Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs Recipe
This rosemary ranch chicken recipe is so delicious, tender, and juicy the chicken will melt in your mouth.
DELICIOUS & MOIST, even tho' I reduced the oil to 2-3 Tblsp.!! I did marinate it for 18+ hours to ensure the meat was infused with the fresh rosemary & other flavors. Excellent! I've made this several times in several ways in the past 2 months: I've used bottled Hidden Valley, dry ranch mix, & AR's "No-Guilt Zesty Ranch Dip" (a lowfat dip from this site) - ALL were terrific. With the latter, I combined: 1/3 c. of the NG Zesty Ranch + 1/3 c. buttermilk + double the rosemary + increased all other ingredients by 50% (incl'g chicken; only 2-3 Tbl oil!) = excellent, & comparable to orig. recipe. For the pkt of dry "Simply Organic Peppercorn Ranch", I mixed: 1 Tblsp. dry mix + 1/16 tsp. dry onion powder + 4 Tbl. buttermilk + 1-1/2 Tblsp. each of mayo & sour cream = ranch dressing; then added all the other ingredients. I highly recommend any of these methods for a truly delicious grilled chicken kabob! ** UPDATE: Last time, I skewered the chicken on stalks of the rosemary plant. I left the leaves on top, while del
This was AMAZING!!! This was literally the best grilled chicken I've ever had in my life. It was juicy, tender, and honestly I thought the ranch was going to ruin it but it actually completed the whole dish. With the slight taste of ranch and the Rosemary it really did top off the dish. I didn't make the chicken into kabobs only because I didn't have skewers but it didn't make a difference. I did not alter the recipe in any way because the measurements were perfect. It was pretty simple except for mincing all the fresh rosemary by hand, haha. I would recommend this dish to everyone!!! This is my go to chicken dish every time!!
Very tender chicken! I would use this marinade for chicken breasts as well. We reserved a little of the marinade and added more ranch dressing for a nice dipping sauce on the side. UPDATE: I've made these so many times now because they're just that good. You can cut down on the oil and substitute dried rosemary for the fresh if you don't have any on hand. I always use the sugar and 1 tsp. of salt vs. two. If you're looking to cut down on calories Hidden Valley Ranch Light Buttermilk Dressing works great with this recipe. I usually marinate this at least 6 hours. No matter what you do - it's bound to come out moist and delicious.
This was very good and very easy to make, we used 1/2 ranch & 1/2 bacon ranch dressing, plus we used brown sugar instead of white, and garlic vinegar instead of white! it was very good and the aroma of rosemary was heavenly .... Don't forget to marinated the veggies you plan to put on you kabob's too, the onions were to die for!!! and the chicken salad sandwich I'm eating right now, was made with the left over from last night! ... this sandwich rocks© yabba dabba doo... enjoy, Fred
I used a packet of ranch dressing mix instead of ranch dressing and splenda instead of sugar. I liked the splenda but the ranch was to much. Next time I will use half the packet of ranch dressing mix and will try marinating for 1/2 an hour. It was really delicious though and a favorite of my soon to be husbands. We ate it with steamed broccoli mixed with roasted red peppers.
This was super good. I get really tired of chicken and often think kabobs are just extra steps for the same old thing but these were really good. I used good quality chicken breasts and a refrigerator brand ranch dressing which probably helped in the outcome but otherwise I followed the recipe as written and they turned our really moist and tender. I will add these to the regular rotation of good menu items. Would be a definite contender for summertime entertaining.
