Chicken Kebabs with whole cloves of garlic and huge pieces of broccoli, smothered in Kobe Sauce. You could use teriyaki, tamari, or mongolian sauce for this too. It’s divine and distinctly girlie with a little bit of edge. Just the way I like it!
This is serious chick food for the grill. I love this recipe. It remind me of a chicken stir fry but on a stick. Which makes it cool chick food. You’re welcome.
Okay I kid, men would like this too. I think. I’m not entirely sure. I may have gobbled it all up while my hubs was out of town.
Maybe we need some male volunteers to try this. Any takers?
Seriously man, don’t be such pansies, chick food keeps you svelte for weekend date nights. It’s win-win.
You know, like winner winner chicken dinner.
*stupidest saying ever, yet I laugh every time*
Enjoy with some Grilled Potatoes with Garlic and Chipotle Spice. See, I got your back man. Chick dinner with kick ass manly potatoes. It’s all good in the hood. You’re welcome!

Chicken, Garlic and Broccoli Kebabs
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into cubes
- 1 head of garlic cloves will be used whole
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets as big of pieces as you can manage
- Salt and Pepper to taste I recommend pepper being used at the end, not before cooking
- 1/2 cup of Kobe Sauce
- Preheat your grill to medium heat.
- Cut up your chicken into cubes, set aside.
- Cut up your broccoli, set aside.
- Pull all the cloves from the garlic, but leave them whole.
- Now thread the ingredients on the skewers. I used about two cloves of garlic per skewer.
- Sprinkle generously with salt.
- Brush with Kobe Sauce.
- Pop them on the grill and cook for about 5 to 6 minutes on each side.
- If you want them cooked a bit more you can keep indirect heat on one side of the grill and move them over there after for another 3 to 4 minutes. This will completely depend on how big the size is of your cubes.
- Remove from grill and allow to rest for a few minutes.
- Serve with a big old I love Chick Food smile!
If using wooden skewers soak them first. I soak mine for an hour, but you can do them for as little as 30 minutes. If you use metal skewers you can wrap the ends if tinfoil. You can also take tinfoil and line the edge of the grill where they would rest with tinfoil. That way they are not scorching hot when you handle them.
Hope you enjoyed today’s tip!
What’s your favourite kind of sauce for chicken kebabs?
I like anything with garlic in it. I can never get enough garlic in my life. It makes me super happy.
Thank you for spending some time with me today!
I hope you get a chance to try this chick food. You are going to be pleasantly surprised with this one. Don’t be shocked if the dudes eat this all up before the gals get a chance. It’s that good.
Don’t be afraid of char on your veggies when you cook them. There’s flavour in that. It’s like roasting them. It takes them from good to great. Trust me!
Now be confident and get your grill on!

These look amazing. I happened to see your link on Google+, and decided to follow it. One question, what is Kobe sauce? It sounds yummy
Thanks Aaron. I buy it at Costco. It’s sort of like a stir fry sauce. The one I use is called Tonton Kobe BBQ and it’s described as a Yakiniku Brazier Sauce. I just grabbed the bottle to see the ingredients and I would call it an Asian BBQ Sauce. It has lots of soy sauce, pear, garlic, sake wine, , miso, sesame oil, onions and apples. It’s a lovely sauce for kebabs and stir fries. If you can’t find it try using Tamari Sauce. It’s like Teriyaki but a million times better in my humble opinion. Hope that helps. *queen of the over share*
@Kim – I’m a *huge* fan of the Tonton Kobe BBQ sauce, but my local Costco stopped selling it ages ago, and I’m not about to pay the (quite frankly) high prices on their website. Which Costco do you buy it at? I’m very anxious to replenish my supplies!
I think I found that bottle at the Windsor Costco. If not it would have been London Ontario. Those tend to be the only two I shop at. I just ran out so I’m hoping they have more. I should learn to buy multiples of everything.
Do you have a recipe for Kobe sauce? I’ve never heard of it.
It’s a thick Tamari sauce I buy. You could use any Tamari or even Teriyaki sauce for this.
Who would have thought I would love grilled Broccoli so much. I should have known, I love everything grilled. I am so happy to find this blog, I am the grill master in this house. Thanks!
Do you peel the cloves first?
Yes, absolutely. Any recipe like this you would. The only time I wouldn’t peel cloves is if I was doing a whole head of garlic roasted on the grill or in the oven. Have you ever tried that? You just cut the top portion off and then drizzle it with a little olive oil, then pop on the grill or oven and bake it for 30 to 45 minutes. Then you spread it on bread like butter. It’s heavenly. And now I’m craving roasted garlic.
Hope that helped. Queen of the over-share here.

What is Kobe sauce? Or which one? When I googled to find out what it was many different kinds came up… white wine sauce, bbq sauce, white sauce…
Hi Tracey. Here’s the one I use- http://www.presidentschoice.ca/en_CA/products/productlisting/pc_memories_of_kobe_tamari_garlic_sauce9343.html. It reminds me of a thick tamari sauce. If you can’t find it you can use teriyaki, tamari or soy sauce. Hope that helps. xx
could you blanch/or microwave the broccoli first to get it “a little” done? I don’t mean really soft but I don’t care for hard broccoli
Absolutely. I like mine soft too so I use smallish pieces. It should soften enough on the grill but you could totally do that first. I love steamed broccoli. It’s so good with just a touch of salt on it.
This was absolutely delicious! I threw in a little curry powder and some cumin to flavor it up a bit. Loved the cinnamon, I’ve never tried that in meat before but I certainly will in the future. Thank you!
SO good! The whole family gobbled them up!
Yeah, so happy to hear that.
Your kebabs look amazing! I’m no baker but love preparing meat and I’ll definitely try it.
Thanks so much.
