Variety is the Spice of Life

One of the great things about chicken skewers is the ability to customize them. Here are a few variations you can try:

Classic BBQ Chicken Skewers: Stick to the basics with chicken, peppers, and onions, all enhanced with your favorite BBQ sauce. This combination is a crowd-pleaser and never fails to impress.

Mediterranean Chicken Kebabs: Use boneless skinless chicken breasts, cherry tomatoes, and red onions, and brush with a LĒVO lemon-infused olive oil. Add a sprinkle of oregano and serve with tzatziki sauce for an authentic touch.

Spicy Chicken Thigh Skewers: Opt for chicken thighs marinated in a spicy infusion of smoked paprika, garlic, and chili flakes. Serve with a cooling cucumber salad to balance the heat.

Adding Even More Flavor

Enhance the flavor of your chicken by marinating it for a few hours or overnight. A mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and herbs works wonders. For a quick option, use a dry rub of smoked paprika, garlic powder, and cumin.

Don’t limit yourself to just peppers and onions. Try adding zucchini, cherry tomatoes, or mushrooms to your skewers. Each vegetable adds a unique flavor and texture.

Essential Tips for Grilling Chicken Skewers

Choosing the Right Skewers

Metal Skewers: Ideal for frequent grillers as they are reusable and distribute heat evenly, helping to cook the chicken from the inside out. They are also sturdier, making it easier to turn the skewers on the grill.

Wooden Skewers: Perfect for occasional use. Soak them in water for at least 30 minutes before grilling to prevent burning. This step is crucial to avoid the skewers catching fire during grilling.

Using the Grill Pan

For those without an outdoor grill, a grill pan is an excellent alternative. It allows you to achieve those beautiful grill marks and a nice char on your chicken and veggies right on your stovetop. Preheat the grill pan well and lightly oil it to prevent sticking.

Cooking to Perfection

Temperature Control: Maintain a medium-high heat for grilling skewers. This ensures the chicken cooks evenly without drying out.

Turning the Skewers: Turn the skewers every few minutes to ensure even cooking and to prevent charring on one side.
