Whether you own a gas grill, charcoal burner or hunker down miserably in an overpriced studio with a tiny oven created for elves, you should have a few chicken kabob recipes in your arsenal. Use any vegetable that stays on a skewer. Tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, zucchini and mushrooms make good choices. Chicken kabobs should be cooked over a high heat regardless of your method. Like if using a stove, set it to broil. If you use wooden skewers, remember to soak them in water for at least fifteen minutes to prevent them from burning.
