Grilled Chicken Fajita Kabobs & A Giveaway

I can’t believe summer is almost over. I am always sad to see it go, but we are going to celebrate this weekend with one final BBQ. Make the most of the long holiday weekend by getting out the grill and making Grilled Chicken Fajita Kabobs. This easy recipe is perfect for Labor Day weekend!

We love making kabobs because you can prepare them in advance and throw them on the grill when you are ready. These Grilled Chicken Fajita Kabobs have a spicy marinade that is easy to make. The onion and  red, yellow, and green bell peppers add great color and flavor to the kabobs.

We like to serve this chicken kabob recipe with Bush’s Beans Sweet Mesquite Grillin’ Beans, black beans simmered with onions and red peppers in a sweet and smoky sauce.

Enjoy the final days of summer by making these Grilled Chicken Fajita Kabobs! We hope you have a happy and safe Labor Day weekend!

Grilled Chicken Fajita Kabobs

Yield: Serves 4

Chicken fajitas on the grill-perfect for any summer meal!


For the Fajita Marinade:

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

For the Kabobs:

1 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 3/4 inch pieces
1 red onion, cut into 3/4 inch pieces
1 red pepper, cut into 3/4 inch pieces
1 yellow pepper, cut into 3/4 inch pieces
1 green pepper, cut into 3/4 inch pieces


1. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, oregano, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes.

2. Place the chicken in Ziploc bag with the fajita marinade. Seal the bag and make sure all of the chicken pieces are well coated. Place the bag in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours.

3. When ready to cook, preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Thread marinated chicken, onion, and peppers onto skewers. Discard leftover marinade.

4. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place the kabobs on the grill, cover, and cook until the chicken is opaque throughout, about 8-12 minutes, turning once or twice during cooking. Transfer to a warmed platter and serve immediately.

Note-if using wooden skewers soak them in water 20 minutes before using.

    Brigette’s Grilled chicken with Bush’s Southwestern Beans!

  10. Margaret R — August 31, 2012 @ 8:16 am

    I make awesome burgers. I mix the meat with several spices, shreaded cheese, bread crumbs and egg. Everyone I have cooked them for has really loved them. My family won’t eat burgers any other way. I would pair them with the original Bush’s baked beans. Why mess with perfection.

  11. Diane — August 31, 2012 @ 8:39 am

    I would love bbq pulled pork with the Bush’s bourbon and brown sugar grillin beans! Happy Labor Day!!

  12. Andrea — August 31, 2012 @ 8:44 am

    Bush’s beans would go great with my ribs – we use a rub of several spices and a touch of brown sugar and let it soak overnight. The next day we slow roast in the oven and grill for a bit at the end. Delish! Black Bean Fiesta would be my choice to serve!!

  13. Elisa Gibson — August 31, 2012 @ 9:11 am

    I make pork kabob. I cut the pork in cubes and one onion in rings. I put these ingridients in a ziploc bag and pour some red wine,pomegranate juice and the juice of 1 lemon over it. I also put some salt , pepper and a little thyme in it. Then you knead to meat a bit after that you had a little olive oil. I’ll let it marinate in the fridge for about 24 hours. Thread the meat on skewers and grill them. I serve them with the sweet mesquite beans. I got this recipe when we used to live in Germany.Everyone loves it when I make it because it’s a totally different flavor.

    For a final summer bbq I would grill up “Dad’s Loaded Chicken Skewers” and serve them with Bush’s Steakhouse Beans. I love my dad’s skewers because they’re loaded with tasty and different ingredients like Kilbasa, small new potatoes, mushrooms and tomatoes. It wouldn’t be summer without them!

  15. Brooke P. — August 31, 2012 @ 9:29 am

    “Lime Chicken with a kick”- lime juice, garlic, serrano peppers, oil with black bean fiesta as a side for the perfect Grilled Mexican flavored meal!

  16. Brittany Nunley — August 31, 2012 @ 9:32 am

    “Spicy Orange-Mustard Chicken” and I would serve it with the texas ranchero beans. :)

  17. Mary — August 31, 2012 @ 9:35 am

    Being from Wisconsin we love our BRATS! I have a wonderful recipe for marinated brats that are cut up into pieces, added other ingredients and made into kebobs…serve those up with Bush’s Grillin’ Black Bean Fiesta and some corn on the cob for a perfect Wisconsin Summer meal.

  18. Judith — August 31, 2012 @ 9:35 am

    The first BBQ dinner we had this year we tried your recipe for Honey Lemon & Rosemary Grilled Chicken. The family loved it so I have made it several times this summer. I would serve Bush’s Southern Pit BBQ beans with the chicken.

  19. Jennifer Madigan — August 31, 2012 @ 9:37 am

    We love to grill burgers. I’m always trying new recipes (which I usually find on Pinterest) so that we can have a variety of flavors. We love to pair them with Bush’s beans and as far as a favorite hmmmmmm (it changes) right now though I would say that it would be the Southern Pit BBQ

  20. Micky — August 31, 2012 @ 9:37 am

    We make a Hawaiian-style Chicken kebob and I would serve it with original Bush’s baked beans. I think the sweetness in the beans will be brought out by the teriykai glaze we use on the chicken. We love to grill during the summer whenever we have family or friends in town. Sad to see Summer end, but ready for Fall!

  21. Wendy P — August 31, 2012 @ 9:44 am

    Bush sothern pit beans along with an easy italian dressing marinade chicken breast is always a family favorite.

  22. marla — August 31, 2012 @ 9:45 am

    These kebabs are perfect for the long weekend and any time at all!! Great giveaway too :)

  23. Amy — August 31, 2012 @ 9:48 am

    I do a loin roast marinated for 3 days in soy sauce, ginger, hot mustard, oil, red pepper flakes, honey, and pepper. I’d serve with the bourbon and brown sugar beans! My husband’s father is the master of this recipe, taught it to him, and then he taught it to me. It’s a recipe that will keep going! We always have to make 2 since everyone devours them at parties.

  24. Darbi — August 31, 2012 @ 9:48 am

    I make steak and chicken kebobs and serve it with corn on the cob and the Homestyle baked beans.

  25. Deb — August 31, 2012 @ 10:02 am

    I have not tried Bush’s Grillin’ Beans yet, but we love several different marinades on steak and chicken and of course the old standbys, barbecue sauce, Italian dressing and teriyaki. We love to grill and even have an extra propane tank so we never run out in the middle of grilling! 😉

  26. Kare @ Kitchen Treaty — August 31, 2012 @ 10:04 am

    What a great idea! I might have to try this with tofu in place of the chicken for mine. And fresh lime margaritas to celebrate the end of summer … naturally!

  27. Laura S. — August 31, 2012 @ 10:08 am

    I haven’t tried Bush’s grilling beans yet – but I do love the original Bush’s beans.

    I enjoy marinated steak and shrimp kabobs because it’s the first grilled meal my fiance and I made together.

  28. Heather K Miller — August 31, 2012 @ 10:16 am

    The southern pit BBQ beans would be delicious along side my grilled BBQ chicken! BBQ chicken is always a hit at bbqs for both adults and kids do its a good BBQ food!

  29. Christina Burrell — August 31, 2012 @ 10:17 am

    I like Pineapple Grilled Chicken served with sweet mesquite bush baked beans.

  30. Jennifer — August 31, 2012 @ 10:29 am

    I love kebabs! I would grill nachos. My sister and I love to eat nachos together, and we inevitably eat too much, but it’s still lots of fun. I’d serve the nachos with the mesquite beans!

  31. Heather LaRue — August 31, 2012 @ 10:42 am

    I would make Grandma B’s grilled chicken served with Bush’s original beans. This is our “go to” recipe for the summer whenever company comes over :)

  32. Marianne — August 31, 2012 @ 10:46 am

    I would serve the Bourbon Brown Sugar beans with either my Root Beer pulled pork (crockpot menu) or some grilled chicken marinated in a Raspberry vinegarette mixture that I make up. Okay, now I’m hungry, I know what we are having for dinner tonight!!

  33. Alicia — August 31, 2012 @ 10:51 am

    My husband’s marinated grilled pork chops with bourbon and brown sugar baked beans.

  34. Kristina N. — August 31, 2012 @ 10:59 am

    I would use the black bean fiesta recipe to go along with my chipotle cilantro lime grilled steak recipe. Marinating meat is one of my favorite things and I love the fresh flavors of black beans and grilled steak fajitas! Summer isn’t over yet!

  35. Camille Thompson — August 31, 2012 @ 11:05 am

    I would marinate boneless chicken thighs in Tampico orange juice, onion, red pepper flakes and chili powder overnite then BBQ them and serve with Bush’s Pinto Beans and
    Jalapeños like I do every big holiday!

  36. Jamie — August 31, 2012 @ 11:13 am

    I like to make my mom’s chicken black bean enchiladas and use the sweet mesquite grillin beans, adds great flavor!

  37. Valerie — August 31, 2012 @ 11:19 am

    I use a chipotle marinade on my chicken when grilling. I don’t always serve with baked beans but I love Bush’s and their Texas Ranchero beans look tempting!

  38. Andrea — August 31, 2012 @ 11:22 am

    Those kabobs look DELIC! And those tools look pretty good too! Thanks so much for the offer :)

  39. Janet R — August 31, 2012 @ 11:34 am

    What a great giveaway! We love grilling! Chicken kabobs are one of my favorites!

  40. Mary — August 31, 2012 @ 11:34 am

    I would serve Tequila Lime Chicken with Bush’s Black Bean Fiesta for a family dinner on the deck. We love Bush’s beans!
