I threw this recipe together for a party, and it was a huge success. Everyone commented on the meat's tenderness. —Becky Wiesmore, Rochester, New York

"This is a keeper! The veggies are the best. I used an extra 1/2 teaspoon of rosemary and garlic salt and marinated it for an hour."

"The whole family loved this, including my veggie-avoiding son, who ate every bit of it. I wonder about making it in a basket instead of on skewers...."

"For the marinade I used the Herbed Italian Dressing and the chicken was excellent. I liked using the oil, garlic and rosemary marinade for the veggies which also turned out very flavorful. We eat lots of chicken and veggies so this recipe will be used repeatedly."

"Our whole family loved these Kabobs. It was easy using ingredients I had on hand. I doubled the recipe for eight adults and thought we'd have extra but not one kabob was left over."

"In response to redhead4101: I was checking the food items for sodium, they are 0 as far as I can tell. But the Italian salad dressing seems to be the culprit for the sodium content. The Italian salad dressing I have shows about 360mg per 2tbsp. chicken breast (3oz) is about 68 mg sodium. The garlic salt for McCormick brand is about 490mg per serving. I hope this helps."

"I am wondering why the sodium is so high on this recipe. If someone could let me know It would be greatly appreciated. I am wanting to make this for my husband but due to sodium levels I am not sure I will be able too. 1 teasp garlic salt should not make it that high. Also I know I can use a lite Italian dressing also. Thanks so much!"

"Excellent and very easy to make. I used

Mc Cormick Perfect Pinch Garlic and Herb
with the olive oil on the vegetables instead
of the garlic salt and dried rosemary.. The
chicken was very tender."

"Excellent! I also let the chicken and veggies marinate a little longer. I think the Italian dressing really adds flavor! I served it with brown rice for a wonderfully tasty and healthy dinner. (I may be a little slow, but I thought the prep time was longer than 20 min, more like 40 by the time I skewered everything.)"
