Reviews for Marinated Chicken & Zucchini Kabobs
"I really liked this recipe. it was super easy to make and had a nice tang to it. The veggies, even though, not added to the skew until 5 minutes until we cooked it picked up all the flavouring. I used Sprite Lemon-Lime Zero.I'm not sure why it's not a 5, it's just different.. would make again, but it's not a flavour you're expecting.. Maybe too much soy sauce?"
