Today we bring you a great dinner recipe – Chicken Skewers with Bacon Ranch Coleslaw. The secrets to this incredibly flavored dish are 3 products from Tony Chachere’s Creole Cuisine; original creole seasoning, creole style ranch salad dressing, creole style chicken 30-minute marinade. The ranch salad dressing transforms your coleslaw into a more flavorful side that blends well with the chicken, onion skewers, and pepper.

While the chicken is marinating, proceed to make a creamy, luscious improvement on the regular coleslaw. The coleslaw is made from the simple combination of red onion, carrots, bacon, green peppers, red and green cabbage, and a little granulated sugar all whipped into Tony’s creole style ranch dressing.
