Balsamic Honey Chicken Kabobs Grilled

There is nothing like grilling in the summer months! The aroma from a BBQ is like no other! Of course we do not always have time for a slow-cooked BBQ but that does not mean we cannot enjoy grilling when we are short on time. For this recipe you could marinade the chicken while you are at work; have all your vegetables chopped and ready to assemble after work. This is a wonderful marinade that I make rather strong since we like the flavor of Balsamic. If you want you can reduce the time to marinade or even the amount of marinade to meat based upon your preference. I marinated mine for about 8-hours. Another option is to reduce the ratio of balsamic vinegar to olive oil. Give the recipe a try and then make any necessary adjustments for the next time. Kabobs are always nice over Jasmine rice!

2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
1 tbsp soy sauce, low-sodium
1 tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp onion powder
2 garlic cloves, minced

Boneless, skinless chicken cubed

Sweet pepper, cubed
Sweet onion, in chunks
Consider other vegetables you might enjoy


Combine marinade and pour over cubed boneless, skinless chicken. Place in refrigerator for eight-hours or to your own preference.

Create your kabobs by threading the chicken, bacon, sweet onions, and red peppers. Grill on a preheated medium-high grill and turn periodically until cooked.

  1. Just coming out of a viral fever and been a Veggie for a few weeks, this image is really mouth watering πŸ™‚

      Hope you are feeling better! I know how it is – whenever you have been sick – real food looks so good! πŸ™‚

      1. Yea, I am perfectly OK now and I just love food πŸ™‚

        Being close to the coastal areas, we have a wide range of options here in Kerala πŸ™‚

      2. Bernice says:

        Glad you are better and hopefully now you are enjoying some great food!! What is your favorite type of food?

      3. Rice and fish Currey πŸ™‚

        Nothing comes close ….

      4. Bernice says:

        That sounds like a wonderful dish!

      5. Yes it is, and we easily get fresh fish round the year and a lot of variety too πŸ™‚

        Red meat is not that popular in this part of the world.

        But, to me, anything tasty, is most welcome πŸ™‚

      6. Bernice says:

        I am not a big fan of red meat – I prefer chicken and fish. Fresh fish is a luxury and a lot of our fish comes from Boston and other areas so it is packed in ice. One could argue if that is really “fresh fish” since it does start to freeze. We can eat the fish from Lake Erie but there is mercury in the water so limited consumption is recommended.

  2. My mouth is salivating my friend.

    1. Bernice says:

      I really liked this balsamic marinade – I used a lot of balsamic to really get the flavor through the chicken.

    1. Bernice says:

      Thanks! This was a really good meal!! I need to make it again soon.

  3. Heather says:

    delicious…I don’t bbq, my husband does that πŸ™‚

    1. Bernice says:

      Well there you go – give him the recipe! πŸ™‚

    1. Bernice says:

      Thanks! We really enjoyed this recipe. I made another version with honey and it did not come out as good so I did not post that version. I thought the honey would add a nice dimension – but it didn’t seem to do much of anything. Of course it could have been the ratios too. So instead of trying to fix I tried a different approach!
