Ingredients

Marinade

  • 1/4 cup oil from sun dried tomato jar
  • 3 sun-dried tomatoes minced
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic minced or pressed
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Kebabs

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts* cubed into 1 and 1/2 inch chunks
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into chunks
  • 1 zucchini sliced into rounds
  • 1 red onion halved and quartered
  • Tzatziki for serving

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, whisk together marinade ingredients and pour over chicken and vegetables.
  • Toss to fully coat chicken and vegetables and store in fridge, covered, for 1-4 hours.*
  • Preheat grill for 10 minutes at medium high heat (400 degrees).
  • While the grill is preheating, thread the chicken/veggies onto 4 skewers.**
  • Lightly oil the grates of the grill and place the kebabs on the grill.
  • Grill (covered) for 4-6 minutes, flip, and grill for an additional 4-6 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink.
  • Serve with tzatziki!

Notes

*Some people don't like marinating their chicken/veggies together, so feel free to do so separately - just split the marinade in half.
*Don't marinate longer than 4 hours, because the acid really starts to break the chicken down.
**If using bamboo skewers, make sure to soak them for at least 30 minutes to prevent burning.
