These grilled ginger-lime chicken kabobs are very easy to prepare.

I decided to marinate chicken pieces in the morning, allowing the marinade to do its magic.  Then I assembled the kabobs right before they went to the grill.

The marinade includes a mixture of fresh cilantro, freshly grated ginger, lime juice, and honey in a mixing bowl, and marinated for a few hours.

Next, threaded the skewers and grilled them.

Adding some fresh veggies not only adds a vibrant color to these kabobs but also additional flavors to the chicken.

There was enough for everyone to have one kabob or two. Everyone enjoyed them very much, even the little ones loved them too!

Best of all, grilling the kabobs took less than 10 minutes.  It was not only easy, but a pleasure to grill them, making dinner a breeze!

Enjoy!

  1. What great flavors! When I do kabobs I tend to go more in the Mediterranean direction, but I’m not sure why. Maybe because the first ones I ever made were Greek. But these sound fabulous!

    1. Thanks so much, Mimi. They truly are delicious! You’ll have to try my recipe and let me know. Have a great day! πŸ™‚

  2. Anytime I see ginger, lime and cilantro together, I KNOW that the recipe is a winner! I've never thought of marinading chicken with them, but is so perfect! I hope that I will make this VERY SOON now that the hotter temps are coming and grilling out keeps the heat out of the kitchen! Nice to be back from Italy and catch up with all of your yummy recipes!

    1. Hey Roz! Thank you and welcome back. Boy, you are so lucky you get to go to Italy every year and May and June are the nicest months to be there. Can't wait to hear all about it! Xxoo

  3. I love kabobs and all the ingredients listed. This sounds perfect for a weekend dinner. We went camping all weekend and both recipes I planned to blog this week were flops! Sometimes it works – sometimes it doesn't. These were obviously a home run!
