Chicken and Potato Stir Fry On The Grill

I like to grill vegetables.  I'll either wrap veggies in aluminum foil or else just cut them in big hunks and throw them on the grill. Yum. Mr. Bar-B-Q sent me this Stainless Grill Basket and I couldn't wait to grill some veggies in it!  

This Grilling Basket was so cool. It has a removable handle so you won't get burned. My 15 year old actually volunteered to grill with the basket!  

I was worried about how it would clean afterwards but it was no problem.  I rinsed it off and stuck it in the dishwasher and it came out perfectly clean.  I can't wait to use it again!

This tasted amazing.  Loved the red wine vinegar marinating on the chicken.  You can use any of your favorite grill seasonings too.  I decided to drizzle a bit of Not Ketchup over this.  I used the Cherry Chipotle, and it added a great flavor to the grilled veggies.  

This was a wonderful meal and we all enjoyed it. 

Chicken and Potato Stir Fry on the Grill Recipe
Adapted from $5 Mom One Dish Dinners

2 chicken breasts, about 1 lb., cut into bite size pieces
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper 
4 - 6  red potatoes potatoes
1 green pepper, seeded and diced
1 red pepper, seeded and diced
1 onion, diced

  • Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and place in a mixing bowl with the olive oil, red wine vinegar and seasoning. You can use just about any seasoning you like.  Add some cayenne if you want some heat!  Let marinate at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Microwave the potatoes for a few minutes before slicing. (This will help them cook faster on the grill)
  • Toss the potatoes, diced peppers and diced onions with the chicken pieces.
  • Place the mixture into the grill basket and cook for about 20 minutes, or until chicken pieces have cooked through. Toss and turn the chicken and vegetables often while they are grilling.


  1. The grill pan makes grilling vegetables SO easy. Did it add any smoky flavor to the finished dish?

  2. That is a nifty lil doodad. I love grilling veggies but rarely ever do it because I always lose half of them to the grill. So I either skip the veggies or saute them in the house.

  3. I love easy peasy and this sounds like a winning dish.

  4. I love that the removable handle makes tossing the veggies (and meat) so much easier.
