After a seemingly never ending winter, summer is finally here and it’s officially grilling season!

Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite summer-time recipe from my best-selling keto guide and cookbook, Simply Keto.

  • lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts cubed (24 cubes total)
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 12 small white mushrooms halved (optional)


  • Make the marinade: In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the ranch dressing, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder.
  • Add the chicken to the bowl with the marinade and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.
  • Thread the end of a slice of bacon onto a skewer. Add one piece of chicken and one mushroom half (if using) to the skewer, then loop the bacon around and thread it onto the skewer again. Add another piece of chicken and another mushroom, then thread the bacon onto the skewer again, creating an “S” pattern covering each level of chicken and mushroom with bacon. Repeat until each skewer has 4 pieces of chicken and 4mushroom halves.
  • Grill the skewers for 15 to 20 minutes, until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165°F and the juices run clear, and the bacon is cooked.

    This is one of my favorite recipes from your cookbook. My entire family loves it and requests it often. I found your site as a result of purchasing your book. Love both. Thanks for all you do.

    These sound delicious. Question for your Keto calculator is that carbs or net carbs that are being suggested after you enter information in? Struggling with staying in nutritional ketosis and not weightloss levels. Thanks

    I made these tonight and they were delicious. I didn’t do on the grill, but baked them in the oven and then broiled them, turning twice. I used Marie’s Blue Cheese Dressing as a dipping sauce. For a side dish, I browned 2 slices of bacon and added Brussel sprouts cooked till tender.

    Suzanne, I’ve been doing keto for 4 weeks. I’ve lost 16 lbs. I’m 51 years old and in menopause and I’ve tried everything..this is working for me, which I can’t believe, honestly! I made your kabobs last night and they were delicious. You are very inspiring!

    I like the recipe and cookout season is almost all year here in Puerto Vallarta, Mx. as long as you can stand the temperature. I would guess that you are talking about a keto Ranch dressing in the recipe. I make my own but I understand there is a good one at Thrive market although I admit I have not looked. I will be cooking this when my friends drop by in a few days. Served with a nice salad, it should leave me lots of time to visit. Thanks for sharing.

    Made this last week and my teenagers loved it! It’s so nice to have keto recipes that everyone in the fam will enjoy! My oldest is very hard to please and he gobbled these bad boys up. Thankfully I tripled the recipe!!

    I made this last night and let me tell you it was so good. I will be making this many more times. We can grill here in South Florida year round and this is on my rotation recipes as of now.

    I bought your book yesterday and I’ve been reading it ever since!! Very well written and tons and tons of information. I like the fact that the 30 day meal plan is made from every day foods and easy instructions to prepare each meal. I’ve purchased other books but found them complicated and the recipes called for ingredients that I normally do not eat.

    This is a favorite of ours, but we add more veggies to the kabob.
