Grilled Chipotle Chicken Thighs & Veggie Kebabs - Easy Low Carb

This evening we made a quick and easy grilled meal. It was just too hot to cook inside and heat up the kitchen. I had a package of boneless and skinless chicken thighs that I spritzed with olive oil and seasoned with McCormick's Grill Mates Chipotle and Roasted Garlic Seasoning. I cut up some Vidalia onion, red and yellow bell pepper and a green Poblano pepper into chunks and threaded them on skewers and spritzed them with a bit of olive oil. I also threaded some mushrooms on a skewer for me. We grilled everything for about 15 minutes or so; it was quick and easy. I snapped a couple of photos below. I also snapped a photo of the delicious dinner my children treated me to for Mother's Day on Sunday at the Atlanta Fish Market. I had their pan seared wild halibut with butter and olive oil sauce and haricot verts that they served alongside mashed potatoes. It was a delicious meal. It reminded me that it's almost Copper River Salmon time as well which I'm looking forward to. Enjoy!

My delicious Mother's Day Pan Seared Halibut

Grilled Chipotle Chicken


2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
Olive oil spray
McCormick's Grill Mates Chipotle & Roasted Garlic Seasoning
Smoked paprika


Spray both sides of chicken thighs with olive oil spray. Season both sides of chicken with chipotle seasoning and smoked paprika. Grill over a hot grill (approximately 400 degrees F) for about 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until done.

*Note: These seasonings can usually be found at most local grocery stores and supermarkets.

This looks wonderful ... and so does the halibut! :-) Amazing that you're hot and we are *still* cool as cucumbers. It was supposed to get to 78 today, but didn't get anywhere close to that ... a little warmer with storms expected, but after today it's back down with the temps! I'm not complaining, though, the heat and humidity will be here soon enough!

What do you know ... we were dreaming about Copper River Red the other day, too. Won't be long now! Glad you're feeling better. Now we just have to get through allergy season!

Looks delicious. I haven't made any kebabs in a long time. Need to do this.

Hi CyberSis,

We actually only made it to 72 degrees today...go figure! We're supposed to have rain most of the week though. You are right about that...the heat and humidity will be here for good any day now! :-)

Hi Charlotte,

I love can put just about anything on skewers and somehow it just seems a little more special! Kind of like "fondue for the grill"... :-)
