This post is a bit of a risk today, since it breaks the orange/black theme. However, I made this recipe a few days ago, and it’s fast, easy, and mess-free. So:  it’s good for eating in front of the TV, and if you put the chicken on skewers, it goes with the general ballpark theme of food-on-sticks. Think of it as an alternative to corn dogs. Or chicken fingers. Or a cross between the two.

The method is this: cut about 1 lb of boneless, skinless chicken breast into thin strips. Thread it onto bamboo skewers then marinate for an hour or so in:

  • 2 chopped cloves garlic
  • olive oil
  • 1 generous tablespoon country mustard
  • 1/4 cup  white wine
  • a good handful of chopped herbs:  rosemary, parsley, thyme–whatever you like/have on hand

I grilled mine on my panini press in about 5 minutes, but you could also broil these (remember to soak your skewers first so they don’t burn up!).  They were a home run with both kids.

Ideally, you’d serve them with sweet potato fries. Topped with black salt.
