Chicken Shish Kebabs

As promised, here is the Chicken Shish Kebabs that I grilled for our picnic.
This recipe may be very familiar to those who grew up in Russia. This is the way my family and friends always prepared the meat for the shish kebabs.
 We, Russians, love cooking shish kebabs on an open fire during camping. Growing up, we went camping very often and we always sat around fire,  made shish kebabs, listen to someone play guitar and sing. I love those memories!

1 1/2 lb of boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2-3 cups of white vinegar (enough to cover the chicken)
1 medium Vidalia onion
salt and pepper

1. Cut the chicken thighs into about 2-inch pieces. Just try to get them as close to the same size as possible, so they cook evenly.

2. Slice the onion into slices and separate the rings. Place the meat and the onion rings in a bowl.

3. Add salt, pepper and enough white vinegar to completely cover the chicken. Cover the bowl and let marinade for about 4 hours or overnight. (Refrigerate)

4. When ready to grill…
Skewer the chicken alternating with onion rings. Grease the grill and cook the shish kebabs until completely done, turning over to evenly cook on all sides.

  4. I have made many recipes for Kabobs, but have never seen one with the white vinegar to marinate in…hate to be dense here,(I have been cooking since I was a teenage and am now 49!) but what does the vinegar do?  Is it a tenderizer? Thanks!

  5. WillCookForSmiles says:

     It does tenderize the chicken, it also adds a specific flavor, just enough to not be overwhelming.
