It’s that time of year to break out the skewers to make kabobs. Kabobs are a popular summertime food that is synonymous with summer.

They broiled chicken kabobs are easy to make, and easily interchangeable to your tastes. Pretty much any meats or veggies work. While kabobs are an excellent food for the grill, they can also be cooked indoors without a grill.

Popping the kabobs for a quick broil in the oven is also a great and efficient way to cook them.

What is broiling?

Broiling is cooking by exposing food to direct radiant heat. Broiling differs from roasting and baking in that the food is turned during the process so as to cook one side at a time.

How to make this recipe

1 – Place the olive oil, soy sauce, honey, garlic, and salt and pepper into a large bowl, or resealable storage bag. Combine well.

2 – Add the chicken and all the vegetables to the marinade. Toss to coat in the marinade.

3 – Cover bowl, or zip resealable storage bag, and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes. Up to 8 hours if desired.

4 – While the chicken and vegetables are marinating, soak skewers in cold water, at least 30 minutes.

5 – Preheat broiler to high, and let preheat for at least 15-20 minutes.

6 – Turn the oven onto high broil for about 15-20 minutes before broiling to ensure the oven is nice and hot.

7 – Line a baking sheet with foil and arrange the kabobs evenly across the baking sheet.

8 – Broil on one side for 4 minutes, then flip all the kabobs over and broil for another 5 minutes.  

Tip – while the chicken and vegetables are marinating, soak the skewers in water for at least 30 minutes. Soaking the skewers before cooking helps prevent the skewers from becoming black and charred.

These are so easy to make. I love how they turn out slightly charred on the edges. It feels like cooking on the grill, even when it's too cold outside.

These look fabulous! Thankfully I live in AZ and can still run outside and grill so I won't have to wait till next summer to give these a try!
