Fire Up the Grill: Best BBQ Chicken Kabob Recipes

Planning a family BBQ or attending a neighborhood potluck this summer? Go ahead and ditch the usual hamburgers and hotdogs and try something different. This year, celebrate the sunshine season by grilling some BBQ chicken kabobs.

Not sure where to begin? We took care of the most difficult step and found the best mouth-watering recipes that will have you running to the grill.

Quick Tip: Unsure whether to use wood or metal skewers? Using metal skewers rather than wood will help your meat cook thoroughly in the center and don’t run the risk of burning or breaking into the grill.
