Although it’s mid-September most of the country is officially starting to cool down. Believe it or not we are getting little tiny breaks in our hot Florida weather here. We love to grill in our home, and are fortunate to be able to grill year round. Every now and then we get crazy and switch it up and make grilled chicken skewers. I mean, you can’t go wrong with meat on a stick!

I always love to experiment and come up with new flavor creations to keep my families palate energized. Fresh figs are a fruit that I do not normally cook with, but I was recently challenged to come up with a grilled chicken recipe using Litehouse® Spiced Fig Apple Cider Vinaigrette Dressing. I was excited to see what I could create. That’s when I brainstormed these Grilled Spiced Fig Chicken Skewers.

What do figs taste like?

For those who have never consumed grilled figs you might be wondering what they taste like. When cooked, figs have a similar texture to grilled squash. They have a thin layer of skin and a soft fleshy body just like squash have. Depending on the variety will depend how sweet your fig is.
