Easy and Juicy Grilled Chicken Kabobs with Vegetables

Chicken Skewers are a staple in our house during the summertime because who doesn’t love juicy chicken and crispy grilled vegetables? It’s one of the many easy dinner recipes that we’re whipping up, and everyone keeps asking for more.

This is a classic recipe, but there are so many variations. You can use turkey meat and your favorite vegetables and dried herbs. Just use the ingredients you have!

Ingredients for Grilled Chicken Kabobs

The ingredients needed to make these grilled chicken skewers are staples in our kitchen, and I bet in yours too. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Boneless chicken breast – I chose to use fresh chicken breast, but you can use frozen chicken breast. Just completely thaw it before using, and it will be fantastic. Turkey Breast or Chicken Thighs are also an excellent option for making these delicious chicken skewers.
  • Olive oil & Vinnegar: I love to marinate the meat before grilling because it makes it so much tender and juicy. It also adds a slightly sweet and tangy taste that I love.
  • Vegetables: I used a combo of my favorite low carb vegetables: red bell pepper, red onion, zucchini.
  • Seasonings: Here’s where you can get creative. I used paprika, garlic, powder, oregano, salt, and pepper – pretty basic. Feel free to swap any of these with your favorite herbs.

How to Make the Juiciest Chicken Kabobs?

It’s important to marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes, but not for more than 3 hours. This recipe’s perfect for indoor or outdoor grilling. I even provide instructions on how to bake these in the oven.

  1. Chop the chicken and vegetables. Select your favorite veggies and cut them into 1-inch pieces. Do the same with the chicken.
  2. Marinate the chicken. Place all the chicken pieces into a large bowl, season and toss well using your hands. Massaging the chicken really helps and it’s easier to distribute the seasonings evenly.
  3. Thread the chicken onto the skewers alternating the meat and the vegetables. Try not to crowd the chicken and vegetables together, to make sure that the meat will evenly cook.
  4. Prepare the grill. Heat your grill to medium-high heat and then place the chicken. Grill for a 15-20 minutes turning them from time to time to evenly cook. The chicken is cooked when it reaches an inner temperature of 165F.
  5. Serve warm with a side salad or with creamy cauliflower mashed potatoes (my favorite!)

What Skewers to Use?

You can use reusable metal skewers or wooden skewers.

It’s essential to soak the wooden skewers in cold water for at least 30 minutes to keep them for burning or catching on fire.  

If using metal skewers, be sure to handle them with tongs because they get extremely hot and you don’t want to get burned. Carefully remove them from the grill when they are done.
