Marinated Chicken & Zucchini Kabobs

These tasty (and healthy!) kabobs are a family favorite. You can change them up with turkey tenderloins and other veggies, like summery squash or sweet bell peppers. —Tammy Slade, Stansbury Park, Utah

    Loved this recipe! We're thinking about using teriyaki sauce next time instead of soy just to change it up. We did add mushrooms to the skewers as family loves mushrooms. Definitely a keeper!

    I really liked this recipe. it was super easy to make and had a nice tang to it. The veggies, even though, not added to the skew until 5 minutes until we cooked it picked up all the flavouring. I used Sprite Lemon-Lime Zero.I'm not sure why it's not a 5, it's just different.. would make again, but it's not a flavour you're expecting.. Maybe too much soy sauce?
