Chicken Shish Kebabs


Okay, really, is it spelled “kebab” or “kabob?” What is politically correct here? Is this the same as you saying “po-tay-to” and I say “po-tah-do.” Oh, this is getting just plain silly now. What is not silly are chicken shish kebabs and such an easy recipe to make this time of year, especially if thrown on the barbecue!


Hard to believe it is Wednesday – it’s hard to believe it is 1/2 way through 2020 – and I have, finally, gotten my act together to share this recipe that I made over the 4th of July weekend. There is something about shish kebobs that are fun, and they turn a barbecue into a colorful masterpiece. Plus, you can put your creative spin on it as well!

The only downfall? Those darn wooden sticks! They are so f-ing sharp! Does not matter how careful I am sliding on the various pieces of the kebab, I still have the battle wounds left. All good cooks have remnants of their work, right?

This recipe can be prepped the day before, or on the same day – your choice! It really has to do with how long you want to marinate the protein & veggies.

One of my absolute go-to’s when it comes to purchasing protein is my monthly subscription of Butcher Box! Not only is affordable – you can choose from 2 box sizes – it is convenient and the quality is unbeatable. Choose from chicken, beef, pork, seafood, and more! Sustainably sourced, grass-fed, heritage-bred, free-range, etc. Even better, you can customize ALL. I get a custom box where I can pick what I want but you can also choose one that is mixed (Butcher Box will select for you), a combination of beef & pork, beef & chicken, or all beef.

Due to Covid-19, there is a waitlist to be part of their subscription plan (this can be customized to 2, 4, 6, or 8 week shipments) but make sure to check their site often, and I promise to keep you updated as well. This will include a $30 discount too! Man, I am already excited about my next box, and I just got July’s LAST WEEK! It’s the little things in life!

Let’s get grilling! FYI: These pair beautifully with my “Wasted Watermelon Cocktails”& serve with your veggie of choice!

Voila, chicken shish kebabs for the win! A fabulous Summer feast that is satisfying, delicious, and light! Enjoy!
