  • 1.5 lbs (680g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes 

  • 1 cup (240ml) barbecue sauce (homemade or store-bought) 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 

  • 1 tablespoon honey 

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced 

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder 

  • Salt and pepper, to taste 

  • Wooden skewers, soaked in water for at least 30 minutes 




1. Preheat Your Andrew James Electric BBQ: 

Before we begin, preheat your electric BBQ according to the manufacturer's instructions. Aim for a medium-high heat setting to ensure that your chicken cooks evenly and develops a delicious char. 

2. Prepare the BBQ Chicken Marinade: 

In a mixing bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, olive oil, honey, minced garlic, smoked paprika, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Whisk until well combined, creating a flavorful marinade that will infuse the chicken with irresistible taste. 

3. Marinate the Chicken: 

Place the cubed chicken breast pieces in a large resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish. Pour the BBQ marinade over the chicken, ensuring that each piece is evenly coated. Seal the bag or cover the dish, then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. 

4. Skewer the Chicken: 

Once the chicken has marinated, remove it from the refrigerator. Thread the marinated chicken pieces onto the soaked wooden skewers, leaving a small space between each piece to ensure even cooking. This also makes for a stunning presentation! 

5. Grill the Chicken Skewers: 

Carefully place the chicken skewers onto the preheated Andrew James Electric BBQ grill. Grill the skewers for approximately 8-10 minutes per side, or until the chicken is cooked through and has developed a golden-brown char on the outside. Baste the skewers with any remaining marinade during the grilling process for an extra burst of flavor. 

6. Serve and Enjoy: 

Once the chicken skewers are cooked to perfection, carefully remove them from the grill and transfer them to a serving platter. Garnish with chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley or cilantro, for a pop of color and freshness. Serve hot and enjoy the juicy, tender BBQ chicken skewers with your favorite sides, such as grilled vegetables or a fresh salad. 

7. Cleanup Made Easy: 

After your BBQ feast, cleaning up is a breeze with the Andrew James Electric BBQ. Simply allow the grill to cool completely, then wipe down the cooking surface with a damp cloth or sponge. The removable drip tray makes cleanup even more convenient, ensuring that your BBQ experience is hassle-free from start to finish. 

Get ready to impress your friends and family with these irresistible BBQ Chicken Skewers made with the Andrew James Electric BBQ. With its convenient design and exceptional grilling performance, every outdoor gathering will be a culinary success. Happy grilling!
