Another easy, toss in the baggie – Chicken Unkabobs featured on our very popular meal plan membership! If you want to skewer these on sticks, knock yourself out. I didn’t have time so I just tossed it all in a bag and roasted in the oven. Could have totally grilled this in a grill basket but it was raining so in the oven it went.
What are Chicken Unkabobs?
Chicken unkabobs are basically everything you love about chicken kabobs, but without the sticks. They are a complete sheet pan dinner that is ready in minutes.
What’s In Chicken Unkabobs?
There are two parts to this recipe – the meat and veggies and the marinade.
You can use any meat that you want. Chicken tastes the best with the sauce, but chopped-up pork chops will also taste delicious.
Then, the marinade, which is completely homemade. If you want, you can also choose to just buy a jar of marinade from the store and save yourself a step.
Veggies to Use
Feel free to use whatever veggies are in season. We used zucchini, since they are plentiful this time of year.
Other vegetables you can use include:
- Bell peppers
- Green Beans
Marinate the Chicken
The most important step in this meal is to marinate the chicken.
The longer it marinates, the better it tastes. I say a minimum of 24 hours.
Of course, if you forget to marinate it, that’s oke. You can still just pour the sauce on top. It just won’t taste as delicious as if you marinated it.
How to Make Chicken Unkabobs
After it marinates, you are ready to cook it. Spread it all out on a pan sprayed with non stick spray.
Just set a timer and walk away. That is why I LOVE these one pan meals you can roast in the oven.

Can you make it in the slow cooker?
Yes, this can be turned into a slow cooker meal very easily. If you are going to use a soft vegetable like zucchini, don’t put it in the slow cooker until about 30 minutes before dinner time. You don’t want mushy vegetables.
If you want to make this a slow cooker meal, replace the zucchini with potatoes and carrots.
Put all of the ingredients in the slow cooker. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-6 hours.
