Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Kabobs

Grilled Honey Mustard Chicken Kabobs

Warmer weather means grilling season and kabobs are always a crowd favorite.

And honey mustard anything is always a favorite of mine. I love it and always need extra for dipping.

The kabobs are easy, healthy, and perfect for your next cookout, party, as a treat for dad on Father’s Day, or as a fun weeknight dinner option.

The chicken marinates in a mixture of honey, yellow mustard, pineapple juice, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. It’s made with everyday ingredients but there’s a nice balance of savory, spicy, salty, and sweet.

I place bite-sized pieces of chicken into a large Ziplock, add all the marinade ingredients using the eyeball method, seal and squeeze the bag, and let it marinate in the fridge until I ready to thread the chicken onto skewers.

In addition to the chicken I used red peppers and yellow onions on the kabobs because my family is fond of them, but use your favorite veggies.

You can scale the recipe up or down depending on how many people you’re feeding.

The chicken is juicy and moist, the vegetables are crisp-tender, and the natural flavor that comes with grilling just makes everything taste so good. My family loved the kabobs and asked when I’m making them again.
