Marinated Chicken Kabobs


"This great summer recipe was given to me by a friend years ago. You can put any vegetables you want on the skewers. Don't be worried when you see the light corn syrup in the ingredients, it comes together great! It's a great change. You can even skip the vegetables and just skewer the chicken. Enjoy!"

  • Ready In

  1. In a medium bowl, blend vegetable oil, soy sauce, light corn syrup, lemon juice, sesame seeds, garlic powder, and garlic salt. Place chicken in the mixture. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil grate. Thread chicken onto skewers alternately with mushrooms, onions, and green bell pepper. Pour marinade into a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. Place skewers on the prepared grill. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, turning frequently, until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. Baste with the boiled marinade frequently during the last 10 minutes.

Super recipe that I've used for years. My original varys slightly, so for those who aren't quite sold on this version, here are the amounts in mine: 1 c oil, 1/4 c soy sauce, 1/4 c corn syrup, 2...

This was not that great. We thought it was OK for kabobs. We both enjoy much more flavor on the grill. Kids didn't like them too much either.

These kabobs are absolutely delicious! I made them for my wedding reception, and they were eaten in a flash. I used 1/2 honey and 1/2 corn syrup in the marinade, and let them marinate several ho...

My husband and I loved this marinade. It was easy to make and was delicious. The best part was that it only needed 2 hours to marinate.

These had a great tangy/sweet flavor. I used olive oil rather than veg oil and I used fresh crushed garlic rather than the garlic powder.

This was very good and easy to throw together. I was expecting more of a sweet flavor from the Karo syrup, but it was just a very subtle sweet flavor. I also cut the recipe in half and I had p...

These are the BEST kabobs I've ever had, and I am a REALLY picky eater. I used broccoli, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, and chicken. (I don't like green peppers or mushrooms.)

This is a wonderful recipe. We have also used the marinade recipe for stir fry and to marinate a pork loin then grilled it. I marinated the chicken overnight in a ziploc bag. It was soooo ten...

My husband and I love these kabobs. I didn't have light syrup one time and used honey instead and they were still awesome. Fabulous

Okay, this is the first review I have submitted. These Kabobs were so good that I had to take time out of my busy night to sit down and share with you all how delicious these are. I made these f...
