BBQ Chicken Tenderloin Kabobs - Just 5 ingredients, this is the perfect grilled chicken!

Here’s a fun fact about me—I am a huge Guy Fieri fan. Imagine my glee when I found out that he’s hosting a fun show on Food Network called Guy’s Grocery Games!

Sunday, May 25th’s episode, (that you can catch at 8/7c), will feature a grilling challenge. Inspired by the theme, I decided to have a little grilling challenge of my own, right at home!

My mission was to create an original BBQ recipe for the grill that uses no more than 5 food ingredients, so, over the weekend I made a quick trip to the supermarket to gather my ingredients.

I wanted to make a simple BBQ recipe that would be flavorful and satisfying for me and my husband, but also mild enough for my picky children to enjoy.

I ended up creating a super fast and easy barbecue sauce using just ketchup, dark brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and garlic. I put this wonderful barbecue sauce on some skewered chicken tenderloins and boom—amazing BBQ chicken tenderloin kabobs that the whole family loved.

What is it about threading meat on skewers that makes it taste that much better? These grilled chicken tenderloin kabobs were incredible, and will definitely be making their way into my family’s regular meal rotation for the summer.

You can grab the recipe below. I hope you love these grilled chicken tenderloin kabobs as much as my family did. You can thank Guy’s Grocery Games for the inspiration, and don’t forget to check out the new episode on Food Network this Sunday at 8/7c.

    Hi Crissy. Oh gosh! I thank the existence of Pinterest coz I found several of your food pins on my feeds. And this BBQ recipe is hella delish. The skewer marks make it even more sumptuous. And the sauce!!! Worcestershire, brown sugar, garlic, and ketchup have always been such a good combo. This is really a perfect example of classic BBQ sauce that never gets old. No need for more spices and flavorings. I make it over and over again in my pantry even without the meat. I like to pour it on my rice, and voila, I have a complete meal.
