Grilled Garlic Parmesan Chicken Kebabs: A Flavorful Twist on a Classic Recipe

Are you looking for a mouthwatering dish to impress your family and friends at your next cookout? Look no further than these delicious Garlic Parmesan Chicken Kebabs. With juicy pieces of chicken marinated in garlic, Parmesan cheese, and a blend of flavorful herbs, these kebabs are a fantastic fusion of taste and texture.

Taking Inspiration from Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Chicken

The idea for these kebabs stemmed from our popular recipe for Air Fryer Garlic Parmesan Chicken. We wanted to take the best parts of that recipe and turn it into a grilled masterpiece. By marinating the chicken breast in oil, garlic, and Parmesan cheese, and then grilling it to perfection, we created a new twist on the traditional kebab. For an extra burst of flavor, you can also add fresh summer vegetables like zucchini, bell peppers, and onions to the skewers.

Grilling Instructions

  1. Cut the chicken into 1-inch cubes and thread them onto skewers. If using wooden skewers, remember to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes beforehand to prevent charring.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix the Parmesan cheese, vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, and all the seasonings.
  3. Baste the chicken kebabs with the garlic Parmesan mixture, ensuring they are well coated on all sides.
  4. Place the coated kebabs on a large platter, cover them gently, and let them marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or up to 12 hours.
  5. Preheat your grill to medium heat and close the lid while it heats up.
  6. Grill the kebabs for approximately 5 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
  7. Serve the kebabs warm, and get ready to enjoy a burst of flavors!

Adding Veggies for a Fresh Twist

If you’re fortunate enough to have a thriving garden with fresh produce, why not take advantage of it? Add some grilled zucchini, bell peppers, and onions to your kebabs for an extra touch of deliciousness. The combination of savory chicken and grilled veggies creates a well-rounded meal that will satisfy your taste buds.

Grill like a Pro

When it comes to grilling these kebabs, any grill or flat top cooking surface such as a Blackstone will do the job perfectly. Remember to preheat the grill with the lid closed to achieve the ideal cooking temperature.

Skewers: Metal or Wooden?

While metal skewers are our preferred choice due to their ease of use, you can also use wooden skewers. Just make sure to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before threading the chicken and vegetables onto them. This simple step will prevent them from catching fire and charring while everything cooks to perfection.
