How to Prepare

Make Skewers

Whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, and dried herbs. Add cut vegetables to a bowl and toss with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil mixture. Set aside.

Add cubed chicken to a glass bowl and cover with remaining olive oil mixture. Cover and place in refrigerator to marinate for 2 hours. [You could marinate in less time, the flavor just won’t be as intense].

Alternate vegetables and chicken while threading on skewers [if using wooden skewers you can soak in water to prevent burning will on grill].

Season with salt and pepper.

Grill, rotating until all sides are slightly browned, chicken is cooked, and vegetables have softened.

Serve with basil sauce.
