Either one should work. A lot depends on how far from the broiler and how hot your broiler is. Definitely you should turn the kabobs so they brown evenly on all sides.

lets say i can get the broiler to 500-575. i can put the pan about 1-2 inches away from the heat source. im thinking like 2-3 minutes and turning it 4 times?

Personally, that sounds too hot and too close....too close for SURE though. I'd put them down at least 6 inches or so if you are going to have the broiler on that high. Any closer and I don't think the chicken will have enough time to fully cook in the center.
