“Every man gotta right to decide his own destiny.” Bob Marley

Be a legend on the grill like Bob Marley is to music, and impress your family and friends with this easy recipe for Jamaican grilled chicken and vegetable kebabs.

This recipe is like a Caribbean vacation on a stick, complete with a Jamaican-inspired jalapeno marinade that packs the heat and is sure to satisfy your taste buds!


Kebabs Ingredients:

  • 1 lb chicken breast (skinless, boneless)
  • 2 bell peppers (red, yellow or orange)
  • 1 red or white onion (medium-size)
  • 2 cobs of corn
  • bamboo or metal skewers

Marinade Ingredients:

  • 1 garlic clove (peeled and chopped finely)
  • 3 green onions (chopped finely)
  • ½ jalapeno (chopped finely)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp orange juice
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • ½ tsp salt



  • Combine all marinade ingredients together and blend. If you do not have a blender, mix all ingredients together in a small bowl using a fork.
  • Cut chicken into 2 inch cubes and throw in a zip-tight plastic bag with marinade. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
  • While the chicken is marinating, rinse and chop red peppers and onions into large pieces. Shuck corn and chop into 1-inch wide pieces (see picture above). Toss vegetables with 1 tbsp olive oil in a small bowl.
  • While the barbecue preheats, skewer the chicken, red pepper, onions and corn.
  • Cook kebabs  for a total of 10 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink inside.


Pro Tip: If you’re using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for at least 20 minutes prior to grilling to prevent them from burning.
