It’s grilling season and what better way to celebrate than firing up a delicious meal of Mediterranean inspired chicken kabobs.

After a long day full of dad sandals, sunshine and kicking back with friends, this dish can be easily prepared ahead of time or even at the last minute. The kabobs are flavor packed with marinated chicken and colorful veggies. Feeds 2 to 4.

Kabob Ingredients:

  • 1 pound chicken filet

  • 1 large zucchini

  • 2 bell peppers of different colors

  • 1 yellow onion

Marinade Ingredients:

  • ⅔ cup extra virgin olive oil

  • Fresh juice of 1 lemon

  • 6 cloves of garlic, chopped
