Fruity Chicken Kabobs with Lemon Pepper Rub

A 99¢ bottle of lemon pepper caught my eye at the store and I used that as my inspiration for some Fruity Chicken Kabobs with Lemon Pepper Rub. Don't hesitate to add peaches and nectarines to kabobs folks, they are amazing when grilled and I don't even bother peeling them. To add to the fruity theme I brushed everything with a coating of lime infused olive oil, that brought a little something extra to the party too. This was the first time I used a rub on shish-ka-bobs instead of a marinade and it worked well. Which bites were the best? The ones that had a little bit of everything:@)
The original recipe for this rub was created for long cooking ribs, I cut back on the salt for quick cooking kabobs. It also made over 1 1/2 C of rub, the recipe below is one fourth of the amount called for. This would be great with pork too.

Lemon Pepper Rub for Boneless Skinless Chicken-adapted from
2 1/2 Tblsp Lemon Pepper Seasoning
1 1/2 tsp salt-original recipe would use 1 Tblsp
2 Tblsp white sugar
1 1/2 Tblsp paprika
cayenne pepper, my addition, a few shakes if desired -I desired:@)

Lime Infused Olive Oil
2 Tblsp olive oil
zest of half a lime
juice of half a lime
a bit of freshly ground pepper
a pinch of kosher salt
  1. Mix lime olive oil and set aside.
  2. Generously sprinkle lemon pepper rub over chicken, completely coat the meat. Set aside while the grill heats up.
  3. Skewer meat, veggies and fruit of your choice.
  4. Brush everything with lime olive oil.
  5. Grill over medium heat until cooked through.
Eat well and have a happy day:@)

  1. I happen to have just found (in my unpacking the move still) a tin of lemon pepper that somehow was in with dish towels and napkins (??). This could put it too good use if we only had a grill. Soon!


  2. OF COURSE you had to add cayenne pepper...why does that not surprise me??? LOL

    Lynn, you've inspired me (as usual) to do something similar for tomorrow nights dinner. Baby sis, from Maui, is visiting & has never eaten grilled pineapple. ??? I think I'll combine some with peaches & peppers & onions along with some ham to make up kabobs for us to enjoy. I have Lemon Pepper seasoning & everything else except the lime...will have to use a lemon.
    Thanks for the ideas!!

  3. Love love the idea of lime infused olive oil Lynn, can't wait to try that!! Hope your 4th was as delicious as it looks!

  4. The kabobs look so tasty, Lynn, and I love the idea of lime infused olive oil. I have some pineapple chunks that would be nice with the chicken and some homegrown green peppers. Thanks for the inspiration, as always.

  5. My mouth is watering already. Your kabobs look delicious!

  6. Your kabobs look so tasty Lynn! I love the addition of peaches or nectarines and the lime infused olive oil :)
