Baked Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs


It may be Spring according to the calendar, but by looking around outside now, it's still Winter for sure ~ thanks to the sleet/snow/wind combo over the weekend, we have another 3" snow on the ground yet again...




Because of the above, it's not grilling season here yet, so our chicken kabobs came from the oven.

Chicken is like a blank slate, it's a flavor-absorbing foundation that is extremely versatile, according to your taste. Here is a great recipe to turn your chicken kabobs into a flavorful, mouthwatering meal, hitting all the right notes.

The chili-lime concoction here is truly delicious, spicy but sweet enough for kids! Chicken breast, sweet Vidalia onions, bell peppers, and cherry tomatoes ~ all marinated in a zesty seasoning blend of red pepper, chili powder, with a touch of brown sugar and the tangy flavor of lime.


I don't know what it is about meat on stick, but these kabobs are a guaranteed pleaser for your crowd that are easy to make, just a little fancier than simple grilled chicken.

And, we plan to be enjoying them soon again when the grill is not covered with snow! 

This recipe will kick-start the summer grilling season, and the kabobs will be, "Oh, so good!"

  6. We call them 'kebabs' or 'kababs'. It's a middle-eastern dish and very loved by all. We put them on the plate or in a pita pocket with salad and tahine addition. Either way they are delicious. Chicken breast has less fat than other meats, and that's a big advantage to those who keep an eye on their body weight. The ingredients in your recipe are the very right ones for this popular delicacy.

    1. Hi Duta! It's confusing, so many spellings, thanks for clearing it up! They would be great in a pita pocket, have to try that. The marinade goes perfectly with the chicken and we really liked it. Thanks again and take care

  7. Pam, Nice looking kabobs! We have relatives in north central Wisconsin who had about a foot of snow this weekend...and they had to deal with a family funeral too... Even here in East Tennessee we saw a little bit of snow in the air yesterday and it went down to 30 degrees last night. 63 though later today... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    1. Thanks, Dave! This is crazy weather for sure, can't remember an April like this since we've lived here. Your 63 degrees sounds great to me! Have a wonderful rest of the week.

  9. It's been such a weird spring. We haven't gotten nearly as much snow as you (only a few light coatings which melted immediately), but the temperature swings! Below freezing one day, 70 the next. Anyway, love meat on a stick, and this looks like a particularly fine example of it. Thanks!

Celery is as fresh and clean as a rainy day after a spell of heat. It crackles pleasantly in the mouth.... it should be eaten alone, for it is the only food which one really wants to hear oneself eat.
