These kabobs are really nice served over your favorite rice cooked in chicken broth and then very lightly flavored with a bit of lemon juice.



If using wooden bamboo skewers, place in water to soak (for least 30 minutes)

Stir together the olive oil, ranch dressing, Worcestershire sauce, sage, salt, lemon juice, vinegar, pepper ,and sugar in a medium bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes. Place chicken cubes in the bowl, stir to coat with the marinade; cover and refrigerate for 45 minutes.

Lightly oil grill grate and preheat the grill to medium high heat.

Meanwhile, thread chicken on to skewers and discard marinade.

Grill skewers, turning once, for 8 to 12 minutes or until the juices run clear.

I sometimes grill my veggies on skewers separate from the meat because a few varieties don't cook in the same amount of time, so I make an extra batch of marinade for them. My favorites to grill are bell peppers, button mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, parboiled new potatoes, sweet onions, and zucchini. Another plus to making a separate batch of marinade, is that you can safely use the veggie marinade to baste during grilling ;-)


  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3/4 cup ranch dressing
  • 3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, or more to taste
  • 1 tsp. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. white wine vinegar
  • pepper, to taste, if desired
  • 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts and/or thighs, cut into 1 inch pieces


Mix together the olive oil, ranch dressing, Worcestershire sauce, cilantro, lime juice, vinegar, and pepper in a large bowl. Add chicken, stir to coat, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

If using bamboo skewers soak in water for 20 minutes. Preheat a lightly oiled grill plate to medium high.

Thread chicken onto skewers, discard marinade, grill chicken, turning occasionally, until juices run clear when pierced with a fork, about 8 to 12 minutes, and serve.

Drain the pineapple, reserving juice; set pineapple aside. In a bowl, combine the Worcestershire sauce and reserved juice.


Cut each piece of chicken into four strips. Pour 1 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add chicken.

I am looking for a recipe for grilled chicken kabob marinated in plain yogurt. I had this chicken kabob at a restaurant, it was unbelievable. The waitress said that it was marinated in plain yogurt, but I figure there has to be something more to it. Does anyone have a recipe using plain yogurt for marinating?

This might work....
1/2 c yogurt (I prefer Greek, and fat free, but any plain should do)
3 cloves minced garlic (again, I used more, but I love garlic)
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp canola oil
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp chili powder
1 tbsp fresh ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cumin

The recipe called for 4-6 boneless chicken breasts, but I used boneless, skinless thighs, and it was fantastic.

Grill over indirect medium heat for about 20 mins until done. Could be done inside on a grill pan, but be sure not to exceed a medium flame.
