Summer is prime grilling time, but it can get boring serving up the same old grilled staples over and over again. Hamburgers? Obvious. Hotdogs? Please. Ribs? Better but still expected. How about mixing things up and surprising dinner guests with a dish that is sure to impress and keep you out of the kitchen?

Bourbon-aged maple and Sriracha BBQ chicken kabobs are a great combination of spicy, smoky and sweet. Simple to throw together and even easier to cook, serve these with any number of side dishes and fresh seasonal vegetables for a complete meal that’ll no doubt earn you the title of Grillmaster.
