  • 1.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 3 medium zucchini
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce


  1. Preheat the grill to 400 degrees.

  2. Cut the chicken and zucchini into large chunks (one to one-and-a-half-inch pieces). Alternate chicken and zucchini when layering on your skewers.

  3. Place and grill and cook for 5-6 minutes. Flip skewers to their opposite side and cook another 5-6 minutes.

  4. Brush barbecue sauce over chicken skewers, then flip and brush opposite side with remaining barbecue sauce. Cook for 1-2 more minutes, then remove from heat. Serve and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

Total grilling time was approximately 15 minutes, but exact time will vary based on the temperature of your grill and how thick your chicken pieces are. The best bet is to cook to safe temperatures - your skewers are done when the chicken reaches 165 degrees!

Nutritional information will vary based on type of bbq sauce used - I used Stubb's original barbecue sauce.
