Kabobs are a really easy and delicious meal for lunch or dinner time. It really doesn’t take too much effort or time. This recipe I made for father’s day, we spent the day grilling with family. It was a recipe that didn’t take too much time away from socializing while preparing the meal. We went to Northgate to gather all our ingredients for a really low price! Let’s get into it.
To start, these are the ingredients you need to marinate the chicken. We let the chicken marinate overnight but at least an hour would do. (Don’t panic if you have no time to let it sit, its no biggie)
Mix up all the ingredients and let marinate in the fridge covered or in a Ziploc bag.
Next, up the steak. We went really simple and just used a packet mix and the ingredients it called for. You can do this with the chicken as well.
Again, cover or put in a Ziploc bag and let marinate in the fridge.
While the meats marinate, now is a good time to cut up the vegetables. You can pick any of your favorites or whatever you have in the fridge already. We ended up with some leftover vegetables but it was perfect to just throw into a leftovers meal.
Rinse the veggies to get any dirt off. Chop the vegetables big enough so they won’t fall off the skewers but also not too big that they won’t cook. The sizes we cut them above seemed to do just perfectly fine.
Tip: Next, if you’re using wooden skewers let them soak in water for a few minutes. This will help the skewers not to burn up on the grill.
Once you are ready, begin skewering.
Tip: You can add salt and pepper to give the vegetables a bit more flavor.
Once your grill had reached about 350 degrees F, throw the skewers on.
Be sure to let the meat get browned and golden while also making sure the veggies get cooked through.
Tip: The bet way to achieve this, it leaving the grill closed when you can to let the vegetable steam a little. This way the meat won’t overcook and the vegetable won’t undercook.
This is basically what the skewers look like in the end. My family ate them up so quickly I didn’t get the chance to get pictures of them off the grill!
You can eat these on the skewer, pulled off the skewer, with rice, with salad, with anything you want. They are so simple and so quick but most importantly so delicious. What I love mot about it, is it is so customizable. You can change out any of the ingredients for something you may like better.

Marinate your meats. Starting with the chicken. In a bowl, mix the cilantro, lemon, garlic salt, red pepper flakes and a tbs amount of olive oil.

Next in a bowl mix the steak, olive oil, white wine vinegar and GrillMates packet. The packet gives specific directions on how much of the ingredients to add. You can pick any flavor you want, it doesn't have to be this specific one.
Next, wash you vegetables of choice and chop them into medium sized pieces. You do not want them too big or too small. *look at photos in post for visual
If you are using wooden skewers, let those soak in water for a few minutes. This helps to avoid the skewers burning on the grill.
When your meats have marinated, begin skewering. Mix up the vegetables and meat to get a good combination on each stick.
Heat the grill to about 350 degrees F and plop your skewers on. To cook the meat and vegetables evenly. I find it best to keep the lid closed as long as possible to let the vegetables steam. It is also important to let the meat get golden and crisp.
Enjoy! Pair with any delicious sides.
