Ingredients

  • 1 pound chicken boneless and skinless, cut into 1-2 inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chile powder
  • 1/2 cup BBQ Sauce
  • 16 leaves large Bibb lettuce
  • 2 plum tomatoes seeded and diced
  • 4 ounces blue cheese , crumbled
  • 1 cup green goddess dressing

Instructions

  1. Soak 16 wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes. 

  2. Toss chicken, fine sea salt, black pepper and 1/2 cup BBQ sauce in a large bowl.

  3. Evenly thread chicken onto 16 skewers at approximately 1 ounce per skewer. Do not thread too closely, being thin will make the grilling process shorter.
  4. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Baste with remaining BBQ sauce and rotate for approximately 8-10 minutes. Due to size of chicken and grill temperatures, the cooking time may vary. Internal temperature of chicken should reach 165 degrees.
  5. Remove from heat and allow to rest for 3-4 minutes. Assemble lettuce wrap by removing chicken from skewer, placing into a piece of Bibb lettuce along with freshly diced tomato, green goddess sauce and crumbled blue cheese.
