Honey Grilled Chicken with Vegetable Kebabs

I love to grill vegetables but rarely do I make kebabs. In fact, I think I've only made them once before. Firewire sent me some awesome flexible grilling skewers. These were awesome to use. If you're an avid griller and love kebabs, I totally recommend them. I know I'll be grilling more vegetables this way. 

I made chicken for the meat eaters in the family too.  The marinade worked great for both the veggies and the chicken. If you want to combine your chicken and veggies on the skewer, go right ahead.  This way worked for us.  

Having people over for the game?  Tailgating from the back of the pickup?  This is a fantastic meal to serve for everyone. 

Love the grill char on the veggies. My favorite!

Honey Grilled Chicken with Vegetable Kebabs Recipe

2 tbsp. oil
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 cloves garlic

2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts (I used tenders)

For the Kebabs:
Zucchini, peppers, onions, mushrooms, corn on the cob, whatever you want to put on them. 

In a large bowl, whisk together oil, honey, soy sauce, and pepper. Place the chicken and the vegetables in the bowl, cover and shake.  Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.  

Drain marinade from the chicken and vegetables.  Thread the vegetables alternately onto the skewers.  If you're putting the chicken on the kebabs, make sure they are in small bite sized pieces and thread those as well.  I like to grill my chicken separately from the kebabs. 

Place the skewers on the grill and cook for about 12 to 15 minutes, until vegetables and chicken are done.
