DIRECTIONS

  • Toss chicken and salt in large bowl; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour.
  • Heat gas grill to medium high.
  • While grill heats, pat chicken dry with paper towels. Combine sweet paprika, sugar, smoked paprika and pepper or chipotle powder in small bowl.
  • Process bacon in food processor until a smooth paste forms, 30 to 45 seconds, scraping down bowl twice during processing. Add bacon paste and spice mixture to chicken; mixing with hands or rubber spatula until ingredients are thoroughly blended and chicken is completely coated.
  • Thread meat onto skewers, rolling or folding meat as necessary to maintain 1-inch cubes.
  • Place kebabs on grill, turning one-quarter turn every 2 to 2 1/2 minutes until well browned and slightly charred, about 8 minutes for breasts or 10 minutes for thighs. Brush top surface of kebabs with 1/4 cup sauce; flip and cook until sauce is brown in spots, about 1 minute. Brush second side with remaining 1/4 cup sauce; flip and continue to cook until brown in spots until cooked through, about 1 minute longer. Remove kebabs from grill and let rest for 5 minutes.
  • Serve, passing reserved barbecue sauce separately.
