Sometimes I get “stuck” on things. Apparently, I’m currently stuck on ranch seasoning while I’m grilling.

These chicken bacon kabobs are so delicious with just the right amount of ranch seasoning.
Plus, they are simple and when you add bacon to them you just can’t go wrong! They are the perfect easy grilling recipe for beginners or if you are looking for a quick weeknight meal!
Ingredients Needed for Ranch Chicken Kabobs!
- Boneless skinless chicken breasts
- Olive oil
- Ranch seasoning
Five ingredients! What’s not to love about that? I think I should do a feature on recipes with five ingredients or less. You always know it’s going to be easy when you have minimal ingredients. What I love about these ranch chicken kabobs is that they are still flavorful with minimal ingredients!
My cousin made that comment because she assists me in the kitchen on recipe days and the prior week I had just made Grilled Ranch Pork Chops. Therefore, she put two and two together and figured out I have a slight obsession with anything to do with ranch!
I also had made these Marinated Grilled Vegetable and Steak Kabobs so she knows I love some kabobs too! They are so easy and fast to make because the pieces of meat are smaller so they cook faster. I’m not a big one on long, complicated recipes especially during the week so kabobs fit the bill of easy!
Tips for Making Chicken Bacon Kabobs!
- If you are using wooden skewers make sure you soak them, if you have a tendency to forget to soak skewers buy some metal skewers!
- I used 6” wooden skewers, but you can use 10” skewers. You just won’t get as many.
- Not feeding as many people? Cut the recipe in half! Otherwise these are good warmed up too. I used my air fryer to warm up the leftovers and they were great! You could also pop them in the oven to get the crisp bacon when you warm them up.
- Don’t skip microwaving the bacon, this helps it cook a little so it’s done when the chicken is done!
- Love onions? Pop onion slices on between the bacon and chicken!

Place bacon on a microwave plate lined with paper towels so it's not laying on top of the other pieces. Microwave the bacon on a plate for about 1.5 minutes. You will have to do multiple batches. Cut bacon strips into 2 inch square pieces.
Thread a piece of chicken, then bacon repeating until the skewer is filled.
Place on grill preheated to 350 degrees. Grill 6-8 minutes on each side then flip. Remove when chicken has reached 160 degrees. Do not overcook chicken, this will result in dry, chewy chicken.
