Marinade ingredients

  • ½ cup Vegetable Oil
  • ¼ cup Red Wine Vinegar
  • ¼ cup Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon diced Ginger
  • 2 medium Garlic Cloves , diced

Chicken Kabob ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless Chicken Breasts rinsed, patted dry with paper towel and cut into 1 ¼ inch cubes
  • 2 large Bell Peppers (any colors), seeded and cut into 1-inch squares
  • 8 ounces Cremini Mushrooms , cleaned by gently rubbing with a damp paper towel
  • 1 large Red Onion , cut into 1-inch squares


  • Combine the marinade ingredients in a zipper close gallon plastic bag. Seal bag, and shake vigorously to combine.
  • Add the chicken, peppers, mushrooms and onion to the bag; squeeze out as much air as possible and seal. Massage the bag contents to coat the meat and vegetables with the marinade. Refrigerate overnight.
  • Remove the marinated ingredients and discard the marinade. Tip: the bag can be poured out into a colander allow excess marinade to drain from ingredients into the sink.
  • Thread 10-12 skewers with the chicken and vegetables, alternating on the skewers and leaving about 3 inches at the blunt end. Allow a bit of space between ingredients (refer to photos for an example).
  • Heat the grill to medium heat (around 350 degrees).
  • Place skewers on the grill with a strip of foil underneath the end of the skewer if bamboo. Close the lid and allow kabobs to cook 10-15 minutes, rotating them on each side during the cooking (2-3 minutes a side).
  • Check to ensure the chicken has no pink color in the middle before removing all the skewers from these grill. Allow to sit 5 minutes before serving.
