Chicken Kabobs have got to be one of the easiest things you can ever put on the grill! But are you making the most of these delicious snacks? There are so many different combinations you can make. Ranging from beef, lamb and Chicken to courgette, tomato and onion. The possibilities are almost endless and we all love to walk around the yard with a kabob whilst we wait for the main event to come off the smoker.
Today we are going to show you how we make our kabobs and we are sure you are going to be impressed when you try them. The first thing you need to do is work out how many kabobs you plan to cook and buy enough chicken breast to match up with that. Cut the chicken into decent size cubes. Big enough for a decent bite.
Place the chicken in a bag. If you have one of those zip lock ones then even better. With the chicken in the bad you should add a cup of water, juice from two lemons and some minced cloves of garlic. I like to use three cloves but if you want it to have a stronger garlic taste then add more. Season with salt and pepper close the bag and leave it in the fridge overnight.
Most people use wooden skewers so I am assuming you are as well. If not then the next step is not important. Take the wooden skewers and soak them in water for at least 30 minutes. This will help to cut down on the amount of burning when the skewers are on the grill.
For these skewers I used bell peppers and red onion because I love them both. For the peppers I used red, green and yellow to mix in the flavors, and also make it look better when they are cooked.
Take the skewers out of the water and you are ready to put the kabobs together. Alternate pepper, chicken and onion until the skewers are full. If you have avocado oil drizzle a small amount on each kabob and liberally season with your favorite garlic seasoning. If you do not have avocado oil then olive oil will will work almost as well.
Bring your grill up to 350 degrees and you are ready to place the kabobs on the grill. Place your temperature probe into the thickest piece of chicken you can find and grill until you reach an internal temperature of 150 degrees. At this point you want to crank the grill up to 450 degrees and cook the chicken until the internal temperature is 165 degrees. This will put a beautiful char on the outside of the kabobs.
When this is finished the kabobs are ready for eating.
We hope you enjoyed this and let us know in the comments how they turned out for you?
