Chicken Skewers


  • 1.5 lbs chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
  • Assorted vegetables (such as bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, zucchini)
  • Wooden skewers
  • Olive oil (for marinating)
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • Optional: your favorite marinade or seasoning blend


  • Slice the chicken thighs into bite-sized pieces and place them in a large bowl.
  • Season the chicken with salt, pepper and your choice of marinade or seasoning blend. Mix well to ensure the chicken is evenly coated.
  • Cover the bowl and refrigerate overnight to allow the chicken to marinate and develop flavor.
  • If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for at least half an hour before grilling to prevent them from burning.
  • Prepare the vegetables by cutting them into pieces roughly the same size as the chicken. You can also buy pre-cut vegetables to make this easier.
  • Assemble the skewers by alternating pieces of chicken and vegetables.
  • Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  • Place the skewers on the grill and cook for about 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
  • Pack a digital thermometer and use it to ensure the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F. Take the temperature of the thickest piece to ensure it’s cooked thoroughly.
  • Once cooked, remove the skewers from the grill and serve hot.
