    Serves eight

     

    Ingredients

     

    For the marinade:
    1 ½ Tbsp. canola oil
    ½ tsp. lemon zest
    1 ½  Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
    1 ½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
    1 ½ tsp. dried oregano leaves
    ½ tsp. dried dill
    1 medium garlic clove, minced
    ⅛ tsp. dried pepper flakes
    ¼ tsp. salt

     

    For the kabobs:
    Canola oil cooking spray
    4 chicken tenders (8 oz. total), rinsed and patted dry, cut crosswise into small chunks
    ½ small green bell pepper, cut into 16 cubes
    16 grape cherry tomatoes
    1 small yellow squash, quartered lengthwise and cut into 16 pieces
    16 bamboo skewers (6-in each)

     

    Directions

     

    1. Combine marinade ingredients in a quart-sized resealable plastic bag, seal tightly, and toss back and forth until well blended. Remove 2 tablespoons mixture, place in a small bowl, and set aside. Add chicken pieces to bag with the remaining marinade, seal tightly, and toss back and forth to coat completely. Refrigerate 1 hour, turning occasionally.
    2. Coat grill rack with cooking spray and preheat grill to medium-high heat.
    3. Remove chicken from marinade and discard marinade. Thread piece of chicken and each vegetable per skewer in this order: pepper, chicken, tomato, and squash. Repeat with remaining skewers.
    4. Place skewers on a grill rack and cook 5 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center and juices run clear, turning frequently and being careful not to overcook. Remove from grill, place on a serving platter, and brush reserved 2 tablespoons marinade evenly over all. Serve warm.
