Recipe by Pierre Dance
I found this one on line while I was putzing around. It sounded good and it seemed quick and easy so I gave it a shot. The flavor was marvelous. It lived up to my expectations.

Nice change from typical bbq chicken. The whole family enjoy it. I didn't have time to soak my skewers so I just cut thick strips of chicken and layed them across the grill so they wouldn't fall through. Even though the chicken wasn't bite size, there was still plenty of flavour.

- 1⁄2 red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch squares
