These Maple Glazed Chicken Kabobs are the perfect way to kick off summer-time grilling! Chicken and vegetable kabobs with an addicting maple glaze!
An Easy Chicken Recipe For The Grill
Why does putting something on a stick make it taste better? Or make it more fun? You got me, but it sure does. For instance, a corn dog. Way better than a regular hot dog. Little meatball appetizers with toothpicks…way more fun that a bowl of meatballs on the table.
And any type of kabob recipe like these Maple Glazed Chicken Kabobs. They’re just going to bring the fun.
We even make this kabob recipe during the winter on a grill pan inside. We aren’t luck enough to live in a climate that’s warm year round so we make the best with what we have!
How Do You Make These Maple Glazed Chicken Kabobs?
The kabobs are so easy to put together, just add pieces of chicken and vegetables like we have here to wooden or metal skewers. If you’re using wooden skewers make sure you soak them for a couple of hours in water so they don’t burn up on the grill.
First we marinated the chicken in half of the maple whiskey glaze, just to make it extra flavorful.
The maple glaze comes together really easily, just add a few ingredients to a small pot, let it come to a boil to thicken and then let it reduce to thicken even more. Once it’s done it will be nice and thick and, well, glazy.
Just about when the kabobs are done, you can start basting them with more of the maple glaze. Don’t do this too early because the glaze will burn if it stays too long on the heat. Give them a coating, let the kabobs cook a few minutes and then glaze them again. Double or triple glazed kabobs are always better!

For the Glaze
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon grated ginger

- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 1/2 cups chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons orange juice
- 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon of water
- Wooden or metal skewers, if using wooden skewers you need to soak them for a half an hour before you use them
- Mix together all of the ingredients for the glaze together in a bowl. Divide the glaze in half, putting half in a resealable bag and half in a saucepan.
- Add the cubed chicken to the storage bag and marinate for 4-6 hours.
- After the chicken has marinated, drain excess marinade and discard the marinade.
- Begin the glaze to a boil in the saucepan over medium heat. Once it comes to a boil, add the cornstarch mixture, whisking to combine and bring to a simmer. Once the glaze has thickened, turn the heat down to low or cover and turn the heat off.
- Start putting the chicken and vegetables on the skewers in an alternating pattern. You could also do skewers of all vegetables and all chicken if you don’t want to combine them together.
- Place the kabobs on a grill over medium-high heat, cooking for 3-4 minutes a side until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables have softened.
- Baste the kabobs with the glaze and cook an additional 1-2 minutes per side. Repeat with 1-2 more coatings of the glaze.
- These kabobs can be made with steak of fish too! Or keep them all vegetables for a vegetarian meal.
