It’s a simple fact: meat on a stick is more fun to eat than meat off of a stick. Am I right? If you love making kabobs but never think to make them or always forget to soak the dang wooden skewers hours in advance, I’d like to introduce you to my favorite stainless steel flexible grilling skewers.

My mom gave them to me for Christmas many years ago and they just make dinner time more fun, end of story. No soaking required, just chop up whatever meat and vegetables you have on hand and get to skewering!

This simple yet flavorful lemon garlic marinade is my go-to weeknight marinade and it will soon become yours. Lemon juice is a natural meat tenderizer and fresh, raw garlic gives all of those boring vegetables and boneless chicken breasts a one-way ticket to Flavortown.

We happened to have peppers and onions on hand but zucchini, eggplant or portobello mushrooms would work well too. The options are endless.

Your fork is waiting.

Chicken Kabobs

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut in cubes)
  • 2 bell peppers (seeded and cut in 2 inch pieces)
  • 1 large onion (cut in 2 inch pieces)

Lemon Garlic Marinade


  • Place cubed chicken, bell peppers and onion chunks into one large bowl and set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together marinade: lemon juice through chili flakes. Drizzle marinade over the chicken and vegetables. Toss to coat.
  • Let chicken and vegetables marinade for 20 minutes or room temperature or refrigerated for 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  • Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat and thread meat and vegetables on to kabobs, alternating between each. (I love these flexible stainless steel kabobs!)
  • Grill 2-3 minutes per side, rotating four times, or until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender.

  1. I made these and love, love them. I just bought a foodi grill so I can make them anytime. Since olive oil is not recommended for that grill, can I use canola oil or Gravesend oil?
