These Tuscan grilled chicken kabobs are so easy and we eat them all summer long. Bright, fresh colors and fresh flavors for dinner tonight!
Can You Cook Kabobs on the Stove?
You can cook these using outdoor grill or pan-grill on the stove, if don’t have an outdoor grill.
To cook these kababs on the stove, heat the grill pan to medium.
Cook the skewers for about 6-7 minutes per side, depending on how large the chicken pieces are.
Kabobs or skewers? I call them kabobs but I’ve noticed a lot of people say skewers. It really doesn’t matter, but these Tuscan grilled chicken kabobs do matter. And speaking of things that matter…
Frozen. The Little Mermaid. Brave. Let’s just chat about those. Oh, you think you’re too old for Disney movie talk? Well sit back and relax because I have a lot to say about things that matter and don’t matter. Have you heard everyone picking apart Disney movies and the secret messages that they carry? Listen, whether they do carry secret messages or not, IT. DOESN’T. MATTER. So many people were so worried about Frozen being about Gay marriage (let it be known I don’t think that’s what it’s about) that I think they missed two of the most important messages. Why don’t I tell you? 1. Fear isolates and destroys, love saves and can do anything. 2. Joy. It’s a feel good, cute, catchy songs movie. Can’t you just sit back and enjoy it instead of picking it apart?
The Little Mermaid. Oh boy, this one is hypocritical because my mom is the one that as a little girl told me she didn’t love the movie because she felt like Ariel was a bit selfish. She does sing about wanting more, disobeying her father, choosing to trap herself in an unsafe contract and then choosing to break the rules that her dad made to keep her safe. Now I used to argue that maybe Ariel’s dad was stuck in the darkness and Ariel could see the better life and while she was a tad selfish with never being satisfied with what she had, maybe wanting more was just reaching for more light, knowledge and a better life. In the end though, we just agreed to sit back and enjoy the movie. It’s still one of my favorites because in the end, IT. DOESN’T. MATTER.
Brave. Ugh, I got so tired of this one. In fact, I couldn’t move past what everyone was saying and never ended up loving the movie. Do you remember the push? Girls and women do not need men. Women can save the world and be everything without a man as her happy ending. Gah. I’m tired of this messaging. I think it runs from selfishness and fear. I do need my husband. He’s wonderful, he makes me strive to be better, he helps me be more balanced, he supports each member of the family in different ways but most importantly he offers something to our children I cannot. Men and women are different, but that’s not a bad thing! Our hands are not exactly the same, the are opposites which allows us to perform many things and that’s exactly how men and women should be. No one is perfect, but we should be complimenting each other in our lives instead of competing. We need each other and that doesn’t not make us weak, it makes us stronger.
Tuscan Grilled Chicken Kabobs
Tuscan Grilled Chicken Kabobs
- 2 Chicken Breasts , boneless skinless, cut into chunks
- 1 Red, Green, Yellow, Orange Bell Pepper, all hopped in large pieces
- 1 Red Onion, chopped
- 2 Zucchini, sliced
For the Marinade
- Zest of 1 lemon
- 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
- 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
- 1 Tablespoon Balsamic Vinegar
- 1 Teaspoon Sugar
- 2 Tablespoons Tuscan Seasoning
- Pinch Salt and Pepper
- Mix the marinade in a ziploc bag and add the chicken. Seal and place in the fridge for up to 1 hour.
- Remove the meat from the marinade and place on skewers with the veggies, starting and ending with veggies which will help to keep the chicken juicy and tender.
- Heat a grill to medium high heat and add the skewers. Turn the heat to medium and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side. The chicken will easily release from the grill when the meat is sufficiently cooked on that side.
- Remove all skewers and serve immediately.

is there any way to reduce the sodium count?
Hi Debra! You could reduce the Tuscan seasoning and omit the pinch of salt.
Sooo good. I used Italian seasoning in place of the Tuscan seasoning, and added whole cloves of garlic on the skewer, because I’m a sucker for garlic. So tasty and flavorful! Will definitely have to make this again
Yes!! I’m glad you liked it! Seems like good changes as well!!
The directions are missing from this recipe. Can you add them back in?
Whaaaat???!! Ugh! I’m so sorry about that! I’ll get them back in there as soon as possible!
Can you tell me what Tuscan Seasoning is? Can I make it myself or is it a common item in the supermarket?
It’s a common seasoning at the grocery store, but you could always make your own or make our greek seasoning, https://ohsweetbasil.com/citrus-greek-chicken-recipe/
I love these kabobs! They are refreshing and so easy for a week night dinner.
If you ever want to change it up you should try marinating them in Italian dressing-no other seasoning required for the marinating! After you skewer them sprinkle some Lawry’s Seasoned Salt on them and grill! When we do it that way we usually throw some mushrooms into the veggies as well.
Both ways are delish! We eat one of them at least every other week!
Oh I love that idea! Anything quick is always a favorite of mine, haha. Thanks!
These kabobs were delicious! We will definitely be making these again. Forgot how good grilled veggies were! Thank you for sharing! Keep the recipes coming!
Sandy, every year I feel like I need the reminder that grilled veggies are so stinking good. Thanks for the comment!
Where did you find the Tuscan seasoning? I’ve been to 2 stores and haven’t found it yet
Oh no! We found it at Kroger. You could use Greek as well which is delicious.
Kabob recipie is spectacular. Not only tastes wonderful but they are a great presentation because of the different pepper colors. Thank you for this easy and great recipe. Keep them coming! ( Frozen is my granddaughters favorite movie and she is 23 years old-We loved how you incorporated it within this post)
23! Oh I cannot even believe that our daughter’s will one day be that old. I wish time would just pause for a moment. So glad you enjoyed the kabobs!
Thank you for the Tuscan Grilled Kabobs recipe, however I don’t think this is the place for your comments regarding the movie Frozen, not that I don’t agree with you. I come to Sweet Basil for recipes, not social commentary.
You can always scroll down to the recipe if you’d like to skip the commentary. 🙂 Best part of a blog you own is you can chat about what’s on your mind. Hope your day goes well.
I’ve been CRAVING kabobs lately, and this recipe is just the push I needed! These look so flavorful- totally drool-worthy!
Thank you so much Karly!
This is exactly what I have been looking for!
Side Note:The amount of ads on this site in insane. It takes forever for everything to load and then I have to “x” 5 boxes before I can scroll for the actual recipe.
Hi, I’m so glad it’s a recipe you’ll be able to enjoy. I’m sorry about the ads. We are always looking to improve things. Ads are a tricky thing because we need them to pay the ol’ mortgage in order to run this site full time, but oh my goodness I wish we could delete them all, just to be honest. Anyway, thanks for commenting. xoxo!
