What You Need To Make This Spicy Parmesan-Garlic Chicken Skewers Recipe?

Chicken Thighs: We use boneless, skinless chicken thighs. For their juiciness and flavor. They remain tender on the grill. Making them the ideal choice for skewers.

Olive Oil: A bit of olive oil. Helps the BBQ seasoning adhere to the chicken. And adds a hint of richness.

BBQ Seasoning: This adds a smoky flavor. That’s reminiscent of summer barbecues.

Unsalted Butter: Butter melds the flavors together on the grill. Adding creaminess. And helping the spices stick to the chicken.

Fresh Parsley: Adds a burst of freshness to the rich flavors. Balancing out the heaviness.

Roasted Garlic Paste: We use roasted instead of raw garlic for its mild, sweet flavor. Which complements the sharp Parmesan. And spicy buffalo sauce.

Grated Parmesan Cheese: Freshly grated Parmesan adds a salty, cheesy crust to the skewers. Elevating the dish. With a gourmet touch.

Buffalo Sauce: Adjust the amount to suit your taste for heat. It brings a zesty, tangy spice to the skewers.

Kosher Salt and Black Pepper: Essential for enhancing all the other flavors in the dish.

Steps To Make Spicy Parmesan-Garlic Chicken Skewers:

Step 1: Begin by cutting the chicken thighs into 1-inch pieces. Ensuring they are of even size for uniform cooking. In a mixing bowl. Drizzle the pieces with olive oil. And sprinkle with BBQ seasoning. Mix well. Until every piece is evenly coated.

Step 2: Thread the seasoned chicken. Onto wooden skewers. Prepare your grill. By heating it to a medium-high temperature.

Step 3: While the grill warms up. Prepare the spicy garlic parmesan butter. In a separate bowl. Combine the softened butter, parsley, garlic paste, grated Parmesan, buffalo sauce, salt, and pepper. Until the mixture is smooth. And well incorporated.

Step 4: Place the skewers directly on the grill. Cook, turning every few minutes. To ensure even cooking. And avoid burning. Once the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 135°F. Begin brushing generously with the spicy garlic parmesan butter. Continue to cook. Applying more butter as you turn the skewers. Until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.

Step 5: Remove the skewers from the grill. And give them one final brush. With the butter mixture before serving. This last application makes them extra juicy and flavorful.

Marinate for Extra Flavor: For an even deeper flavor infusion. Consider marinating the chicken pieces in the olive oil. And BBQ seasoning mixture before skewering. Allow the chicken to marinate. In the refrigerator. For at least an hour. Or overnight if time allows. This extra step. Helps the seasoning penetrate more thoroughly into the chicken. Ensuring each skewer is packed with flavor. Right from the inside out. Not only does this enhance the taste. But it also helps keep the chicken moist. And tender during grilling.
