Ingredients

  • Marinade:

    • 1 1/2 tablespoon canola oil 

    • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest 

    • 1-2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 

    • 1 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 

    • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves

    • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill 

    • 1 medium clove garlic, minced

    • 1/8 teaspoon dried pepper flakes 

    • 1/4 teaspoon salt 

     
  • Kabobs:

    • Canola oil cooking spray

    • 4 chicken tenders (8 ounces total), rinsed and patted dry, each cut in fourths crosswise

    • 1/2 small green bell pepper, cut into 16 cubes

    • 16 grape cherry tomatoes 

    • 1 small yellow squash, quartered lengthwise and cut into 16 pieces

    • 16 bamboo skewers (6 inches each)

     
 

Directions

  • In a quart-sized resealable plastic bag, add the marinade ingredients, seal tightly, and shake lightly until mixed together. Place 2 tablespoons of the mixture in a small bowl and set aside. Add the chicken pieces to the bag, seal tightly, and shake lightly until each piece is completely coated. Refrigerate for 1 hour, turning occasionally.

  • Coat the grill rack with cooking spray and preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

  • Remove the chicken from the bag and discard the marinade. To each skewer, add a piece of chicken and each vegetable in the following order: pepper, chicken, tomato, squash. Put the skewers on the grill rack and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, turning frequently. Do not overcook. Place all of the skewers on a serving platter, brush evenly with the 2 tablespoons of marinade, and serve warm.
