Thai Chili Summer Skewers

30 Jun

Thanks to Pinterest, trying new recipes has become a new hobby to the mostly kitchen-adverse Lauer girls. There’s not much better than grilling in the summer (even in 108 degrees in Texas) and we’re big fans of Gina over at Skinnytaste so Jaclyn and I decided to whip up a version of her Bangin’ Grilled Shrimp Skewers.  I’m a bit of a seafood wimp so we decided we’d also throw some chicken into the mix.  And what are kabobs without some green peppers and onions?  Our adapted version of the recipe can be found below – we’ll take more pictures of the process next time!

Thai-Chili Summer Skewers


  • 8 tbsp Thai Sweet Chili Sauce (plus more for dipping)
  • 1 tsp Sriracha (or a little more if you like things extra spicy!)
  • 4 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp scallions, chopped fine
  • 20 raw shrimp, de-shelled
  • 3 large boneless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
  • 2 medium-sized green bell peppers, cut into chunks
  • 2 medium-sized sweet onions, cut into chunks
  • fresh cracked pepper
  • oil spray
  • skewers (if you’re using wooden, make sure to soak them for 20-30 minutes to avoid burning)


  1. Add Thai chili sauce, sriacha, mayo, and scallions into a bowl and mix.
  2. Place raw shrimp in a large plastic bag and add half of the above mixture – shake to coat.
  3. Repeat above step with boneless chicken chunks & peppers/onions.
  4. Add the marinated chicken, pepper, and onions to skewers – alternating between the three.
  5. Spray your grill (thoroughly) with cooking oil spray.
  6. Place chicken skewers on grill – these will probably take about 20 minutes to cook through.  Make sure to turn them once every 5 minutes to get a good grill on each side.
  7. Add marinated shrimp to skewers and place on the grill after the chicken skewers have been on for about 10 minutes.  These will take about 6 minutes on each side.
  8. Remove all skewers from grill – serve and enjoy!
