Tips for Making Kebabs:

  • We love these 2 prong skewers for grilling. They really stabilize the meat and veggies for even grilling and I love the handles. So easy to turn over on the grill and great for serving. 
  • Prep your veggies and chicken ahead of time and add to the skewers just before grilling. 
  • Make your marinade a day in advance.

Grilled Chicken and Vegetable Skewers

Adding the vegetables to these chicken skewers adds a lot of flavor and even the kids loved these vegetables. Our family is very happy on a meat and potatoes kind of diet but grilled vegetables has quickly become a new favorite.

Along with the great flavor, the grilled vegetables also have a great texture. This was the first time we had tried grilling zucchini and I was afraid it would be mushy but it was not. It was so delicious that we planted zucchini in our garden this year.
