Homemade Chicken Kebabs Recipe

Store-bought chicken kebabs are convenient and fast, but there is nothing like the flavour and satisfaction you get from making your own. These Homemade Chicken Kebabs take 15 minutes of preparation, but they deliver an option that is healthier, cheaper and tastier! We love these garlic-infused chicken kebabs on the barbecue served with a classic green salad, roasted potatoes and garlic aioli. Check out the recipe for instructions on how to barbecue, pan-fry or oven-bake these delicious skewers.

Are homemade chicken kebabs suitable for leftovers?
