How To Make Chicken Shish Kabobs At The Campsite

This recipe calls for a few fresh veggies … if you shy away from making camping veggies because of the challenge of keeping them fresh, we’ve got tips to help you!

Camping veggies and how to keep food fresh while camping by CampingForFoodies is an image of bright and colorful fresh raw vegetables scattered on a rustic wooden table ready to be prepared for a camping meal with text over the image that reads camping veggies.

Step 1. Prep the veggies and the chicken

You will be chopping an onion,
bell pepper
and cutting the chicken into bite sized pieces.

Step 2. Marinate the veggies and the chicken

It’s nice to do a quick prep for camping dinner recipes that sit in a marinade for a few hours while you take a hike or relax around camp.

Because the chicken takes a little longer to cook, you will
be separating it from the veggies on the skewers so it is easiest to marinate
them in separate bags.

Marinating Chicken Shish Kabobs by CampingForFoodies features one food storage bag filled with marinating white onions, yellow bell peppers and mushrooms, another food storage bag filled with marinating cubed chicken and a third food storage bag filled with cherry tomatoes with text over the image that reads chicken shish kabobs.

Place the chicken with half the marinade in one bag.

Camp Cooking Tip: If you are gluten intolerant, check the label on the salad dressing you’re using because this is a great recipe for people looking for gluten free camping food.

Place the onion, bell pepper and mushrooms in another bag with
the rest of the marinade.  

Refrigerate for 4 hours to let the marinade do its magic.

Note: Even though the bags are sealed, you want to make sure you don’t cross-contaminate your other food stored in your refrigerator or cooler.

Step 3. Thread the skewers

Camp Cooking Tip: We like using metal skewers but if you use wooden ones, make sure you soak them in water before you spear your food and begin cooking so they don’t catch on fire during the cooking process … especially if you are grilling these kabobs over a campfire or charcoal grill.


Step 4. Prepare to cook

The nice thing about grilled camp meals is the flexibility
of cooking them.

You can make this as one of our easy campfire recipes if you have a campfire grill grate.

It can also be made as one of our camp stove recipes if you want to use a cast iron grill pan set on your stove top.

Step 5. Grill over medium heat

You will be grilling the skewers over a medium heat.

Start the chicken first because it takes a little longer to
cook than the veggies.

Cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 15-20
minutes … and the veggies are tender, about 10 minutes.

Some of my favorite easy camping meals include meat and veggies in one recipe.

Step 5. Serve and enjoy

Be careful because the skewers are hot.

Remove the kabobs from the skewers and serve over rice.
