Disneyland Bengal BBQ Copycat – Sweet & Sour Kabobs and Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

When Des and I went to Disneyland last month one of our FAVORITE things we ate were the skewers at Bengal BBQ.  Bengal BBQ is located right across from the Tiki Room and they serve the most delicious and fresh food.  Let me tell you, it is such a welcomed treat after eating churros, corn dogs, and ice cream cones.  I knew right away that I needed to re-create this at home.

At the park we ordered Chieftain Chicken Skewer and the Safari Skewer.  The Chieftan Chicken Skewer is a simple chicken kabob in a sweet and sour Polynesian sauce.  The Safari Skewer is asparagus wrapped in bacon.  Both are so dang delicious!

Making Bengal BBQ at Home

For my at-home version I added some bell pepper and pineapple to my chieftain skewers – it makes it feel more rounded for a bbq or dinner.  For the bacon-wrapped asparagus I bought thin cut bacon so it would crisp up nicely on the grill.

Fresh Food in Junk Food Paradise

Sometimes when you spend the day at the theme park you become dehydrated and have a sensitive stomach from all of the exciting rides – so having a simple protein and veggie really hits the spot.  Nothing fried.  Nothing coated in sugar.  Just real, simple, food.

My favorite sweet and sour sauce is the base for the chieftain chicken skewer copycat.  They turned our delicious and even my kids gobbled them right up.  Our family loves skewered food for dinner.  They are always bursting with flavor and full of fresh ingredients.  So, I have two recommendations for you.  The next time you are at Disney – be sure to consult our Eating Guide, and second – make these skewers this weekend!  They won’t disappoint!
