Perfect Kabobs with DuPont { A Review and Giveaway}

Have I got a treat for you today! Not only do I have a absolutely delicious recipe for you, but I've also got a GREAT new grill pan to show you and a chance for you to win one too. But let's start at the beginning!

I love making kabobs on the grill, but it seems like every time I do one part ends up burnt. Sometimes it is the meat. Other times the veggies. I don't think I've ever made them that each piece was cooked evenly and correctly. So when the folks at DuPont  Teflon® approached me about trying their brand new grill pan I immediately knew the recipe I would test it with!

The Technique® Hard Anodized Dishwasher Safe 18"x12" BBQ pan with DuPont™ Teflon® nonstick coating (available through QVC) is revolutionizing not only how to use your grill, but also how to cook! Meats, potatoes, veggies...cook them all at once now; and in the same pan! Plus, you still get grill marks, which for me, if something is grilled it needs grill marks! (And I will admit I was very skeptical about this part. But if you keep reading, you will see the proof of this!) And the best part? This pan can be cleaned easily with warm water and a sponge because it truly is non-stick. Oh, and you can use metal utensils on this pan thanks to DuPont™ Teflon® ScratchGuard® nonstick coating (twice as tough as stainless steel!).

The inspiration for these kabobs was quite simple. We love gyros ! I thought why not deconstruct my recipe for Chicken Gyros , put the different parts on a skewer and throw it on the grill! Oh and course serve some tzatziki sauce on the side because that is the very best part of any gyro! Seriously, the meat and pita are just vehicles to get the sauce in my mouth! These are moist, tender and have the flavor we love so much in a gyro! Plus, they came out perfectly thanks to the grill pan! If you would like to own one of your very own, be sure to scroll to the bottom for your chance to win!

Gyro Kabobs with Tzatziki Dipping Sauce
1 (1.5 lb) package chicken tenders, cut into large chunks
1 pint grape tomatoes
1/2 white onion, cut into large chunks
1/4 c. plus 2 TBS vegetable oil
2 TBS lemon juice
1 1/2 TBS gyro seasoning
Salt and Pepper to taste

Tzatziki Sauce
16 oz. Greek Yogurt
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup diced cucumber (seeds removed)
1 TBS olive oil
2 tsp. lemon juice

Combine oil and lemon juice in mixing bowl. Fold in yogurt makes sure it mixes completely w/ oil. Add garlic and cucumber and mix well. Chill for several hours.

In a medium bowl combine chicken, 1/4 c. vegetable oil, lemon juice, gyro seasoning, salt and pepper. Mix well to coat. In a separate bowl combine tomatoes, onions, 2 TBS vegetable oil, salt and pepper. Mix well to coat. Marinate for at least 1 hour. When ready, alternate chicken, tomatoes and onions onto skewers. (If using wooden ones, be sure to soak in water to avoid burning.) Place grill pan on grill and turn heat on high. Reduce heat to medium and place skewers on grill pan. Cook for 5 minutes on first side, then carefully turn with tongs. Cook 5 minutes on second side. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking for 10 minutes, turning occasionally  or until juice run clear. Serve with sauce for dipping.

Long-time liker! This grilling pan is awesome, and the recipe sounds great, too! Of course, I would put tzatziki sauce on just about anything. I have nominated it as a separate food group. Still waiting to hear...
