  • 8 bamboo skewers
  • 3 boneless-skinless chicken breasts cut in bite-size pieces
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary – dried rosemary is not a good substitute here
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • several grinds black pepper


  • Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least 15 minutes to keep them from burning on the grill. (You could use metal skewers if you like.)
  • Combine remaining ingredients – chicken through pepper – in a large bowl. Stir to coat all sides of chicken chunks.
  • Assemble kabobs by dividing chicken chunks and threading them on to 8 skewers. Cover skewers and refrigerate until you’re ready to grill.
  • Preheat the grill to 375°F. Grill chicken for 3 minutes per side for a total of 12 to 15 minutes, or until cooked through and still moist. Serve.
