Recipe Box, Honey Mustard Chicken & Vegetable Kebabs

This versatile dish is perfect for summer time grilling,

it’s easy to prepare,

very family friendly,

and also perfect for entertaining

Chicken and vegetables marinated in a tasty honey mustard sauce

then skewered and grilled or broiled

The secret to success for including potatoes on kebabs

is to partially cook them first

Cut petite red potatoes into 1/4s

Place into a large microwave safe bowl with a little water

Cover bowl with plastic wrap or a towel

Microwave for 5 minutes until easily pierced with a fork

Drain water from potatoes

The marinade is a mix of ingredients you probably have on hand,

brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, soy sauce,

mustard, orange juice, honey and olive oil

Mix everything together except the olive oil

You will have approximately 3/4 cup marinade

which you will use 4 ways,

part to marinate the chicken, part for the vegetables,

part for the finishing sauce, and the rest for basting

Cut the chicken into 2 inch chunks* and place into a ziplock bag or bowl

*I used chicken tenders because they are easier to cut into more uniform pieces which ensures even cooking

Pour 3 Tablespoons of olive oil and 1/4 cup of marinade over chicken

and place in the refrigerator for 4-8 hours to marinate

Combine 3 Tablespoons of marinade with sour cream and mayonnaise

to make the honey mustard finishing sauce

Cut zucchini into 1/2 inch slices

and the pepper or peppers into 2 inch squares

Add to the drained potatoes in the bowl

Toss vegetables with 3 Tablespoons marinade,

2 Tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper

Place bowl in refrigerator

When it’s dinner time,

put the chicken and vegetables on skewers

We made skewers with chicken and potatoes

and separate skewers for the vegetables

and added a skewer of large whole mushrooms

Grill* the kebabs on a medium hot grill, 8-10 minutes,

turning skewers and basting with remaining marinade

*You can also cook these in the oven on a foil lined sheet pan on broil, turning and basting, 10-15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through

Drizzle with honey mustard finishing sauce to serve

or put the sauce in small individual bowls for dipping

  • skewers see notes below



  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless chicken
  • 8-10 petite red potatoes
  • 1-2 sweet peppers
  • 1 large zucchini
  • 8 oz. whole mushrooms


  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp yellow mustard
  • 2 Tbsp orange juice I used Blood Orange juice because it was what I had on hand
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • salt & pepper
  • olive oil

Honey Mustard Finishing Sauce

  • 3 Tbsp reserved marinade
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 3 Tbsp mayonnaise



  • Wash and cut potatoes into 1/4s. Place in a large microwave safe bowl and add 2 Tablespoons of water. Cover bowl and microwave on high for 5 minutes or until potatoes are easily pierced with a fork. Drain water from bowl.
  • Combine all the marinade ingredients EXCEPT for olive oil
  • Cut chicken into 2 inch chunks and place in a large ziplock or bowl.
  • Drizzle chicken with 3 Tablespoons of olive oil and 1/4 cup marinade. Refrigerate for 4-8 hours
  • Cut peppers into 2 inch squares and slice zucchini into 1/2" slices. Add to potatoes in bowl and toss with 3 Tablespoons marinade, 2 Tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate.

Honey Mustard Finishing Sauce

  • Combine 3 tablespoons marinade with mustard and mayonnaise. Put in refrigerator until 1 hour before serving time. Let it sit out while you assemble and cook the kebabs so it won't be cold when serving


  • Assemble skewers just before cooking, threading chicken and potatoes on some skewers and the peppers, zucchini and mushrooms on other skewers. You can mix everything on the skewers if desired, but it's easier to cook everything uniformly if they are separated.
  • Cook skewers* on a medium high heat grill, turning and basting with reserved marinade about 8-10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are done to your liking
  • Serve chicken skewers topped with honey mustard finishing sauce or provide it in small bowls on the side for dipping


* You can also broil skewers on a foil lined sheet pan in the oven, basting and turning once or twice, for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through.
**soak bamboo skewers for 30 minutes before using
