Choosing Your Ingredients
The key to great Traeger chicken kabobs is using high-quality ingredients. Start with boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, and slice them into bite-sized pieces. Next, choose your vegetables. Bell peppers, onions, green zucchini, and zucchini are all popular choices, but feel free to get creative. Pineapple, cherry tomatoes, and even peaches can make for delicious additions to your kabobs.
Marinating Your Chicken
Marinating your chicken is essential for adding flavor and moisture. You can use a store-bought marinade, or make your own by combining olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, honey, and your favorite herbs and spices. Let your chicken marinate for at least an hour, or overnight for maximum flavor.
Skewering Your Kabobs
Once your chicken is marinated, it’s time to assemble your kabobs. Soak wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes to prevent them from burning on the grill. Thread your chicken and vegetables onto the skewers, alternating between each ingredient for even cooking.
Grilling Your Kabobs
Preheat your Traeger grill to 400°F and lightly oil the grates. Place your kabobs on the grill and cook for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the vegetables are tender. Brush your kabobs with additional marinade or barbecue sauce during the last few minutes of cooking for added flavor.
Serving Your Kabobs
Once your Traeger chicken kabobs are cooked to perfection, it’s time to serve them up! Remove the skewers from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before serving. Garnish with fresh herbs or a squeeze of lemon juice for an extra burst of flavor.

How Long Do You Cook Chicken Kabobs on the Traeger?
Cooking chicken kabobs on a Traeger grill is simple and easy. The recommended cooking time will depend on the size of your chicken cubes and the temperature of your grill.
For reference, we recommend cooking chicken kabobs on a preheated Traeger grill at 375°F for around 20-25 minutes, turning the kabobs every 5 minutes to ensure that they cook evenly on all sides.
It’s important to keep an eye on the internal temperature of your chicken to make sure it’s cooked all the way through. The best way to do this is by using a meat thermometer, which should read 165°F when the chicken is fully cooked.

To make Traeger chicken kabobs, you’ll need a few key ingredients and some basic grilling equipment. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to prepare and cook these delicious kabobs.
- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts

- 2 tablespoons lemon juice

- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano

- Thread the chicken and vegetables onto the soaked skewers, alternating between the different ingredients. You can also add additional vegetables or fruit such as cherry tomatoes or pineapple chunks if desired.
- Preheat your Traeger grill to high heat, around 450°F, then place the kabobs directly onto the grill grate. Close the lid and cook for around 12-15 minutes, turning every 3-4 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked through and the vegetables are tender.
