The whole family will like this grilled chicken kabobs recipe because it is so tasty and you will love serving it to them because it is so healthy. Chicken breast is economical and it’s always worth buying extra if it’s on sale because you can thaw it out overnight in the refrigerator (on the bottom shelf and don’t let it drip on anything!) and then use it the following day.

Tips for moist chicken breast include not overcooking it because it will dry out and using a marinade to add extra moisture to the meat before you begin cooking. Chicken is not hard to cook and you can feel when it is done because it will be spongy. If you are not used to cooking chicken cut into one of the biggest pieces. If it is white inside with no trace of pink then it is ready. It is dangerous to eat chicken which is pink inside because it can harbor bacteria which is only killed by cooking it properly and that means white on the inside not pink.

Cuisine: American
Recipe type: Appetiser
Serves: 6
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 9 oz chicken breast
  • 1 pint fresh tomato juice
  • Fresh chives and parsley
  • 4 medium-sized potatoes
  • 4 small onions
  • 2 oz butter
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  1. You will need 6 skewers to make this. Chop the chicken breast into inch-sized cubes. Combine the tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper to taste in a mixing bowl. Marinate the chicken in this sauce for at least 2 hours but overnight if possible for a more intense flavor. If you are using wooden skewers, immerse them in water for an hour, else they will burn on the grill.
  2. Wash the potatoes. Scrub them with a brush instead of peeling them. Crumble the bouillon cube into boiling water and add the whole potatoes. When the potatoes are soft, discard the broth. Turn off the flame and cover the potatoes to keep them warm.
  3. As the potatoes are cooking, peel and clean the onions and gently sauté them whole in a medium-sized frying pan on a medium high heat in plenty of butter. Stir frequently. The onions will take about 10 minutes to cook. Do not let them fall apart or become golden. When they are cooked, keep them warm.
  4. Thread the chicken on to the skewers, keeping the marinade. Grill the chicken, turning the skewers frequently. It is ready when the chicken is golden and spongy in texture.
  5. Put the marinade in a saucepan and boil until syrupy. Add salt and pepper to taste. Arrange skewers on a plate. Add 2 potatoes and 2 sautéed onions to each plate and pour some melted butter over them. Scatter chopped chives and some finely chopped parsley over the potatoes. Pour the sauce over the meat and serve.

You can serve this succulent, juicy grilled chicken with potatoes and onions or you can simply serve it with salad and perhaps a yogurt-based dipping sauce if you want to make it more of a snack or serve it for lunch. Chicken cooks beautifully on the grill, especially if you are using a charcoal grill because of the smoky taste your poultry will take on. This is such an easy recipe and the marinated chicken will really please your palate.
