Chicken skewers are so easy to make and taste divine. All you need are a few basic tools: wooden skewers, aluminum foil, and a grill! This recipe features my all-time favorite flavor: balsamic vinegar. When it’s heated, the vinegar thickens and becomes sweet with a wonderful aroma.
When I grill meat, I always lay down a piece of aluminum foil before adding the meat. This will keep your grill clean, and the best part, is you’ll still get the gorgeous grill marks. Here are a couple more secrets to get those perfect grill marks:
- Heat your grill to at least 400F or higher.
- Let the meat cook (no peeking).
Want to know the secret to making these melt in your mouth? A balsamic reduction! A drizzle on top will achieve absolute perfection.
Rosemary Balsamic Chicken Skewers
Chicken Skewer Ingredients
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 tablespoon rosemary
- ½ teaspoon ground pepper
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
Balsamic Reduction Ingredients
- 1 cup balsamic vinegar
- 8-10 wooden/metal skewers
- Aluminum foil
- Nonstick cooking spray
- Preheat grill to 400F.
- Prep chicken breast by slicing chicken into 1-inch strips. Stick a skewer through each strip and place on a plate. Grill Master Tip: Make sure each piece of chicken is the same thickness to ensure even cooking.
- Season chicken on both sides with salt, pepper, rosemary, and garlic salt. Drizzle on balsamic vinegar.
- Once grill is heated, place a sheet of aluminum foil on top and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place the chicken skewers onto the grill and let cook for about 5 minutes. Flip and cook the other side for about 3 minutes or until thoroughly cooked all the way through.
- While the chicken is cooking, begin making your balsamic reduction. I followed the method by Oh, She Glows.
This is the perfect recipe for dinner or a tasty appetizer to bring to your next party. Enjoy!
