Summer days and nights are meant to be enjoyed over simple dinners shared with family and friends. We love meals made entirely on the grill, no-bake pasta salads, or even just simple homemade pizzas.

But of all the summer recipes, we love kebobs the most. Something about a good chicken kebob is always so much fun!

This recipe is special for its bright colors, ease of making, and of course, deliciousness.

You’ll need steamed rice, chicken, lots of fresh herbs, cucumber, plenty of Tzatziki sauce, and feta cheese.

Step 1: make the Greek dressing

Whisk together olive oil with red wine vinegar. Then add balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic, fresh basil, oregano, and a good pinch of chili flakes. Season with salt and pepper.

The dressing will be used for both the chicken and the bell peppers.

Step 2: marinate the chicken 

If you have time, you can season the chicken a day or two ahead of time. Not only will this make dinner prep fast, but it will also add flavor to the chicken.

First, season with smoked paprika, then the dressing. The dressing is key, but the smoked paprika will add lots of yummy flavor too.

Step 3: grill the skewers 

Preheat your grill – or you can easily use the oven too. Grill the peppers over an open flame or on your grill gates. Get them charred all over, then place them in a bowl to steam. Once the peppers have steamed, slice, and toss them with the dressing.

Simultaneously, I grill the skewers up until light grill marks appear.

Step 4: assemble

First, add plenty of rice to a bowl. Next, add the charred, marinated peppers and the chicken. Finish with pepperoncini. Oh, plus lots of crumbled-up feta cheese.

So yummy!

I usually serve the bowl with warm naan (or pitas) topped with fresh basil, dill, and oregano.

Such a fun and bright dinner for any night of the week. And I love enjoying the leftovers the next day for lunch! Also, the sauce will last all week and can be used in multiple recipes. So you gotta love that!

Chicken Skewers + Peppers


  • 1. To make the vinaigrette: combine all ingredients in a bowl or glass jar.
    2. Mix the chicken, half of the vinaigrette, and the paprika in a bowl. Thread the chicken onto the skewers.
    3. Set your grill, grill pan, or skillet to medium-high heat. Grill the peppers until charred all over, place in a large bowl, cover and let steam for 10 minutes. Remove the charred skin, then deseed and slice the peppers. Submerge the charred peppers in the vinaigrette.
    4. Simultaneously grill the skewers until lightly charred and cooked through, turning them occasionally throughout cooking, about 10 to 12 minutes total. 
    5. In a bowl, mix the Tzaziki sauce with the mayo and lemon juice. Stir in the crumbled feta.
    6. To assemble, add the rice to a bowl. Top with peppers, chicken, and any other desired toppings. Add a few dollops of feta. Dress with Tzaziki sauce.

    YUM!! So flavorful and delicious! Thank you Tieghan for giving us delicious recipes! My family and I appreciate you so much!

    1. Hey Lexi,
      Wonderful! I am so glad to hear this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for making it! Happy Easter! xT

    I absolutely LOVED this recipe. I used a normal pan to blacken the peppers, and instead of skewering the chicken I just cooked it in a pan. This recipe turned out so well, I’m so proud of myself. I never knew how recipe roasted peppers were.

    1. Thanks a lot, Charlotte!! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe turned out well for you, thanks for your comment! Xx

  3. Just a question:): How could I use the oven for this? Would you recommend broiling them and if so, what do I use. I don’t have a grill, but would love to make this. Thank you!

    1. Hey Stephanie,
      You could use a grill pan or a skillet inside on the stove top and follow the recipe as written:) I hope this helps! xT

    Excellent! I do have a question. When you say you can season the chicken a day or two ahead, you mean only with the paprika, right? I marinated the chicken in the vinaigrette for 30 minutes – I was worried the chicken would not fare well for much longer, but would like to clarify. How long do you marinate the chicken in the vinaigrette?

  5. 5 stars
    Delicious but the peppers were the star! I probably didn’t marinate chicken long enough, but it was still a keeper recipe!

  6. This looks delicious! Mind sharing how to cook them in the oven (temps, times, etc.). My grill is out of commission, lol. Thank you!!
