Summer Share A Coke Gift Idea with Chicken Bacon Kebabs Recipe #IceColdSummerMoments

There's nothing quite like sharing an ice cold Coca-Cola™ with family and friends during the summer! A lot of my family will be camping in their fancy trailers and tents this summer, so I decided to put together a "cool" camping-themed gift basket filled with all kinds of goodies to help them enjoy their summer adventures to the fullest!

Share a Coke is back with 1,000 new Share A Coke names featuring first AND last names this year! I was able to find all the names I needed (and more) for our "cool" camping gift basket. I also grabbed a Coca-Cola Zero™ with my husband's name on it so he didn't feel left out!

We found everything we needed for our "cool" gift basket at Target, including the Share A Coke bottles! I'm always so excited to see all of the fun and colorful items you can add to the cooler (including awesome cooler designs) in the summer displays in Target.

We're also going to include a recipe card and ingredients to make Chicken Bacon Kebabs for our friends to make while their camping this summer!

Cut a chicken breast into 1-inch pieces. Place into a bowl and pour about 1/4 cup over the chicken and stir until the chicken is coated. Let the chicken marinate for at least 30 minutes. You can also cover and place in the refrigerator overnight to let it really absorb that Coca-Cola flavor!

To assemble the skewer, first stick the end of a slice of thick-cut bacon onto the skewer. Place a piece of chicken, then fold the bacon over it and skewer it as well. Keep repeating until you get to the other end of the bacon.

*Feel free to also incorporate vegetables, pineapple, and other meats onto this kebab. My husband is allergic to most fruits and vegetables, so we kept things simple with just the chicken and bacon.

Place the skewers onto the preheated grill and cook for about 5-8 minutes per side, or until completely cooked through. Enjoy immediately, or brush lightly in a barbecue sauce and place on the grill for another couple of minutes.

I think these kebabs will be perfect for Memorial Day, Father’s Day, and Fourth of July. Actually, they are great for really any occasion you can make up to grill: think summer pool parties, graduation parties, camping, random weekdays... The point is, you just need to try them!
