Simple shish kebab recipe, with a delicious twist

5 Minutes to Fitness+ Club coming soon!

kids shis kebab

My assistant chefs and I tried this variation on shish kebab in the 5 Minutes to Fitness+ test kitchen. We used fresh chicken sausage instead of lamb. They loved it so it passes the “kid” test! Remember, let them help and ignore the mess and imperfections while enjoying the smile on their faces :-)


  • 4 links fresh chicken sausage (most food stores will carry this product)
  • 3 sweet peppers (orange, green, red)
  • 1 large red onion
  • seasonings- salt, pepper, olive oil, lemon juice, dried parsley to taste
  • 4 skewers

Recipe: ┬áCut chicken into cubes and vegetables into 1 inch squares. Place everything in a bowl and toss with seasonings. Place ingredients on skewers alternating meet and vegetables. Grill over medium heat for 10 minutes while rotating skewer 1/4 turn every few minutes. Take off grill, drizzle with olive oil & lemon juice and serve over brown rice or whole wheat couscous. Oh yea, keep track of who’s skewer is who’s otherwise you might have a minor melt down like we did :-)
