Grilled Chicken Kabobs Recipe

December 22, 2010

Please every camper at your site with this easy, adaptable grilling recipe.

Jeannie Gilman, a KOA camper from North Chelmsford, Massachusetts, calls this recipe, “The easiest ever. It can also be made with sirloin tips or swordfish—or without meat for a vegetarian treat,” she says. “Just use firm tofu!”

Grilled Chicken Kabobs


  • 1 large bottle of light Italian dressing
  • 2 lbs boneless chicken breast, cut into chunks
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 3 green and 3 red peppers, cut into thick pieces
  • 6 Vidalia onions, quartered and separated
  • 1 pint button mushrooms, or baby portabella
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped well
  • 12 bamboo BBQ skewers, soaked in water for an hour or overnight


  1. Place chicken and dressing into a large Ziploc baggie and marinate overnight.
  2. When ready for grilling, toss veggies with a little olive oil and chopped garlic.
  3. Make kabobs with the soaked skewers, chicken and veggies and sprinkle with salt and pepper to season.
  4. Grill for 2 minutes each side, turning three times, until chicken is cooked through and the veggies have a nice caramelization.

“Serve with your favorite camping side dishes– YUM!” says Jeannie. And best of all, she says, “The bamboo skewers become tinder wood for the fire!”
