"grill" news and stories
There's something about food on a stick that speaks to our inner child, especially when that food is perfectly cooked over an open flame, tender and succulent but with just the right amount of charred edge. The fact that these chicken kabobs are also healthy captures the attention of the adult side of us, we suppose.
The grill guy who cooked this up looked to the Mediterranean for heart-smart inspiration, and found a solution for keeping his "arch-nemesis: boneless skinless chicken breasts" moist.

"If you can't make a steak delivery system work in Texas, then something's very wrong," concedes Mark Kime, who opened the state's first Steak-Out in Fort Worth late last month.
The Steak-Out concept -- summarized on the company's Web site as "from our grill to your door" -- was created in 1986 in Alabama by David Martin, who helped grow the chain to 70 stores. There are now a mere 30 outlets spread across a dozen Southern and Midwestern states.
According to a recent story in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the chain shut down 10 stores over the last 18 months for under-performing and failing to comply with company standards. Chief Operating Officer Peter Petrosian told the paper that Steak-Out plans to revitalize its operations by recruiting more franchisees like Kime, who's spent 17 years in the restaurant business.
Fall is full of some of my favorite ingredients, and the colors and textures of all the seasonal fruits and vegetables create amazing salads. Grilling pears and apples adds a smoky flavor, and a good quality cheese and simple dressing brings the dish together. You can top salads with toasted nuts, pomegranate seeds or even pumpkin seeds. Grilled portobello mushrooms also lend a nice, earthy flavor during the cooler months.
Get creative with seasonal ingredients, buy local and use fall nights to create delicious grilled dinners for your family and friends.

KFC will once again hand out free pieces of its Kentucky Grilled Chicken on Monday, Oct. 26, in a promotion hailed as "UNFry Day."
Customers can stop by KFC locations throughout the day on Monday and receive a free piece of Kentucky Grilled Chicken. No coupon is required.
"Already, more than 60 million Americans have joined 'Grilled Nation' by trying our new Kentucky Grilled Chicken," KFC spokesman Rick Maynard tells Slashfood. "But we're not satisfied with just 60 million, so we're giving away free KGC again."

And there are so many ingredients that complement winter squash -- from sage and thyme to sweeter flavors like orange, maple and bourbon. Even sausage and bacon are perfect matches for this fall favorite.
Grilled winter squash make a nice addition to everything from risotto to salads and can be a great side to serve with roasted meats or as a main vegetarian dish. Some of my favorite cheeses -- like goat, blue cheese and feta -- round out the smoky sweetness for melt-in-your-mouth flavor.
