Prep Time: 30min | Cook Time: 20min

  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 Tablespoons 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 teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Toss to coat.
  5. Season chicken with remaining 1/4 teaspoon. 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!
