How has What's Gaby Cooking been around for so many years and yet we've never talked about Chicken Shish Kabobs?!? These things are the BEST. Especially when served with my famous basil vinaigrette!
My dad makes the best Chicken Shish Kabobs ever and I've taken his recipe and added my spin because THAT'S HOW I ROLL. Everything is perfectly seasoned with my Go To Seasoning blend. The chicken is threaded on the skewers nice and tight so everything stays juicy. It's served with basil vinaigrette because hello, have you tried it yet? GAME CHANGER. It's going to be the best thing you've made all week. You get the idea.
This is one of those recipes that's going to be in your weekly summer rotation starting today! Whip these Chicken Shish Kabobs up, serve them with a big salad, or a bowl of pasta or rice, or wrap them in some pita and add some grilled veggies... you get the idea. They are so good, you'll want to eat them every which way! And if you want to switch it up sometime, use the cilantro vinaigrette instead. Just as good and a totally different flavor profile!
