How to Make Paleo BBQ Chicken Skewers and Vegetables

1. In a medium-sized bowl or a resealable bag, combine chicken and bbq sauce and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours before grilling.

2. In another medium-sized or resealable bag, combine mushrooms, bell peppers, zucchini, avocado oil, sea salt, and black pepper and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours before grilling.

3. When you are ready, preheat the grill (or cast iron grill pan) to medium heat (about 375 degrees). If you are using wooden skewers, start soaking them in water (this will keep the skewers from starting on fire).

4. Thread 4 skewers with marinated chicken and thread the remaining 4 skewers by alternating vegetables. (I’ve found that grilling the meat and vegetables separate allows me to leave the vegetables on longer without overcooking the meat).

5. Grill skewers over direct heat for 10 to 15 minutes, turning every 2 minutes or until meat is cooked and vegetables are fork-tender.

How to Store Paleo BBQ Chicken Skewers and Vegetables

Remove meat and vegetables from their skewers and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days. Grill extras for leftovers! This recipe is excellent for adding to your favorite salad, meal prepping the week’s lunch, serving over a bed of riced cauliflower, or cutting up and making an egg bake for the week’s breakfast.

Essential Equipment for Making Paleo BBQ Chicken Skewers and Vegetables

Bamboo or Metal Skewers – Bamboo skewers are inexpensive and easily sourced. If you are trying to avoid waste, switching to metal skewers are great for long-term use.

Grill or Cast Iron Grill Pan – I love using our charcoal grill for grilling! I know many people don’t have the room for one or don’t feel comfortable over an open fire, so another option is using a cast iron grill pan over the stove.

Basic Staples for Making Paleo BBQ Chicken Skewers and Vegetables

Chicken – For most of us hunting down or raising our own chicken is out of the question, so the next best option is purchasing locally pastured raised chickens. You can typically find pastured raised chickens at farmer’s markets, co-ops, local farms, and butchers.

Produce – Local or organic produce is always best. If you can not source either, buying conventional produce will work! It’s best to wash all produce before using!

Avocado Oil – Avocado oil is perfect for cooking at high temperatures because of it’s high smoke point.

Sea Salt – Everyone has their opinion on the best sea salt, so use whatever’s in your kitchen.

Black Pepper – I prefer freshly ground black pepper, but use whatever’s in your kitchen!
