BBQ Chicken Tenderloin Kabobs - Just 5 ingredients, this is the perfect grilled chicken!

Here’s a fun fact about me—I am a huge Guy Fieri fan. Imagine my glee when I found out that he’s hosting a fun show on Food Network called Guy’s Grocery Games!

Sunday, May 25th’s episode, (that you can catch at 8/7c), will feature a grilling challenge. Inspired by the theme, I decided to have a little grilling challenge of my own, right at home!

My mission was to create an original BBQ recipe for the grill that uses no more than 5 food ingredients, so, over the weekend I made a quick trip to the supermarket to gather my ingredients.

I wanted to make a simple BBQ recipe that would be flavorful and satisfying for me and my husband, but also mild enough for my picky children to enjoy.

I ended up creating a super fast and easy barbecue sauce using just ketchup, dark brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and garlic. I put this wonderful barbecue sauce on some skewered chicken tenderloins and boom—amazing BBQ chicken tenderloin kabobs that the whole family loved.
