Greek kabobs

Ingredients

For the marinade:

1½ Tbsp canola oil

½ tsp lemon zest

2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice

1½ tsp Worcestershire sauce

1½ 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.
