Splash More Flavor On Your Next Outdoor Meal
(NAPSA) - The next time you plan the menu for a picnic or barbecue, treat your guests to more than the average outdoor fare with lighter and more flavorful recipes.
"The secret to being the star of every barbecue is easy, especially when your food explodes with flavor," said Holly Clegg, author of "Trim & Terrific Home Entertaining the Easy Way." "I like to use cooking wine and seasoned rice vinegar as alternatives for marinades, salad dressings and other condiments, to name a few. They ensure every outdoor meal is trim and terrific-my everyday food mantra."
To get you started, try Tandoori-Style Grilled Chicken Kebobs, which can add flair to your plates straight from the grill. This carefully balanced combination of spices, along with mild seasoned rice vinegar, makes tender, deliciously aromatic chicken kebobs similar to those cooked in tandoor ovens in India. The marinade also tastes great when used with seafood.
In a blender, combine yogurt, seasoned rice vinegar and remaining ingredients except chicken. Cover and run on high until smooth.
Place chicken in a non-metallic bowl or sealable plastic bag. Add marinade and stir to coat chicken. Cover and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight, stirring chicken one or more times while marinating.
If using wood skewers, soak skewers in water 30 minutes. Drain chicken well and discard marinade. Thread chicken onto skewers.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Grill kebobs about 8 minutes over direct heat with cover closed. Use a metal spatula to turn kebobs. Grill with cover closed 6-8 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink inside.
Marinating time 8-24 hours; cook time 14-16 minutes.
