Instructions
 

Chicken and veggie marinade

  • Cut the chicken, onion, bell peppers, and zucchini into bite sized chunks. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl (preferably one with a lid) combine the olive oil, lemon juice, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, worcestershire, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Whisk until combined well. Add in the chopped chicken, onion, bell peppers, and zucchini. Cover bowl with lid or saran wrap and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes up to 24 hours to marinate.

Sweet and Spicy Sauce

  • Put all of the ingredients into a small microwave safe bowl and whisk vigorously until everything is well combined and the corn starch is dissolved.
  • Place the bowl in the microwave and cook for 30 seconds. Remove from microwave and stir. Repeat this step two to three more times until the mixture thickens. Set aside.

Sweet and Spicy Chicken Kebabs

  • Preheat your grill, skillet or barbecue to medium heat (approx 300-400°F).
  • Add chunks of the marinated chicken and veggies to your skewers one piece at a time alternating between different ingredients.
  • Place prepared skewers on the preheated grill/ skillet and cook for 12 minutes or until chicken is cooked throughout (reaches internal temp of 165°F). Make sure to turn the skewers half way through cooking unless you're using a two sided grill.
  • Remove from heat and drizzle with the sweet and spicy sauce. Garnish with fresh parsley (optional)
