Honey Chicken and Vegetable Kabobs

These Honey and Garlic Chicken and Vegetable Kabobs have just the right amount of sweetness from the honey and a zing from the soy sauce and garlic.
Author: Lisa Kerhin

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • cup honey
  • cup soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 ½ lbs chicken tenders
  • 1 large onion
  • 2 red bell peppers
  • 2 green bell peppers
  • Skewers wood or metal

Instructions

  • If you are using wood skewers, soak them in water for 5–10 minutes and set aside. This will prevent them from burning while you are grilling the kabobs.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, honey, soy sauce, garlic, and pepper. Reserve 2 tablespoons of marinade for basting the cooked chicken and vegetables.
  • In a re-sealable plastic bag, place the chicken and marinade – close the bag and make sure the chicken is all coated with the marinade.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
  • Prepare the vegetables by cutting them into 1-inch squares. Season with pepper.
  • Once the chicken has marinated, you can assemble the kabobs. Start with onion, then the bell peppers, and finally chicken.
  • Preheat the grill to medium.
  • Assemble the kabobs starting with a piece of the chicken, then a bell pepper, onion and another bell pepper. Do this twice for each kabob.
  • Place the prepared kabobs on a baking sheet and brush with remaining marinade from the bag.
  • Grill for 15 - 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Skewers (wood or metal)
  • Remove from grill and place on a platter, brush the reserved marinade over the cooked chicken and vegetables.

Notes

If you have extra vegetables after threading your skewers, you can thread them onto additional skewers and grill separately.
You can change up the vegetables to suit your tastes and to what's in season.
Add some ginger or red pepper flakes to the marinade to give it different flavors; it's an easy marinade to change up the flavors.
Also, try adding fresh pineapple chunks to the skewers when grilling.
