How to make Chicken kabob recipe:

- Marinade in the chicken kabob marinade for 30 minutes to 3 hours.
- 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.
- 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 but I haven’t personally tried them (yet :)).

Easy Grilled Chicken Kabob Recipe. Only 2 ingredients needed for this marinade for grilled chicken kabobs.This is the best grilled BBQ Chicken Kabob recipe.
- 1 lb boneless chicken breasts (approximately 2-3 chicken breasts)
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 2 tsp honey
- 1 Tbsp minced garlic
- 1 tsp Italian seasoning
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 red onion (cut into 1 inch pieces)
- 1 zucchini (sliced into 1/2 inch slices)
- 1 yellow squash (sliced into 1/2 inch slices)
- 1 red bell pepper (deseeded and cut into 1 inch pieces)
- 1 lemon
Cut the chicken into 1-2 inch pieces. Whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, honey, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
Marinade the chicken with the sauce ingredients either in a bowl or a large ziplock bag. Marinade for at least 30 minutes but no more than 2 hours as the vinegar will break down the chicken.
Soak the skewers in water for at least 20 minutes.
Preheat the grill to a medium high heat and spray the grill with a non-stick cooking spray or brush the grates with olive oil to prevent the kabobs from sticking to the grill.
Prepare the kabobs by threading the chicken and veggies onto the wooden skewers until all the chicken and veggies are on the skewers.
Grill the kabobs for approximately 10-15 minutes (turning every few minutes to cook evenly) until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F and the veggies are the tenderness that you prefer.
Remove the kabobs from the grill to a serving plate and serve the lemon over the top of the kabobs.
Serve warm and enjoy!
Refrigerate the leftovers in an air tight container for up to 5 days.
