Barbecued Chicken Kabobs

I am sneaking a Labor Day recommendation in on you. If you’re grilling out, I must say, you won’t be disappointed with these Barbecue Chicken Kabobs. When I saw the recipe floating around among some of my favorite blogs, I knew it had to be good.

And these days, are the best of days – enjoying the joys of fall while still grasping on to the best of summer, like the grill.

The original recipe called for refrigerating the chicken pieces in 2 teaspoons of salt. I omitted this step, which not only cut out a lot of sodium, but it also made this dinner a simple, 20-minute, healthy meal.

Dine with napkins, and plenty of them…these are finger-licking, sticky good.

Question: What are you doing for Labor Day?

Be well,


  1. And now I’m craving kabobs. :) Delicious looking pics!

  2. i’m back in the states! thanks again for your guest post :) now to catch up on something like a million entries in my google reader!

  3. I love recipes like this! No big plans for the holiday weekend. We are trying to get caught up on household chores!

  4. Those sure do look finger licking good!!! Jacob and I are relaxing at my parents lake house this weekend. It’s so nice to get away for a few days :) hope you have a great extended weekend!

  5. These kabobs look fantastic! I love the homemade sauce! Yum!

  6. I agree, homemade bbq sauce is so good! That looks delicious – I am loving our fall weather this morning!!

  7. I bet this would work well with shrimp too, maybe even scallops! Sure my hubby would love it with chicken. We had an air show here at the base yesterday which was great. Somehow wound up eating shrimp pad thai at 8 am for breakfast. Awesome Japanese food for dinner. Today will be more low key because of the rain. Probably just heading to the mall after doing some work at home. We are also still unpacking.

  8. This recipe looks delicious!
    Yeah, it doesn’t seem to need the salt.
    I just got back in town from a wedding in Reno. Went to my parents for a BBQ tonight!

  9. These look deeelicious! We are actually going to grill chicken tonight, but then we’re topping it with YOUR suggestion for butternut squash sauce. I hope it turns out, I’m a bit nervous.

  10. Thank you for not putting the sauce on earlier. One of the biggest mistakes is to apply sauce too early, and you end up with a burned, nasty mess.

    I really like this primal sauce over at Mark’s Daily Apple ( It was pretty good. I have a recipe for one that is sugar free that I’ve received a lot of positive comment on.

  11. Hi Nicole, these look WICKED!!! Can’t believe its labour day already!!! We’re relaxing a bit today because we’ve been going gangbusters for the last few days. Hope you have a good relaxing day too!!

  12. These make me want to drool just looking at the pics. I love me some chicken kabobs!
