Irresistible Chicken Skewers

Yield 12-15 Skewers

How to trick your children (and yourself) to eat their veggies? Thread it onto a skewer! What happens when you sneak pieces of chicken in there, and slather it in your favorite barbecue sauce? Walla! It’s a meal on a stick! The best part of this recipe is that it can be thrown on the outdoor barbecue or baked in your indoor oven for equally scrumptious results.

Time to dig in!


6 pieces of boneless chicken breast, cubed
1 cup multi-colored grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup pearl onions, peeled
1 cup button mushrooms
1 zucchini, sliced into thin rounds
1 yellow squash, sliced into thin rounds


 ¼ cup oil
1/2 cup barbecue sauce (your favorite brand)
 ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
 ¼ teaspoon onion powder
 ¼ teaspoon salt
 ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika



Whisk the sauce ingredients in a small bowl until well combined.

Place chicken cubes in a shallow pan. Pour the sauce over the chicken cubes and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

When ready to assemble, create a pattern on the skewer. Start with a piece of chicken, slide on one piece of each vegetable, and repeat the pattern until you are about ½ inch from the top.

If using an outdoor barbecue, place on the heated grates and grill for about 10 minutes until desired doneness is achieved.

If baking indoors, place into a shallow baking pan. Preheat the oven to 400⁰F. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Flip over the skewers and bake an additional 5-10 minutes until desired doneness is achieved.
