How to Grill Chicken Skewers:

  • Prepare a grill fire to a temperature of about 300° with hickory for smoke flavor.
  • If you are using fresh rosemary stems, strip all of the rosemary leaves and reserve for another use. Bamboo skewers will also work and should be soaked in water for about 15 minutes.
  • Cut chicken into bite size pieces.
  • Slice peppers into small pieces.

  • Thread chunks of chicken alternating with peppers onto skewers.
  • Brush or spray both sides of skewers with olive oil. I recently picked up this little Oil Sprayer  from Amazon and it’s so handy for grilling and my favorite air fryer recipes.

How to Store and Reheat:

Store leftover skewers wrapped tightly in foil or plastic wrap in the refrigerator up to 3 days.

Remove from skewers to reheat. Place a skillet over medium heat and add a bit of olive oil with the chicken and peppers. Cook, stirring often until heated through, about 5 minutes.

We also love this Honey Garlic Chicken for a quick weeknight dinner and my kids can’t resist this Coca-Cola Chicken.

These Hot Honey Boneless Wings are an irresistible addition to game day get togethers. For something out of the ordinary, we love this Grilled Chicken Shawarma.
