Marinated BBQ Chicken Kabobs a hot summer night, who wants to cook indoors?  Not me!  So, this fantastic recipe really fits the bill if you want to barbecue, you have chicken breasts on the menu, and you've got a few hours to let your chicken marinate.

We love this dish served with grilled vegetables, rice, and coleslaw.  Enjoy!

  • ½ C olive oil or avocado oil
  • ¼ C low sodium soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 3 T honey
  • 2 T lemon juice
  • 2 large garlic cloves, sliced into thirds, or use 1/4 t garlic powder or to taste
  • ¼ t black pepper
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2-3 large boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1” cubes
  1. In a bowl mix together the oil with soy sauce, honey, lemon juice, garlic slices, black pepper and cayenne. 
  2.  Place the chicken cubes in the bowl and toss to coat with the marinade. 
  3.  Cover and chill for 4 hours. 
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade.  Pour marinade into a saucepan then remove the garlic slices and discard; boil for 10 minutes over medium-low heat (start timing the 10 minutes after boiling starts).
  5. Thread the chicken onto wooden skewers that have been soaked in cold water for 30 minutes. 
  6. Place the skewers on a grill and cook for 18-20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through (being careful not to overcook!), basting with cooked marinade during the last 10-12 minutes of cooking.  Note: Chicken is done when no longer pink and juices run clear.
