How Do You Grill Chicken Kabobs?
The first step is to marinate the meat, which is the most essential step that you cannot miss since it is the secret to the juiciness and flavors that penetrate the meat. The marinade for chicken kabobs is easy to make: mix together the marinade ingredients, throw in the chicken and vegetables, and let aside for at least an hour.
Now thread the marinated chicken and vegetables onto your skewers, place them on the grill, and cook for 5-10 minutes on each side, and your grilled chicken kabobs are done.
Prepare the chicken for the kabobs ahead of time.
In this recipe, I used chicken thighs, but you may use boneless skinless chicken breasts instead, but bear in mind that they will dry up more rapidly than thighs when grilled.
- Thaw the chicken before cutting — cutting through the core of frozen chicken will be tough.
- Make enough room for the skewers to pass through – you may cut through the chicken pieces with a sharp knife.
- Before cutting, remove any excess fat or skin from the chicken and chop it into even pieces.
How long should the marinade for the chicken kabobs be kept?
I strongly advise marinating for at least 30 minutes to an hour. The longer you store it, the more taste it will have. Soak up as much chicken and vegetables as you can for up to 8-12 hours.
How Long Do Chicken Kabobs Take to Cook on the Grill?
Cooking time may vary depending on your grill’s temperature, but in my experience, the optimum duration is 10-15 minutes overall. Furthermore, keep a careful watch on the kabobs when grilling since the chicken has already been chopped into tiny pieces, and chicken skewers cook much faster than entire chicken breasts.
What Should You Serve with Chicken Kabobs?
Serve with hummus and a side salad, rice pilaf, chopped salad, sweet potato fries or potato wedges, macaroni or fruit salad, tomato cucumber salad, and avocado salad, to name a few.
