Grilled Chicken Kabob recipe
The best part about chicken kabobs is that you decide what you put on them. We added sausage and sweet peppers to our grilled chicken kabobs, but you can add anything or omit anything.
I think that is the one thing that I love about this chicken kabob recipe is how versatile it is. I can make it and you can make it and we have two completely different recipes.
Plus, the kitchen stays cool and mess free. That’s a win in my book! Everyone is happy and the meal is so delicious.
Just 2 ingredients for this Chicken Kabob Marinade:
Now I did marinade my chicken. It makes the chicken so much more packed with flavor and the entire family loved it.
You get something wonderful with each bite. No crazy ingredients here.
How long should you cook chicken kebabs on the grill?
Place on the grill, rotating them completely often for about 15 minutes until chicken is cooked through. This may vary slightly depending on how large you cut the pieces of chicken and how thick it is.
Ingredients for Grilled chicken kabobs:
- 1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
- 1/2 cup of A1 sauce
- of course you will need chicken breasts – about 6 chopped up into bite size junks
Now the sweet BBQ combined with the tangy A1 sauce just makes the best marinade. The chicken is packed with sweet and tangy – it is almost like some sassy chicken that the entire family will love.
It would also be good with soy sauce. Just mix up the marinade in a small bowl. So tasty!
Barbecued chicken is the best! If it stick to the grill add some olive oil spray.
This Grilled Chicken Kabob marinade is our favorite!
How to make Chicken kabob recipe:
- Chop up your chicken into bit sized pieces. You want them chunky so they don’t fall off the kabobs.
- Marinade in the chicken kabob marinade for a few hours or over night. It is certainly not required but recommended. It will taste great either way, but it will be even more flavorful the longer you choose to marinade the chicken.
- Preheat the grill so it gets nice and hot.
- Add the chicken to the metal skewers (we bought our skewers on Amazon). At this point, you can also add other ingredients like peppers and sausage.
- Grill on the grill, rotating them completely 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 :)).
- Serve with your favorite sides!
