Apartment Shish Kabobs

We live in an apartment and one of the rules of the neighborhood is that we can't have grills.  This is a huge bummer, especially now that Summer is here.  Soooo....this week I decided to simulate a usually grilled food inside under the broiler - shish kabobs!  Here's how you do it...

1 clove garlic, peeled
4-5 tablespoons olive oil
Your favorite kabob meat cut into 1 inch cubes
Your favorite kabob veggies cut into 1 inch cubes

First, grate the garlic clove with a microplane grater into a small bowl.  If you don't have a microplane, you can chop finely.  Then, after dinner, drive directly to the store and buy one.  ;)

Add your olive oil, salt, & pepper to the bowl and stir thoroughly.  You can also get creative here and add herbs, cayenne pepper, balsamic vinegar, lime juice - whatever you like!

Skewer your meat and veggies and then brush the garlic olive oil on all sides.  I kept my chicken and veggie skewers separate because I wanted BBQ sauce on the chicken only.  Once you've brushed the oil on, you can start cooking immediately OR let the skewers marinate in the fridge for an hour for extra yumminess!

Broil in the oven, turning your kabobs until all sides are cooked and starting to get brown.  I brushed BBQ sauce on my chicken about halfway through.  And that's it!  These were yummy and the possibilities are endless.  Try it!


  1. If you have a crockpot, here's a cheater BBQ recipe that earned an enthusiastic thumbs up from Aaron;

  2. I'll have to try that! I've done BBQ pulled chicken in the crock pot and have been wanting to try pork. Thanks Kim!


Leave me some love!
