Sweet BBQ Chicken Kebabs

BBQChickenHealthyMain Course

   These delicious Chicken Kebabs turned out wonderful! We made them for a barbecue we had with our close friends. Everyone loved them. I am such a big fan of recipes that are great tasting and healthy for you too! I really like how the orange juice brings out a sweetness to the barbecue sauce. Yummo!

Write a review
  1. 1 pound (3-4) boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
  2. 1 cup Barbecue Sauce
  3. 6 Tablespoons Frozen Orange juice concentrate, thawed

  5. 1 each, Red, Green, Yellow Bell peppers, cut into 1 inch pieces
  6. 8-10 wooden skewers
  1. Start by placing your wooden skewers into a large dish/ bowl of water to soak in while getting other ingredients ready. ( They can start on fire if you grill them dry! )
  2. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Mix together the barbecue sauce and orange juice concentrate in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Thread chicken alternately with the pineapple and peppers onto wooden skewers.
  4. Brush the kebabs with the barbecue sauce mixture. Place them on the grill and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, turning throughout cooking process. Brush kebabs with all the remaining barbecue sauce mixture while they are grilling.
  1. Yields: 8 to 10 Kebabs

  1. What a crazy day you guys had! I can remember years ago we had a couple of experiences where we ran out of gas during grilling…and it was always when we had guests! Now we have a batural gas grill so it is hooked up to the gas line from the house and we never have to worry about that happening again 🙂
    The kabobs look great! I make that same thing but I’ve never added the orange juice to the BBQ sauce (and it’s Sweet Baby Rays in this house too!). I’m going to add the OJ next time. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I’m so glad that time of the year we can all enjoy outdoors is back again! Wonderful colorful food on stick you prepared there Holly! Thank you for sharing and have a great weekend 🙂

  3. Thank goodness grilling season is upon us again! Unfortunately, I don’t think we’ll be having very many kebabs this summer. My husband is always in charge of grilling, and the last time we had kebabs, they took forever. I have no idea why. But he wasn’t impressed and told me, “I don’t think kebabs are my thing.” LOL! I guess we’ll stick to kebabs of vegetables.

  4. We always cook our Thanksgiving turkey on the BBQ grill…of course, the year we have 25 people over is the year we got an empty from the store…AGH!
    These look so very, very yummy! I bet the OJ mixed with the BBQ sauce is A-MAZING!

  5. These sound delicious. You’re recipe reminded me of this other recipe lol and but it has also inspired me to weave the two recipes together. I’m gonna have to go shopping on my next day off and do some experimenting. Thanks for the great recipe.

  6. Holly, a quick question, do you have any easy fish recipes?? I need to find something for the grocery store where I work to demo for the public! I’m looking everywhere! Thanks, Earlene

  7. Earlene, I dont. I’m not to much of a fish eater.. but if you look on my blog roll list on the bottom right side of my blog, my friend Ryan over at ‘Ry Ry Recipes’, he has alot of fish recipes. : ) Hope this helps!

  8. The sauce was amazing! This came out great and my husband raved about this dish. He never raves. He noticed the sauce and loved the sweetness paired with the pineapple. I agree. Simple but wonderful flavors. Thank you for another great recipe!

    1. Yes, you can use a grill pan! Just make sure you cook them on medium heat until thoroughly cooked through. They might take a little longer to cook than an outdoor grill 🙂
