These Traeger Grilled Chicken Kabobs were not only surprising, they were also really easy.

Marinated chicken is the base for these tender, juicy kabobs that can lend themselves to so many different vegetables, your options are almost limitless. The red peppers were really great for these though, so don’t leave those out!

These kabobs are one of the best chicken dishes I’ve ever had, hands down. Like no question.

At all.

So tender, and juicy, and alllllll the things you wish chicken was all the time, but never actually is.

That’s partly due to this amazing marinade that Jeremiah threw together the other day, and also partly due to the magic that somehow works in the Traeger Grill. You can see our other Traeger recipes here in our Traeger Grilled Chicken post, and also this Traeger Grilled Chicken Sandwich recipe.

You can add any kind of veggies you want onto these. I, personally, think zucchini would be amazing, and some big chunks of onion. Jeremiah thinks that these are perfect as is, and I can’t really argue with him.

There’s something about the combination of the warm, toasty pita bread, those peppers, mushrooms, and chicken, and the dressing that just makes these sing.

How to make grilled chicken kabobs that aren’t dry

Start by marinating your meat and your mushrooms.

It doesn’t take long, just 30 minutes or so in the fridge will do it. Then take out your ingredients and get assembling!

Put your chicken on your preheated 450° grill, and let cook for 6 minutes and then flip.

Once the chicken has been flipped, let it cook with the grill closed for another 5-6 minutes, and then remove. Put your pita bread on the grill for 1-2 minutes, just to heat up and get a little toasty.

Great but our new Traeger won’t even get up to 350 degrees. 90 degrees here so thinking this is going to be useless come fall and winter. Ugh.

Ohhh man. That doesn't sound right. A Traeger should easily get up above 400-425. Check your pellets? I've had problems with mine not getting up to temp or not holding temp when I had pellet issues. I'd give it a good cleaning, totally change out the pellets, and then call them if that doesn't do the trick.
