      You can most definitely broil these but you will have to adjusting broiling time as needed depending on the settings you use.

    These sound so delish!!! Could they be made in the oven or on a griddle? We don’t have a grill available right now.

    The whole family loved these kabobs. Super easy and super delicious. We split the chicken and marinated half of the batch as the recipe states and the other half we added two tablespoons of garlic chili sauce. Both were excellent!! We definitely will keep this recipe for future meals!
