West End Cuisine makes putting out a hearty appetizer a snap with their Grilled Mediterranean Style Chicken Skewers. The tender and moist chicken skewers are fully cooked, so all you have to do is heat them up and place them on the table. They are on a STICK! Directions offer a variety of ways to heat them up: in the oven, microwave or on the grill. I heat mine up in the oven for 10 minutes, turning at the 5 minute mark. The possibilities are endless when you start adding dipping sauces. Yes, it is time to take out all those strange condiments you received in those Christmas gift baskets! Razpotle sauce (by Fischer & Wieser), ranch dressing, ketchup, mayonnaise and BBQ sauce also make happy companions to the well seasoned chicken.
The chicken skewers come in a two compartment (6 in each) package of 12 skewers for $11.89 at my local Costco, which is less than a dollar per skewer (12 king sized candy bars cost more than that)! Shelf life in the refrigerator is about 2 weeks and they can be frozen. The chicken does not contain any added hormones or antibiotics and before they became skewers, West End proudly states on the package that the chickens were vegetarian fed. Two chicken skewers, which are considered to be a serving, will provide 24 grams of protein. I served these recently during a gingerbread house decorating party. With all that sugar and icing flowing so freely, I wanted to make sure to offer some protein for our guests. They were gone within minutes! They are versatile and will serve as a great lunch or dinner when paired with a Mediterranean salad or your favorite side. Did I mention that they are on a STICK!
