Labor Day weekend has traditionally meant the end of various things.
For many children, it means the end of summer vacation (not down here in the South, though—we start school early.)
It’s supposed to mean the end of wearing white shoes (I tend to ignore this and wear white sandals as long as I possibly can. :) )
And…some believe it’s time to put away the grill after Labor Day is over.
But we don’t have to! We can keep on grilling while wearing our white sandals, poolside.
With that in mind, here is a fun recipe for the grill that’s great for entertaining.
Chicken and Prosciutto Skewers
Chicken breast (cut into thirds, lengthwise—or use already sliced tenderloins)
Balsamic dressing for marinade
Dates or figs
Prosciutto (enough to wrap each chicken strip)
Preheat your grill to medium heat. Marinate the chicken in balsamic dressing for at least 30 minutes in the fridge. Cut the dates or figs in half (pit the date first, if using dates). Wrap the Prosciutto around the marinated chicken breast and date/fig and thread onto skewer. Grill until the chicken is cooked, turning frequently (about 5 minutes for each side, or until juices run clear and chicken is no longer pink).
Fight back against the end of summer! :)
