Use chicken or turkey for these Sanpete County Grilled Turkey Kabobs flavored with soy sauce, sesame oil, horseradish, garlic, and diet lemon-lime soda!
I’m so happy to be updating this recipe for Sanpete County Grilled Turkey Kabobs! This marinade for grilled turkey (or chicken) is famous all over Utah, and when I recently made it to update the photos, I discovered the recipe had been missing a key ingredient. UGH. I hate making a mistake like that! And my site has gone through so many changes since the original version was first posted that I don’t know how long it had been wrong. I haven’t gotten any complaints, but my apologies for the error, whenever it happened.
So today I’m bringing you this new-and-improved version of the famous grilled turkey recipe that I’ve researched and tested thoroughly! I consulted my sister Val who’s from Sanpete County (the turkey capital of Utah), and she’s been making this recipe for years. Val reminded me that she always uses the tasty marinade on turkey breast, and after I updated my recipe and tested it on turkey it was so good that I decided that’s the version I’d share with you! Of course you can also make this with chicken breasts like I did for the original version if you prefer.
What makes this turkey or chicken marinade unusual is the addition of horseradish and sugar-free lemon-lime soda, which combines with the other ingredients to give great flavor and a slightly-spicy kick. When I was researching I found that some cooks don’t add much horseradish, but my recipe has a generous amount. I also use a little sesame oil for plenty of Asian flavor notes.
Kara and I tested this a couple of times to make sure the new version will be a WOW for you, and we loved these kabobs! I hope you’ll try it on boneless turkey breast if you want to switch up your grilling options! Or make it with chicken breasts if that’s what you have on hand.
