Why You’ll Love This Recipe
You will love this simple Grilled Chicken Kabobs recipe because it’s incredibly easy and healthy! Whenever it’s grilling season, I try to use the grill as much as possible. And this healthy chicken kabob recipe makes grilling okay any night of the week!
I created this recipe with my friends at Organic Prairie using their amazing Organic Chicken Breasts. If you haven’t ordered meat online yet, what are you waiting for? Organic Prairie was the first organic meat company in the US, and they care about giving their animals the best life, and the meat they produce. We order online all the time and have it shipped to our house, which makes finding organic meat no problem no matter where you live!
Do I need a grill to make this recipe?
No! You can easily make this healthy chicken kabob recipe on the grill. But you do not need one. I provide instructions for making this recipe inside in your cast iron skillet and oven.
Can I use other veggies?
Yes! If you want to use different vegetables you can. Zucchini or squash would be really good with these, and so would grape tomatoes!
What else can I serve with these simple Grilled Chicken Kabobs?
You can serve these with rice, quinoa, homemade bread like my Simple French Baguettes, or even chips or pretzels if you are having a BBQ!
What is the best organic barbecue sauce?
My favorite, and what I like to eat these with is the Kinder’s Organic Mild BBQ Sauce. You can serve them with any BBQ sauce you like, but this is my fave!

Why go organic?
You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you’re making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don’t need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.
Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it’s already a healthy recipe, or you’re already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn’t mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
Simple Grilled Chicken KabobsDifficulty: Easy
Try this recipe for simple Grilled Chicken Kabobs. I use a variety of veggies and chicken breasts for a healthy and easy dinner that you can make any night of the week!
2 teaspoons organic poultry seasoning
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 teaspoon organic black pepper
1/2 teaspoon organic thyme
4 organic bell peppers, assorted colors
8 ounces organic mushrooms
1 organic red onion
1 pound Organic Prairie Chicken Breasts
1/4 cup organic extra virgin olive oil
- In a small bowl, add the poultry seasoning, fine sea salt, black pepper, and thyme and mix together. Set aside. Add the olive oil to another small bowl, set aside.
- Cut bell peppers into 2-inch squares. Trim the stems off the mushrooms. Cut the onion in quarters, reserving the large pieces. Cut the chicken into 2-inch cubes.
- To make the kabobs: Start with a pepper, add onion, chicken, mushroom, and pepper. Repeat until all the chicken and veggies have been skewered. You should have about 3 to 4 pieces of chicken per kabob and about 8 kabobs total. A tip for the ends of the chicken breast where it’s thin, fold it over to create a larger chunk!
- Using a pastry brush, brush olive oil on the kabobs, making sure to rotate to brush each side. Sprinkle the spice mix on top and rotate to season each side.
- Heat grill to high, about 350°F to 400°F. Place kabobs on the grill and cover. Cook for about 3 minutes, rotate, and continue to do that until all sides have been grilled. Heat until internal temperature is 165°F. (Alternatively if you’re not grilling, preheat the oven to 400°F. Heat a cast iron skillet to medium/high. Add kabobs and sear each side. Transfer to the oven and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until internal temperature is 165°F.)
- Serve immediately with BBQ or dipping sauce, if desired.
- High Altitude – Follow the recipe as noted.
