    Shuzbud's Note:

    This is an elegant way to serve meat and vegetables from the grill. You can adjust the spice to suit your preference- most will probably like this spicier than I do!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 2

    Yield:

    skewers

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Thinly slice the chicken lengthwise so you end up with thin strips, about an inch wide and 5 inches long, depending on the size of the chicken breasts.
    2. 2
      If the slices are more than a quarter-inch thick, lay out a piece of clingfilm (saran wrap), lay the slices of chicken on top and cover with another piece of clingfilm. Bash with a rolling pin until each slice is a quarter-inch thick.
    3. 3
      Place the chicken in a bowl with the spices, stir and cover. Leave in the fridge for 30 minutes to marinate.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, prepare and preheat the grill.
    5. 5
      Using a vegetable peeler, slice the zucchini into thin strips the length of the zucchini.
    6. 6
      Thread alternate strips of chicken and zucchini onto the skewers in an "S" shape.
    7. 7
      Drizzle with olive oil and grill for about 15 minutes, turning regularly, until the chicken is cooked through.

      Very good and easy and spiced just right! I couldn't cut the zucchini as thin as suggested, so I used zucchini chunks instead of ribbons on the skewers. I also doubled the recipe and used one package of chicken tenders (about 1 pound). Very good and easy dinner which we enjoyed with a tossed salad. Thanks for sharing!

      This was great. I made as stated except I also added some blanched broccoli to my skewers and served over chicken flavored rice. So yummy. Thanks for posting.
