These honey mustard chicken skewers are so easy to make and tasty too. They’re grilled in just 25 minutes and are delicious served in wraps with a salad.
Honey mustard chicken skewers are perfect for an indoor BBQ!
Succulent pieces of tender grilled chicken marinated in a beautiful sweet and delicately spiced honey mustard sauce. What’s not to like?
Plus, this is a really simple meal to prepare.
You marinate the chicken the night before (recommended, although you can marinate for less time) so you’ve got something really quick to grill for your dinner that night.
Then just serve in wraps with a simple crispy iceberg lettuce salad with cucumber and tomatoes.
Quick healthy meals that’s what I’m all about and this honey mustard chicken skewers recipe is no exception.
Now, this is how we usually do a Scottish BBQ. By grilling. Indoors. Because it frequently rains!
How To Cook Honey Mustard Chicken Skewers
You’ll need 4 pre-soaked wooden skewers (if using wooden skewers) to ensure they don’t burn whilst you’re grilling them.
First thread a piece of marinated chicken onto a skewer then a chunk of red pepper then a slice of onion and then a chunk of green pepper then another piece of chicken.
Repeat this process 3 more times on the first skewer and then repeat this process on the other 3 skewers.
Thread any remaining chicken or vegetables on at the end so none goes to waste
Ensure that when you place your honey mustard chicken skewers on your grill pan you place a sheet of aluminium foil underneath.
This helps to reflect the heat through and also means less mess at the end for when you’re cleaning up in your grill pan!
When placing your grill pan under the grill make sure you don’t grill the chicken skewers too near the top of the grill.
This avoids burning the chicken. Turn the chicken skewers regularly to ensure the chicken and vegetables are cooked through evenly.
They just need to be grilled for approximately 20 to 25 minutes until the chicken is browned a little.
You want them that way and not burnt, just tender and juicy.
Of course, to be sure that the chicken is cooked take a piece off and split it in half to check it isn’t still pink inside.

Honey Mustard Chicken Skewers
Honey Mustard Marinade:
- 100 ml no fat yogurt
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 tsp runny honey
- 2 tsp wholegrain mustard
- 1 tsp Dijon mustard
- 2 chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
- 1 red bell pepper cut into bite sized chunks
- 1 green bell pepper cut into bite sized chunks
- 1 onion peeled and cut into bite sized slices
- 1 tbsp fresh coriander chopped
- If you’re using wooden skewers (4 are needed) soak them in warm water to prevent them from burning.
- Place the honey mustard marinade ingredients into a jar and shake well.
- Place the chicken into a bowl and spoon the marinade over the chicken and then massage into the chicken using your hands. Cover the bowl and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour (although overnight is better).
- First thread a piece of chicken onto a skewer then a chunk of red pepper then a slice of onion and then a chunk of green pepper then another piece of chicken. Do this 3 more times in this skewer and then repeat this process on the other 3 skewers. Thread any remaining chicken or vegetables on at the end so none goes to waste.
- Place a sheet of aluminium foil on a grill pan, then place the skewers on the rack and place the pan under a hot grill about ¾ of the way from the top.
- Turn the skewers at least every 5 minutes whilst grilling to ensure each side gets the same amount of cooking. Grill for 20 - 25 minutes.
- Before serving check the chicken is cooked by cutting a piece in half to ensure it’s no longer pink in the middle.
