Grilled chicken kebabs

At last we were able to get a decent evening here in NJ to get the grill out. Today I decided to use my charcoal grill. The flavor of the food is more distinctive so when I decided to make this grilled chicken kebabs I was really excited to taste the end product.

Believe or not grilling on a charcoal grill it is easier than you think.

I decided to use Kingsford® Original Briquets. These are ready in just 15 minutes and have long burn time which allows for more edges for faster lighting.

Before you light the briquets in your charcoal grill just make sure:

    • If you have any leftover ash in your grill dispose of it.
    • Clean the grill grates.
    • Place the briquets in a mountain shape, just like in the picture below and light them up.
    • Once the briquets have been burning for 15 minutes and are a pale grey color they are ready to be used. Spread them out and place the grill grate over the briquets.
    • Preheat your grill grates and oil them slightly to make sure your food won’t stick to it. Now your grill is ready for action!

This grilled chicken kebab recipe it is so simple yet just plain amazing. The recipe for the marinade was passed down to me from my aunt. It is one of her grilled marinade recipe staples so be sure you will like it. She is also a great cook and she knows her stuff.

If you have any leftovers you can just leave it in the same plate you served the kabobs in and use Glad Press‘n Seal to cover them. I love this product because not only it is BPA free but because it seals tightly on a variety of surfaces including paper, plastic, metal and wood. It is so convenient.

You can buy all of these products, Kingsford Original Briquets and Glad Press‘n Seal and your local Walmart. I love how Walmart makes it easy to get everything you need to throw the perfect summer BBQ.

I really hope you get to make this grilled chicken kebabs. You can use any other veggies like onions but I wouldn’t recommend tomatoes or mushrooms, as these get cooked rather quickly and they might disintegrate in the process. You can certainly also use beef in place of chicken but for us chicken is just the best.

Grilled chicken kebabs

Carolyn's original recipe

Yield: 5 servings 10 kebabs

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 3-4 lbs chicken breast, cubed
  • 3 peppers, colors of choice, quartered
  • 2 large zucchinis, quartered




Place the kebab ingredients in a large bowl. You are going to need a pretty large bowl.

Add the marinade ingredients and toss to combine. Let the mixture sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes tossing every 10 minutes or so. Alternatively you can marinade overnight covered in the refrigerator.

Alternate chicken and 2-3 pieces of veggies repeating until you have about 3-4 pieces of chicken on each skewer. Repeat until you have run out of veggies and chicken. I got 10 skewers.

Once your grill is ready place skewers in the grill and cook on each side for 4-5 minutes depending on how far you have placed the grill grate from the heat.

Serve immediately.
