Low-Carb Spicy Turmeric Chicken Kebabs

Chicken Kebabs are a fun keto recipe to make on your grill over the summer months. This chicken recipe uses spices from the East like turmeric and red pepper flakes to add flavor. These spicy chicken kebabs are grilled over indirect heat for a longer period of time to help retain the moisture and juiciness of the chicken thighs.

The Spices For Chicken Kebabs

spices needed for chicken kebabs
The seasoning used to marinade the thighs in this keto chicken recipe will most likely be found in your spice rack already. To flavor the chicken kebabs we use garlic and onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes, turmeric and salt & pepper.

These chicken thighs have just the right level of spice. Not too hot but just enough to let you know these aren’t your traditional grilled chicken kebabs.

The Chicken

I prefer to use chicken thighs in this keto recipe instead of chicken breast meat. Chicken thighs are considered a dark meat within the poultry category. Dark meat has a higher fat content and tends to be more flavorful than the white cuts, ie breast meat.

Because of the high fat content and flavor, chicken thighs are an excellent source of protein for those following a ketogenic diet.

The Skewers

If using bamboo skewers, make sure you soak your wooden skewers in water for a few hours before you thread the marinated chicken thighs. This will keep the wooden sticks from catching on fire when you grill them.

If you have access to metal skewers, you can use them in this recipe. These don’t require any presoaking.
