Whether you’re looking for a kabob recipe that’s sure to be a hit at a BBQ, or to make a healthy and flavorful dinner for the family that everyone will enjoy, these grilled chicken kabobs with vegetables are exactly what you need. The chicken marinates in a delicious mix of flavors and the vegetables are tossed in an olive oil-garlic mixture. Then the chicken and vegetables are grilled and brushed with a yogurt/olive oil mixture for serving. All of these fantastic flavors combine beautifully to turn out a truly appetizing dish that you’ll make again and again. Share this recipe with friends and family on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter after you’ve made it.
Start by making the marinade by mixing together Cabot Lowfat Plain Greek Yogurt (or Cabot Plain Greek Yogurt), olive oil, lemon or lime juice, Worcestershire, garlic, thyme, and basil until well blended. Then add the hot sauce (such as Sriracha chili sauce), salt, and pepper to taste. Reserve ¼ cup of the marinade for later.
Once the marinade is made, cut chicken breasts into 2-inch pieces and place in the remaining marinade, stirring to ensure all pieces are coated. Cover and refrigerate for four hours or more. In the meantime, mix remaining garlic and olive oil and set aside. After chicken has marinated, divide the pieces among 4 skewers and preheat grill to medium-high.
Toss vegetables in the olive-oil garlic mixture and thread on 4 additional skewers. Grill chicken and vegetable skewers until cooked through. Before serving, combine reserved marinade with any remaining garlic oil and brush both the chicken and vegetables. Then help yourself - you won’t believe the amazing flavor such a healthy dish can bring!
