  • 450 gr barbecue sauce
  • 50 gr bourbon
  • 900 gr chicken thighs with no bones and skins, cut into several small pieces
  • Two teaspoons of salt
  • A teaspoon of ground white pepper
  • A half teaspoon of garlic powder and onion powder
  • 30 gr paprika
  • 45 gr of packed sugar (dark brown)
  • A tablespoon of smoked paprika
  • Six pieces of raw bacon, cut into several small pieces


  1. The first thing to do is to prepare for the grill by heating it over medium-high. Then, prepare a small bowl to combine some ingredients in it, like the bourbon and the barbecue sauce. Mix these ingredients until they are completely combined and set aside for a while.
  2. Then, prepare a food processor to combine some spices in it, like the white pepper, paprika, salt, onion powder, dark brown sugar, bacon, smoked paprika and garlic powder.
  3. Process the ingredients until they are completely combined and until the mixture turns perfectly smooth.
  4. Next, prepare a bowl and place the chicken thighs pieces in it. Also, don’t forget to rub the chicken with the bacon paste that you have made before. Make sure all parts of the chicken are completely coated and continue to thread the coated chicken pieces through the skewers.
  5. If you use wooden skewers, make sure you soak them in the water for one hour before using. When it is done, put the kabobs on top of the greased grill grates and cook for around 5 minutes for each side until the kabobs are thoroughly cooked. A few minutes before it is cooked, you may brush additional sauce on top of the chicken pieces.

After following all of the steps above, you may serve the homemade Bacon Bourbon BBQ Chicken Kebabs with a cup of barbecue sauce. Also, if you want it to be much healthier, you may add your favorite salad as the side dish. Enjoy the kabobs immediately while it is warm for a better taste.
