A quick and easy garlic chicken mixed grill shish kebab recipe and a giveaway for an Everyday Grillin’ Prize Pack with cast iron skewers from Bush’s Beans.
So, this is it. Summer has come to a close. Tomorrow the world will change and start spinning in the opposite direction, replacing long days at home with little directing our path with long days of school and structure.
Labor Day doesn’t mean the end of grilling season for my husband. In reality, I think sometimes we may even grill more once school is in session because of the ease of use factor. Meals done in minutes, and there’s always so little clean-up involved. (Read: No washing pots and pans.)
The only tools here are a small bowl for the sauce and a cutting board for chopping. It’s five minutes of prep, 10-12 minutes of grilling, and the food is on the table. This is the perfect answer to the crazy back-to-school days or an impromptu last-day-of-summer-vacation meal.
Shish kebabs were one of my favorite meals when I was growing up. Everything is better with a stick shoved through it. It’s like serving toothpicks with lunch to a kid. Fun, easy, endlessly entertaining. We paired our garlic grilled chicken skewers with Bush’s Sweet Mesquite Grillin’ Beans.
I’m giving away an everyday grilling set:
- Cast Iron Skewers, set of 6
- LED Triple Grill Light
- Barbecue Spatula
- Barbecue Fork
- Barbecue Basting Brush

2 yellow summer squash, cut into 1/2″ coins
2 zucchini, cut into 1/2″ coins
1 medium red onion, cut into chunks
For the garlic sauce:
1/4 cup lemon or lime juice
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons honey
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh lemon basil leaves
1/2 cup olive oil
salt and pepper
Preheat your grill to medium heat. Take wooden, stainless, or cast iron skewers and thread onto the skewers.
In a small bowl, combine lemon juice, Dijon, honey, garlic, and fresh basil. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Place the skewers on the grill and baste with the garlic sauce. Cook for 10-12 minutes, turning and brushing with the sauce occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and vegetables start to char. Serve warm.
NOTES: You can use other vegetables like corn cob slices, tomatoes, or any other vegetables you have on hand.
Makes 4-6 servings.
