Marinated Chicken Kabobs


This great summer chicken kabobs recipe was given to me by a friend years ago. You can put any vegetables you want on the skewers. Don't be worried when you see the light corn syrup in the ingredients; it comes together great and is a nice change. You can even skip the vegetables and just skewer the chicken.

  • 1 cup vegetable oil

  • ½ cup soy sauce

  • ½ cup light corn syrup

  • ¼ cup lemon juice

  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt, or to taste

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces

  • 2 onions, quartered

  • 1 (8 ounce) package fresh chopped mushrooms

  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into large chunks


  1. Whisk together vegetable oil, soy sauce, light corn syrup, lemon juice, sesame seeds, garlic powder, and garlic salt in a medium bowl. Add chicken; stir to coat. Cover the bowl and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.

  3. Thread chicken onto skewers alternately with onions, mushrooms, and bell pepper. Pour marinade into a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook until slightly thickened, 5 to 10 minutes.

  4. Place skewers on the preheated grill; cook, turning frequently, until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear, 15 to 20 minutes. Baste frequently with boiled marinade during the last 10 minutes.
