Beef and Chicken Kabobs (With a Giveaway)


*** Winner = #40, Theresa!***

You know how much we love to fill our grill.  Burgers, brats, hotdogs, steaks, chicken… grill once, eat all week!  The one thing I haven’t grilled for years and years, though?  Kabobs. Not sure why, because I love all things peppers and onions and mushrooms.  Yum!

When my Lawry’s Flavor Forecast kit arrived from MyBlogSpark earlier this summer, I knew just how we’d make use of it!  Skewers, two different marinades, seasoned salt… we’re grilling some kabobs!

Beef and Chicken Kabobs

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 lb. steak (I used fillet because that’s what we had left at the end of our beef.  I know… I’m spoiled!)
  • meat marinade or rub
  • fresh mushrooms, bell peppers, onions, zucchini, cherry tomatoes – whatever you like!

Marinate beef and chicken in the refrigerator for several hours.  Cut into 1 inch(ish) chunks.

Cut veggies into chunks.  Thread meat and veggies on skewers.  Our children enjoyed threading their own and making patterns. (Yes, with adult assistance.)

Grill for a few minutes on each side, brushing additional marinade over kabobs.  Serve with rice and fresh fruit for a light and flavorful summertime supper.

We had extra meat and veggies (and not enough skewers), so the next day I made a yummy stir fry, adding some of the Tuscan Sun-Dried Tomato marinade.  My meat and potatoes loving husband agreed that it was delish!

Want to try Lawry’s Flavor Forecast kit for yourself? By the 105° temperature readings from today (yes, seriously!) I’d say there’s a bit of summer left!  I’ve got a kit (pictured above) to give to one of my readers, courtesy of Lawry’s and MyBlogSpark.  To enter, simply leave a comment letting me know your favorite food to grill OR your favorite kabob combination.  What do you like to thread on the skewer?

Want extra entries?  Share this giveaway on twitter, facebook, or your own blog.  Leave a separate comment for each.  Winner will be chosen by Sunday evening, August 8.

  1. I like to grill chicken that has been marinated in your recipe, of course. :>) Thanks for the chance!

  2. Cool! Thanks for the contest and the recipe. Sounds tasty!

  3. Oh, and I’m tweeting this for you! @txblond 🙂

  4. I LOVE to grill!!! One of my favorite things to throw together is what we call a Poor Man’s Supper =)

    I cut up acouple of big potatoes, some zucchini, squash, and mushrooms and throw them on an olive oiled cookie sheet. Throw on some seasoning to taste and add marinated stew meat on top. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and cook for about an hour in a covered grill on a medium temperature (around 350 or so).

    It is ready when the potatoes are fork tender. Carefully peel away the aluminum foil and enjoy!!!

    Thanks for the giveaway! We love to grill both chicken and steak, (haven’t done kabobs yet!) I like to use Kraft zesty italian dressing for my chicken marinade!

  7. Lisa Milyard says:

  12. kathleen says:

    We love to grill everything there is nothing better then grilled food. We recently started a steak dry rub. It was delicious.

  13. My favorite kabob is chunks of beef with onions and green peppers. I love
    the flavor of grilled vegetables. Serve with garden tomatoes and this is a
    colorful feast!

  14. We just had Kabobs last Wednesday. We marinaded them in teriyaki sauce and grilled them. It was great! Burgers are also a must when it comes to grillin’.

  15. I love chicken that has been marinated on the grill.

  16. We love to grill – especially pork chops with a dry rub!

  17. We eat grilled food often. We like chicken and shrimp kebabs marinated in Italian dressing and pineapple juice.

  18. Anne Marie says:

    We love to grill chicken and burgers but actually anything on the grill is great!!

  19. We love to make kabobs (I need to put that on my list for next week!), and almost always use steak, turkey bacon, purple onion and bell pepper.

  20. I just made grilled pizza and it was delish! It’s our new favorite!

  21. Steak and shrimp kabobs…yummo!

  22. We love grilling kabobs too, with chicken, yellow squash, zucchini and onions. Thanks for the contest, I am loving looking around your blog and getting to know you!

  23. We like to grill steaks, or my husband does. I just get to eat them!

  24. I love to grill hamburgers!

  25. I don’t grill kabobs very often, but I have metal and wooden skewers. Sounds like a plan for this weekend.

  26. For me, it’s a toss-up between chicken and steak on the grill!

  27. Our favorite thing to grill is “beer butt chicken” . You take a can(we actually use a pop can) pour out half and add garlic to the can. Sit the bird on the can, so that the cavity is on the can. Put olive oil and spices on the bird. Cook slowly on indirect heat. It is to die for.

  28. I like to grill pizza…..even frozen pizza tastes so much better when grilled!

  29. We love to grill the traditional hamburgers!!

  30. I love to grill bbq chicken. Not very exciting, but still my favorite. 🙂

  31. We have never tried kabobs, but we do like to grill hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken, steaks, pork chops, vegetables, pizza, etc. It would be fun to win and try the kabobs.

  32. my favorite thing to grill is mushrooms stuffed with cream cheese wrapped in bacon! Yum!

  33. We are a grilling family too. We do it year round even when there is a foot of snow outside on the deck. My kids have gotten married and they have to get a grill right away. Lawrys is great. I love all the flavor combinations. I love kebobs too, I just like to get help putting them together!

  34. I just started doing kabobs this summer after not doing them for years. I’m LOVING the Martha Stewart recipe (from this months mag) of a soy sauce/balsalmic vinegar for the steak and mixing it with onions, bellpepper, summer squash, and zucchini. She brushed a chimichurri sauce over the finished project- and that’s yummy, but the kids don’t seem to mind if it’s not there. I do like trying new marinades though!!

  35. Tammy in Alabama says:

    We love to take round steak, cut it up, marnade it with some lawry’s marinade and skewer it with grape tomatoes, onions, peppers, and squash … yummy, quick and easy for the busy week nights. I look forward to your e-mails. Have a blessed day! Tammy

  36. I love grilled steak! Yum!!! I also like grilled deer meat wrapped in bacon, jalapenos, and cream cheese!

  37. We love to grill chicken and pizza yum.

  38. We like just about anything cooked on the grill, but our favorite has to be pork burgers. Juicy in the middle, crispy on the edges, with a little bbq sauce and some sweet onion, it makes a delicious sandwich. Grilled bratwurst with kraut is another favorite, even if the kids turn up their noses. Kebabs are fun to make, and I swear the kids eat more that way. If they pick what goes on their stick, they are more willing to try something new. Great giveaway idea!

  39. I love squash, onions, bell peppers, meat. Potatoes and sweet potatoes on the grill are really good too though.

  40. I love grilling skewered veggies (peppers, onions, mushrooms, squash, tomatoes) and of course corn on the cob!

  41. we like to make kabobs of chicken, green peppers, red peppers and onions 🙂

  42. I love kabobs with chicken, mushrooms, and onions.

  43. I’m pretty boring — my favorite kabobs are the traditional combination of onions, peppers, & tomatoes. I marinate my steak with the Montreal Steak Grillmates. Terrific!

  44. i love grilled hot dogs(yea i know, old school) but the kiddos love to make fruit kebobs and grill them. Im also slightly obsessed with grilled corn on the cob

  45. I love steak and shrimp kebabs… and any veggie under the sun. 🙂

  46. Hmmm. Kabobs – my favorite would definitely be beef, peppers and onions. Absolutely delicious!

  47. I think my favorite would be a juicy steak grilled to medium. Can’t get much better than that!

  48. We love to grill chicken all summer long. It is so versatile and we can grill a lot at one time and enjoy it all week.

  49. Beth Long says:

    I love to grill juicy chicken breast marrinated in just about anything. We like to make kabobs with chicken breast (what else!), peppers and pineapple.

    Thanks, I’d love to win!

  50. I like chicken, pineapple, and peppers on the grill. Yummy!! But anything cooked on the grill is fine with me.

    I love plain ole grilled chicken marinated.

  53. Mary Nasfell says:

    In answer to the What Do I like to thread on the skewers to grill– I do mine pretty much the way you did, same items,
    but I always add pineapple chunks. I try to use fresh pineapple, but canned works too. And if I have some available, I will slice cobs of corn into one inch slices and add to the skewers as well.

  54. I love to grill steaks.

  55. My favorite thing to grill on skewers is a combination of veggies mixed with shrimp that have been marinated. Yum!!
