Big Green Egg Honey Lime Chicken Kabobs

Big Green Egg Honey Lime Chicken Kabobs

I am just getting back from my weekend in Windsor, Vermont cooking and supporting the Dizzy Pig BBQ Competition Team at the 2015 Harpoon Championships of NE Barbeque. I wanted to cook something easy but savory to get my week started. I spent a good deal of my time this weekend helping to sell some of the Dizzy Pig seasonings at their vending table. During my time selling their rubs I talked about making Chicken Kabobs using the Pineapple Head rub. As a result, I was craving Chicken Kabobs all weekend long!!! So, that was the inspiration for this quick and easy summertime dish. Now sit back,  grab a Harpoon IPA, and enjoy this recipe for Big Green Egg Honey Lime Chicken Kabobs.

I mixed 3 parts honey to 1 part lime juice for the glaze.

I preheated the Big Green Egg to 400° and placed the kabobs on over direct heat. I glazed the kabobs with the honey lime glaze every couple of minutes as they cooked.

I continued to cook the kabobs direct for 4 minutes per side or until they measured 165°. Once done, I pulled them off and let them rest for 5 minutes before serving.
