How long to grill chicken kabobs?

Smoked Chicken Kabobs

These will take about 20-25 minutes. Use a meat thermometer to make sure that your chicken is cooked to 165 degrees. Let rest for at least 5 minutes after cooking to let the juices redistribute. Don’t turn your grill up any higher than 350 as you don’t want the brown sugar in the marinade to burn.

Chicken Kabob Marinade

This store bought teriyaki garlic marinade is delicious. I use the Kikkoman brand and find it at any grocery store. If you have plain teriyaki sauce, just add 3 cloves of minced garlic to the sauce and let marinade. Marinade for at least 1 hour, but you can even let it sit over night!

Grilled Chicken Kabobs with Vegetables

I used portabella mushrooms, peppers, onions, and pineapple on my skewers, but you could definitely substitute to your taste. If you have non- meat eaters coming, you could make these vegetarian kabobs by increasing the amount of portabella mushrooms and leaving out the chicken!

What are you looking forward to cooking on the grill the most this summer? I will be making these grilled chicken kabobs again and again!

  1. Pour ¾ of the garlic teriyaki into a sealable container. Add the cubed chicken and allow to marinate at least 1 hour in the fridge (sometimes we’ll start this in the morning and let it marinate all day), making sure to coat all of the chicken.
