Oven Chicken Veggie Kabobs

Try to make identical pairs of skewers so everyone gets equally served. I prefer metal skewers but if you use wood they need to be soaked in water for at least 30 minutes before using, preferably longer, to keep the wood from burning. The chicken can be marinated in advance for several hours. - Jenny Jones

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Makes: 2 servings

Oven Chicken Veggie Kabobs


  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon (1-2 Tablespoons)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Chicken + Vegetables:
  • One chicken breast (1/3 to 1/2 pound)
  • One large zucchini - cut in 1/4 inch slices
  • 1/2 of a red pepper - cut in bite size pieces
  • 1/2 of a yellow pepper - cut in bite size pieces
  • 1/4 of a small red onion - separate layers in bite size pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 450° F.
  2. Combine marinade ingredients in a plastic bag. I use a produce bag.
  3. Cut chicken into bite size 1-inch pieces and add to marinade. Set aside.
  4. Line a large baking sheet with foil including the edges. (I like to put parchment paper on top of the foil)
  5. Prepare vegetables and add to marinating chicken. Toss well.
  6. Place chicken & veggies on a large plate for easier handling.
  7. Thread onto skewers and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
  8. Place on baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes - no need to turn over. (I serve these with basmati rice)

    They look delicious is there a recipe for the balsamic rice that sounds great would like to give it a go!
    Thank you Jenny Quick and easy!

      Basmati is just a fragrant white rice that cooks in water like any plain rice. Not all brands are equally good. The brand I use (“The Real”) cooks in 10-12 minutes.

    Jenny, you have heard the old saying, “give a person a fish and feed them for a day. Teach a person to fish and feed them forever”. I gave my neighbors your Ciabatta bread and they begin to request it…… so I told them to get with the Jenny Jones site and now the whole neighborhood smells like home baked bread! You ROCK Jenny Jones. Jere

    Hi Jenny
    I used this recipe for dinner tonight and it was excellent. Only change that I made was substituting cherry tomatoes for the zucchini. Delicious! (Sorry, no photo, we served ourselves too fast!)
    Thank you. ??

    This is my first ever to see your recipe and never know how to kabob anything. Thank you for this valuable data that i will step into this new horizon to hopefully discover new experience for my life and family. Grandpa Dale.

    Very simple, like it, especially the marinade. Just what I use on my salad. Is there any length of time the chicken should marinade ?. Do the skewers need to be turned during the cooking time.

    • Jenny Can Cook

      I clarified both questions in the recipe, thanks.

  14. Annie

    Great to hear from you Jenny. This is one simple and wonderful recipe, like a touch of summer in the midst of icy cold winter. I have been making kabobs for years but to be honest never have used a marinade so I’m anxious to try this one soon. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Jenny! Can I use thigh meat? Or would that not make it healthy?

    • Jenny Can Cook

      Chicken breast is leaner and is easier to work with. There is a lot of fat on chicken thighs that should be removed first but you can use thigh meat.
