Grilling season is finally here! Unless you live in my house… in which case grilling season never really left. By large majority, however, open season for outdoor cooking begins around Memorial Day and we are creeping up on that at a fast clip. Before you know it, it’ll be too hot to justify turning on the oven. Firing up the grill means a nice cool evening inside while the sweltering heat stays outside. Speaking of bringing the heat, these Grilled Buffalo Chicken Kebabs are beyond perfect.
Tender seasoned chicken breast is skewered with bell peppers and onions then lightly seasoned with Cajun seasoning and basted with buttery Buffalo sauce. It makes for an ultra flavorful, super simple meal that is ready in a snap. Serve with a side of red beans and rice and a crisp salad for a Cajun/Buffalo fusion meal that will knock our socks off!
Side note: if you are whipping up these kebabs for a party (maybe like a Super Bowl party or something) skip the pepper and onions and double up on chicken for the ultimate boneless skinless Buffalo chicken skewer!
I especially love these kebabs for big groups. I can assemble and season the kebabs ahead of time, then when guests start arriving I can toss them on the hot grill. They cook quickly since everything is diced into smaller pieces so they will be ready by the time your guests are hungry. To help temper the spice, serve with ranch dressing for dipping. We all know how well ranch and Buffalo sauce go together!
Bonus: these kebabs make ridiculously delicious leftovers. Wrap a few in foil and reheat on the grill for a few minutes per side and they are to die for!
