Makes 4 servings


Salt to taste
12 small red or new potatoes, about 1-1/2 inches in diameter (1 pound)

1 yellow or red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 small red onion, cut into 1-inch pieces
8 metal skewers (12-inches long)


  1. Prepare grill for direct cooking.
  2. Cook potatoes in boiling water until almost tender, about 10 minutes (or, microwave on HIGH 3 to 4 minutes or until almost tender.) Rinse with cool water to stop the cooking.
  3. Prepare Golden Glaze. Alternately thread chicken, potatoes, bell pepper and onion onto skewers. Brush glaze evenly over all sides of food.
