Traeger Grilled Chicken Kabobs

These Traeger Grilled Chicken Kabobs take tender pieces of chicken breast and marinate them in a herbed vinaigrette before being skewered and grilled right on your pellet grill!

Traeger Grilled Chicken Kabobs

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 bell 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.

So tender, and juicy, and all the things you wish your 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 Pellet Grill Chicken Kabobs

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.

My husband and I loved this recipe! The marinade is amazing! It will definitely be a go-to recipe when guests are here.

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.

I too had problems with my Traeger. It would kick off when trying to do higher temps. It is only 3 years old. We called Traeger and the problem appeared to the probe that monitors the temp. They sent a new that included the probe and electronics. My husband changed it out and the problem is solved. Now to try making pulled pork with the Costco sirloin tip roasts. . . . .

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.
