Let’s make the marinade.

Whisk together in a large mixing bowl the olive oil, vinegar, honey, minced garlic and seasonings. Set aside.

How to grill chicken kabobs:

First, get the veggies and chicken ready. Cut the chicken into small pieces but not too small. I like to keep them chunky so they don’t fall off the skewers. Cut the veggies and set them aside.

Tip: Go ahead and soak your skewers in water for 20 minutes if you are using wooden ones. This will prevent them from burning on the grill.  before you grill the so they don’t burn

Second, marinade in the chicken kabob marinade for 30 minutes to 3 hours. The longer the better for the flavors to really soak in.

Next, preheat the grill so it gets nice and hot.

Add the chicken to skewers (you can use wooden skewers but we bought some metal skewers on Amazon and they’re great). At this point, you can also add other ingredients like the red onion, zucchini, squash and red bell peppers.

How long to grill chicken kabobs:

Grill on the grill, rotating them often for about 15 minutes until chicken is cooked through. We use grilling tongs so we didn’t burn our hand. I have also heard that these grilling mitts work great.

The time may vary slightly depending on how large you cut the pieces of chicken and how thick each piece is.

Serve with your favorite sides!

  • Cut the chicken into 1-2 inch pieces. Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, honey, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.

    These are my family’s absolutely favorite kabobs. Sometimes simple is best.
    We grill them up with smoked sausage, zucchini, bell peppers, onions & grape tomatoes. I served it with a Deviled Egg Macaroni Salad for a perfect summer meal.
