome a child's stubborn eating habits.Read More »from 5 Things that Taste Better Fried
