It is time to add some color to your grill with some Chicken Shish Kabobs! A shish kabob is typically a skewer of meat and vegetables that is grilled. The fun part about Shish Kabobs is that you can make them with just about any meat or vegetable. From bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, steak, and chicken. For these Shish Kabobs I went with some chicken for the meat and a colorful array of vegetables including red, green, and purple bell peppers, and some onion. I love to eat grilled vegetables they taste very good. Read below how I made this recipe but get creative with how you want to make your Shish Kabobs!
• 4 – 5 pounds of Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
• 1 Large Green Pepper
• 2 Small Red Peppers
• 2 Small Purple Peppers
• 2 Spanish Onions
• 2 Bottle of Lawry’s Louisiana Red Pepper Marinade (you can use any marinating sauce you would like, anything from teriyaki, Italian dressing…)
Items used to make this recipe
• Metal Skewers or Wood Skewers
• Large Platter
• Cutting Board
• Grill Wok
• 2 Zip Lock bags
1. OK get ready for some prepwork. First cut up your chicken breat into bite size chunks and throw them into a zip lock bag. Then pour in enough marinade to cover all of the chicken. Place in the fridge to marinate.
2. Next cut up your bell peppers and onions into small pieces about 1 inch by 1 inch in size. Then place all of your vegetables into a zip lock bag and pour in your marinade to cover the vegetables. Place your chicken and vegetables in the fridge to marinate for at least 30 minutes. I let mine marinate over night cause I really like when the flavor soaks in.
3. After your vegetables and chicken are done marinating it is time to start kabobing them. You can do this any way that you would like but I normally do a two different vegetables and then a piece of chicken. So on and so on. Another option if you have a grill wok is to just throw them in your wok and cook everything up that way. That will save you time from having to kabob everything which can be time consuming. For this recipe I did it both ways.
4. Now you have to just grill everything up. Be sure to turn your Shish Kabobs ever now and then so that they cook evenly. On the right side of the grill you can see that I am using the grill wok. It is a major time saver. Just be sure to move everything around in the wok so that everything will cook evenly. To make sure your chicken is cooked properly you can cut open a few pieces and make sure there is no pink on the inside.
Here we go you just need to de-kabob and start eating! This is one of my favorite meals to eat cause it is fairly good for you and it is supper tasty. I really like grilled peppers on the grill.
