  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1.5-2" pieces


  • Defrost chicken if needed. Cut into 1.5" chunks. Transfer meat to a ziplock bag.
  • Whisk marinade ingredients together and pour all but about 1/4 cup in the bag with the chicken pieces.
  • Close the bag and massage it gently so that the chicken is well coated with marinade. Let the chicken marinate for about 3-5 hours in the fridge.
  • Set aside the reserved marinade for the vegetables. Cut zucchini, mushrooms, bell pepper and/or red onion. Refrigerate until ready to assemble kabobs.
  • Assemble kabobs by threading chicken onto skewers NOT tightly packed so that chicken can cook evenly and thoroughly. Arrange chicken kabobs and vegetable kabobs separately.
  • Cook on a hot grill about 5-7 minutes each side, until chicken registers 160°F on a cooking thermometer. Brush both chicken and vegetable kabobs with reserved marinade after turning once.
  • Let chicken kabobs sit about 5 minutes after removing from the grill, then serve alongside grilled vegetables.
