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 your 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!Buffalo Chicken Skewer

You really can’t go wrong when this is what you dish up! Grilled Buffalo Chicken is always perfect for big groups. These can be assembled and seasoned ahead of time, then when guests start arriving toss them on the hot grill. Skewers cook quickly since everything is diced into smaller pieces, they will be ready by the time your guests are hungry. A great way to make sure your chicken is cooked all the way through is to use a good thermometer. I always recommend the Thermapen from ThermoWorks.

To help temper the spice on these Grilled Buffalo Chicken Skewers, serve with ranch dressing for dipping. We all know how well ranch and Buffalo sauce go together! These are always perfect for tailgaiting, or when you are assigned the appetizer!! Bring these and steal the show, everyone will be talking about your dish!!

Keyword: Grilled Buffalo Chicken Skewers
Servings: 3 people


  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts diced into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 red bell pepper diced into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 green bell pepper diced into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 small yellow onion diced into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning Your favorite brand works, I've also used Old Bay Seasoning (not necessarily Cajun, but delicious!)
  • 1/2 cup Frank's Buffalo sauce
  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • 6 bamboo skewers


  • Before skewering your kebabs, allow your bamboo skewers to soak in water for 2 hours. This will help them not to burn on the hot grill. If you are using metal skewers, skip this step! Preheat your grill to medium high (around 425-450 degrees F)
  • Alternate chicken, peppers, and onions on your skewers. After all of the ingredients have been placed on the skewers, season with the Cajun seasoning.

  • Place your kebabs on the grill and allow to cook on one side for 6-8 minutes. Flip once and continue cooking on the other side for an additional 6-8 minutes.

  • While the kebabs cook, heat the Buffalo sauce and salted butter over medium heat on your stove top. Stir well to combine. Take the Buffalo sauce mixture out to the grill and baste each kebab liberally.

  1. Didn’t have red and green peppers. Used zucchini, squash, and onions. Quick, easy, and absolutely delicious, will definitely make again and would make a delicious appetizer with just chicken. Thanks, and keep those delicious recipes coming!

    1. Using a great thermometer is my biggest recommendation. Pull the chicken off the grill at 160 degrees F and wrap tightly with foil. This can help bring up the internal temperature the last 5 degrees and keep everything moist.

  2. These look mighty tasty! But, before I try them, could you address my confusion on the seasoning: is it Old Bay or Cajun? Cajun is mentioned in your intro and on the video, but Old Bay is in the recipe. Will either work? If it’s Cajun, is there a brand or recipe you recommend? Or maybe it’s one and the same to some, although, as a native Marylander, Old Bay is not the same as Cajun. Thanks!
