Get Ready to Make Your Chicken Happy, Not to Mention Your Taste Buds!

Oh snap, Mommy did it again!  She loves creating new dishes in the kitchen and earlier this week she came up with an awesome homemade dipping sauce for chicken.  She made it right before Daddy came home from work as her chicken wings were cooking and she was eager to see if he would like it.  Success is all that we have to say, as when he tasted the new dipping sauce – every other word out of his mouth was “this stuff is awesome” and “give me more”.  Pure happiness is what it is to make something in the kitchen and get rave reviews over it, now our chicken will never be the same as we will make up a batch of this dipping sauce every time we dine on chicken!

So, without further deliberation, here is the recipe for Mommy’s Chicken Dipping Sauce and if you want to printout the recipe & share it with others, click HERE:


1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons Yellow Mustard
1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Tablespoon White Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Honey
Pepper to taste

Kickin Kabobs

Summer is in full swing and so is the grill!  Grilling and Summer go hand in hand, and we always look for new things to throw on the grill, like corn, and I have also heard that grilling pizza directly on the grill is absolutely delicious, but we have not tried that yet.  (try Googling grilled pizza to see what you find)  But one of the best things to grill other than hamburgers, hot dogs and steaks, are kabobs! 



Mommy came up with a great marinade combination that she uses on beef tips.  Once she thaws out the beef tips, she cuts them up in the perfect proportioned size and places them in a shallow bowl and covers them up with Kikkoman Soy Sauce and Kraft Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing & Marinade, then sprinkles on McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning and Oregano.  Then she covers the bowl with cling wrap and leaves it in the fridge all day.  (the longer you let the beef tips soak in the marinade, the better) 

Once it’s grillin time, take the beef tips out of the marinade and now you are ready to start assembling your skewers.  We have a nice set of metal skewers, and we spray a light coating of Pam Spray on them so nothing sticks.  Then we start the production line:  a piece of beef, a piece of onion, then a red pepper.  (you can add your own variety of veggies, of course) and so on until you have assembled all of the skewers.  You will have some of the marinade left over once you remove all the beef tips, and you can use this to drizzle over the kabobs while they are cooking on the grill. 

Grill the kabobs about 15-20 minutes, but don’t over cook them!  Now, all you need to do is serve them over a bed of rice for one great kickin kabob!   Dinner just got better with this fabulous marinade!  The beef tips are so flavorable and a mouth watering delight!

Here’s what we used to make our Kickin Kabobs:

  • One package of beef tips
  • One onion cut into medium sized pieces
  • One red pepper cut into medium sized pieces
