 Thanks to a little lime juice and some smokey seasonings, our market fresh chickens, sweet peppers, and red onions all get to “sing” in this easy recipe. Who knew barbecue could taste this good and be this simple!

  1. In large bowl, combine 1/4 cup barbecue sauce with remainder of marinade ingredients. Place chicken in marinade, let sit in refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
  2. Build kebabs on skewers, making sure to alternate between peppers, onions, and chicken.
