The Juiciest Chicken Kabobs
The secret to making incredible, juicy and flavorful chicken kabobs is all in the marinade! Grilled chicken can go from great to dry in no time so it’s important to prepare it ahead of time. This grilled chicken recipe uses mayonnaise and a bit of wine to add flavor and to seal in the juices. I recommend marinating the chicken at least 4 hours prior to grilling. If you have the time, marinate the chicken overnight. I season my chicken kabobs with tons of spices, along with fresh dill for an Eastern European twist.
- These kabobs can be assembled on wooden or metal skewers. If using bamboo skewers, make sure to soak them in water for at least an hour to prevent the wood from catching fire. Keep in mind that metal skewers will cook the chicken faster from the inside (the metal heats up); watch the kabobs carefully so the chicken doesn’t overcook.
All The Veggies!
I love my grilled chicken with a side of grilled vegetables and this recipe for kabobs does that so well! I like my kabobs to be at least 50% vegetables and 50% chicken. I love to use green and yellow zucchini, bell peppers, mushrooms and shallots. Feel free to mix up the veggies and use your favorite. You can also try red onion, eggplant, green or yellow peppers, jalapeno, or even tomatoes! This kabob recipe will also work well with just vegetables – the marinade is great for meats and veggies!
Side Dish Ideas!
I love to serve my kabobs with a dipping sauce such as ketchup, chimichurri or hot sauce.
- My BLT Salad is so crunchy and delicious, with cheese, avocado and bacon bits!
- Avocado Chimichurri Sauce is the ultimate dipping sauce for any meat!

Grilled Chicken Kabobs with veggies (video)
- 1 1/2 pounds chicken thigh
- 2 medium zucchinis
- 1 to 2 red bell peppers
- 8 to 10 mushrooms
- 3 to 4 shallots
- 2 to 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup red wine
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon Kosher salt
- 1 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp EACH: garlic powder, onion powder
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/4 tsp ground cumin
- 2 tablespoons fresh dill
- Chop all the veggies into 1×1-inch chunks, not too small and not too large. Do the same with the chicken thighs. Leave small mushrooms whole and halve any larger ones. Drop the veggies and chicken into an extra large mixing bowl.
- Season the chicken and veggies with sauce, wine, mayonnaise and all the spices. Using your hands or two large spoons, toss everything together until the veggies and chicken are well-coated.
- Skewer the veggies and chicken onto bamboo or metal skewers. Preheat outdoor grill to 475F (medium-high heat), or an indoor grill pan over medium heat. Grill the kabobs for approximately 15 minutes, turning every couple of minutes to ensure even cooking. If using outdoor grill, close the lid for faster cooking. If unsure about meat doneness, check the temperature of the chicken with a thermometer; it should read 160F.
- Remove the kabobs from the grill and serve hot with a side of potatoes and/or salad.
Hey, I was wondering if the red wine is a must, or can I substitute it with something else
Hi! You can use chicken broth instead of the red wine 🙂
does the chicken get darker color from the red wine? wondering if ok to substitute with white wine? Thank you!
Hi Luda! No, it doesn’t affect the color of the chicken too much but you can absolutely use white wine, too. Enjoy! 🙂
