Servings 4 servings


  • 3 pounds chicken thighs Marketside’s Boneless Skinless No Antibiotic Chicken Thighs, Cubed
  • 2 cups Red Bell Peppers Cubed, about 2 peppers
  • 2 cups Yellow Bell Peppers Cubed, about 2 peppers
  • 2 cups Green Bell Peppers Cubed, about 2 peppers
  • 1 cup Purple Onion Cubed, about 1 onion
  • Toasted Sesame Seeds for garnishing



  • Cube the fresh produce: the purple onion and bell peppers. Mince the garlic and set all of those aside.
  • Cube the chicken thighs. Do not cube them too small.
  • In a bowl, add the chicken cubes, the garlic teriyaki marinade, olive oil, BBQ wing seasoning, salt and minced garlic.
  • Combine well until the chicken cubes are well coated.
  • Refrigerate the chicken to marinate for 30 minutes or overnight.
  •  Assemble the chicken kabobs by staking the chicken cubes and the veggies onto the skewers.
  •  Grill until fully cooked, approximately 7-10 minutes.
  •  Brush extra marinade onto the chicken kabobs a minute before you remove them from the grill for an extra juicy coat. (Do not brush them before grilling. The extra marinade makes them burn up faster)
  • Remove the grilled kabobs and garnish with toasted sesame seeds.


  • If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 mins before assembling and grilling. This prevents the skewers from burning.
  • Make sure you use a preheated grill.
  • Brush the grill with some oil, this prevents the chicken from tearing when you flip/remove them.
  • You can use the BBQ grill or the broiler.
  • When brushing on extra marinade while grilling, make sure to brush on extra marinade near the end of the grilling process, this ensures the chicken is cooked thoroughly.
  • You can use this delicious marinade on beef too!
