Minty Chicken-Zucchini Kebobs

Ali Segersten Jul 21, 2010 7 comments

Since it is grilling season, I thought it would be fitting to offer an easy, crowd-pleasing recipe for these sultry summer evenings. Our garden is overflowing with fresh mint and zucchini right now and I'm imagining that these ingredients are readily available for you too right now. Of course most fresh garden veggies would do well here. Think cherry tomatoes, peppers, and chunks of red onions.

Although I don't use an exact recipe when making the marinade for these, you can use my recipe for Pepper-Mint Dressing and Marinade. I use all of the same ingredients, just without measuring. Cooking is much more fun this way. ;-)

Thanks for the recipe. It was delicious. We made it Sunday. We used a mix of veggies...zucchini, peppers, onion and mushrooms to go with the chicken. It was nice to grill outside and not have to heat up the kitchen. Sunday was pretty warm in Seattle.

Ali, What protein do you grill for Tom? We are big on marinated deep-fried tofu chunks for our kebabs, but I'd love some other ideas if you have them. BTW--we are eating TONS of your berry-coconut milk "ice cream." Yum! And so easy.

Ali, What protien do you grill for Tom? We are big on marinated deep-fried tofu chunks, but I'd like some other vegan ideas if you have them. Barb PS--we've been eating tons of berry-coconut "ice cream" ala your recipe!

Thank you - you just gave me my dinner recipe. The Pepper Mint dressing looks delicious and I do have mint growing in the thanks again!

Yum! Sounds like the perfect summer dinner.

Hi Ali - these look great! I have been grilling chicken and Zucchini like crazy (and tofu, bread, hotdogs, corn, etc!) since I got a little Weber grill last week. I love fire and the taste of fire + wood, and not using the stove for a meal. We miss you all. Maybe you should come for a weekend sometime and we can grill together... xo - April

Bob has been grilling veggies this summer and is always looking for good marinades. I have a feeling we'll be trying this one.
