  • How to Grill Chicken Kabobs

    Add the soy sauce, cider vinegar, honey, canola oil, green onions, and garlic powder to a blender or food processor. Blend for 15 seconds and set aside.

    Pour half the marinade along with the chicken chunks in one resealable plastic bag. In another large resealable bag pour the other half of the marinade along with the mushroom halves, tomatoes, onion pieces, bell pepper pieces, and pineapple chunks. Seal each bag and shake to coat contents. Open, squeeze out excess air, reseal and refrigerate no more than 2 hours.

    Clean and preheat your outdoor grill for high heat (600 - 800 degrees F). If you're using charcoal, pile it up on only one side of your grill.

    Grilling Tip:
    A charcoal grill is ready for high heat when you can hold the palm of your hand two inches above the grate for only 1 - 2 seconds before pulling away.

    Wipe the grill grate with olive oil, using a rag or paper towel. This will keep your chicken kabobs from sticking to the bbq during the grilling process. Cooking spray also works well for this.

    Wrap the chicken chunks with bacon and thread onto skewers so that the bacon is secured. On separate skewers alternate the vegetables and pineapple.

    Grilling Tip:
    We recommend grilling the vegetables and pineapple separately from the chicken kabobs to avoid burning the veggies while waiting for the chicken to cook thoroughly. Of course if you prefer to have everything on one skewer then just alternate chicken, vegetables, and fruit on each skewer and grill together.

    Place your bacon wrapped sweet bbq chicken kabobs on the grill in an organized manner with a little room between each kabob to allow air to circulate. If you're using charcoal, place chicken kabobs directly over the coals. Cover grill.

    Grill for about 5 minutes or until good grill marks appear. Then flip each kabob over and grill for 3 minutes more.

    Now that you've seared your grilled chicken kabobs, turn the heat down to medium if you're gas grilling. If you're using charcoal, move the kabobs to indirect heat (the side of your grill with no coals). Brush with leftover marinade.

    Add vegetable kabobs. Cover grill.

    Continue grilling 3 - 5 more minutes. Flip and brush kabobs with more marinade. Cover and grill 3 - 5 more minutes.

    Your chicken kabobs are done when the juices run clear (internal temperature should be 170 - 180 degrees F). Your veggies should be crisp and tender.
