Recipe By:



  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar (not packed)
  • 1 tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder


  • 1 lb. blue/purple potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 tsp. olive oil or grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. plus 1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper
  • 1 1/4 lbs. raw boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 large onion, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces


1. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20 minutes to prevent burning. (You’ll need eight.)

2. In a medium bowl, combine all sauce ingredients. Stir until uniform.

3. Place potato chunks in a large microwave-safe bowl with 2 tbsp. water. Cover and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir and microwave for 2 more minutes, or until slightly softened.

4. Drain any excess liquid from potatoes. Add oil, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and 1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper. Toss to coat.

5. Season chicken with remaining 1/4 tsp. each salt and black pepper.

6. Alternately thread chicken, onion, bell pepper, and potatoes onto eight skewers.

7. Spray a grill with nonstick spray, and bring to medium-high heat. Grill kebabs for 5 minutes with the grill cover down.

8. Flip kebabs. With the grill cover down, grill for 6 – 8 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and potato has softened. Serve with sauce and enjoy!

This is a splendid recipe. I might try to cut a little from the fat, but overall, 4.5g is not a lot.
