Marinated Chicken & Zucchini Kabobs Recipe

Marinated Chicken & Zucchini Kabobs Recipe

These tasty (and healthy!) kabobs are a family favorite. You can change them up with turkey tenderloins and other veggies, like summery squash or sweet bell peppers. —Tammy Slade, Stansbury Park, Utah
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup lemon-lime soda
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup canola oil, divided
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts or turkey breast tenderloins, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 medium zucchini, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 medium red onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine soda, soy sauce and 1/4 cup oil. Add chicken; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
  • 2. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. On eight metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread chicken and vegetables. Brush vegetables with remaining oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 3. Moisten a paper towel with cooking oil; using long-handled tongs, rub on grill rack to coat lightly. Grill kabobs, covered, over medium heat 8-10 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, turning occasionally. Yield: 8 servings.
