  • 2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 red onion, cut into wedges
  • Wooden or metal skewers


Prepare the Marinade: In a large bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, rosemary, thyme, parsley, salt, and black pepper

Marinate the Chicken: Add the cubed chicken to the bowl and toss to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours for more intense flavor.

Preheat the Grill: Preheat your natural gas grill to medium-high heat. This ensures even cooking and a nice sear on the chicken.

Assemble the Skewers: If you’re using wooden skewers, soak them in water for about 30 minutes to prevent them from burning. Thread the marinated chicken, bell peppers, and red onion onto the skewers, alternating between chicken and vegetables.

Grill the Skewers: Place the skewers on the preheated grill. Cook for about 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and has nice grill marks. The internal temperature of the chicken should reach 165°F.

Serve and Enjoy: Remove the skewers from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes. Serve the skewers with a side of grilled vegetables, a fresh salad, or your favorite summer side dish.

Tips for Grilling Perfection:

Consistent Heat: One of the advantages of using a natural gas grill is the ability to maintain consistent heat. This ensures that your food cooks evenly and reduces the risk of flare-ups.

Preheat Properly: Always preheat your grill before placing the food on it. This helps achieve the perfect sear and prevents the chicken from sticking to the grates.

Oil the Grates: Lightly oiling the grill grates can help prevent sticking and make cleanup easier.
