Total Time: 2h 46m



  • 1/3 cup ranch dressing
  • 1 teaspoon hot chile paste
  • 24 (1-inch) pieces red onion
  • 12 slices of Broadbent thick cut bacon
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 12 (6 inch) bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 2 hours



Step 1: Whisk together ranch dressing and hot chile paste in a large bowl.

Step 2: Mix in chicken pieces and toss to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 3 hours.

Step 3: Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

Step 4: Remove chicken from the bag and transfer to a plate or baking sheet lined with paper towels. Pat chicken pieces dry with more paper towels.

Step 5: Thread a piece of onion about 1 1/2 inches down the skewer.

Step 6: Thread the end portion of one strip of Broadbent bacon onto a skewer so the rest of the strip is hanging down. Skewer on a piece of chicken; thread on the next portion of the Broadbent bacon. Turn the skewer so that the long end of the Broadbent bacon is again hanging down. Repeat this process of skewering and turning until the entire strip of Broadbent bacon is threaded, using 4 to 5 chicken pieces.

Step 7: Thread a second piece of onion onto the end of the skewer.

Step 8: Repeat steps 5 through 7 for all twelve skewers.

Step 9: Season chicken skewers with salt and pepper as desired.

Step 10: Cook the skewers on the preheated grill, turning every 3 to 4 minutes until nicely browned on all sides and the meat is no longer pink in the center, 12 to 16 minutes total per skewer. Serve with ranch dressing as a dipping sauce.

Broadbent B&B Foods

Broadbent B & B Foods, have been producing Old Fashioned Country Hams since 1909. A Truly American Food that has been on this continent since colonial days, it was a staple that sustained many of our first settlers as they moved west. The climate had to be just right to cure hams in the days before electricity, and Kentucky's climate fit the bill! Therefore, the Broadbent family brought those traditions with them and used them to dry cure and preserve their pork. Today, we are still dry curing Country Ham, Bacon, and Sausage like our forefathers did. In modern cuisine, country ham is far from a Staple. It is found on the menus of ritzy restaurants across The United States. While it is still, in fact, Country Ham, it is often cut paper thin, and labelled as Prosciutto; which is used as the center piece for many Charcuterie Boards.
