These simple grilled chicken and veggie kabobs are ready in under 30 minutes and are guaranteed to be hit whether it’s Father’s Day, the 4th of July or any other summer weekend. Recipe sponsored by Eat Smart. All opinions are our own.

We love using the grill, especially in the summer. There is just something about a summer cookout that brings the family together.

Get older kids involved with helping to assemble the skewers with their favorite veggies. We love this combo of peppers, onions, and zucchini for bright and colorful chicken kebobs. Other great additions include mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, fresh pineapple, or eggplant.

To assemble your chicken kabobs you will slide on the vegetables one at a time, then the chicken. Repeat this process until the skewer is full, but you still have room on each end to pick it up. We brushed our chicken with Italian dressing for a bit of extra added flavor, it’s easy and we had it in the house, feel free to experiment with your favorite marinades.

You can use bamboo skewers or metal skewers to make your grilled chicken and veggie kabobs. If you use bamboo skewers, remember to soak them before using. It is recommended to soak your bamboo skewers in water for at least 30 minutes, but you can soak them overnight. Soaking your bamboo skewers before using them allows them to soak up some of that moisture so they won’t burn on the grill.

Once your kabobs are assembled, they only take about 15 minutes on the grill, meaning you will have a nutritious meal ready to serve the family in under 30 minutes! We love it when that happens 🙂

Nutrition Tip: Vitamin C-rich foods like bell peppers have a superpower; When eaten with foods containing iron (like chicken), they help the body soak up even more of the mineral.

We love to pair these grilled kabobs with a fresh and easy side dish, like a simple salad. Eat Smart® Chopped Salad Kits include 100% clean ingredients and everything you need to assemble a tasty salad is included in the bag. Just mix and serve! Then get back to spending time with family and friends.
