Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Adding Professional Grill Marks
For a restaurant-style touch, add grill marks to your grilled meat, poultry or Fish/Seafood. Just place the food diagonally across the hot oiled grill grates, then proceed with grilling as usual. For a special touch, rotate the food a quarter turn halfway through the grilling time on each side to create criss-crossed grill marks.
Tip 2
Soak Wooden Skewers Before Using for GrilledKabobs
If using wooden skewers, soak skewers in water for 30 min. before using to assemble kabobs to prevent them from burning on the grill.
Tip 3
Mindful Eating
Watch your portion sizes by using a smaller plate, taking larger helpings of lower-calorie options, like veggies.
Tip 4
Special Extra
Garnish with additional chopped fresh mint before serving.
Tip 5
Important Note
If the uncooked chicken logs are too soft to firmly stick to the skewers, refrigerate them 30 min. before grilling as directed.
