Note: I used a premade sauce I found at Target called "Mango Curry Grilling Sauce" by Archer Farms. It was one of the very few bottled sauces I could find without high fructose corn syrup. Next time I may try to make a sauce from scratch. If anyone has a recipe for a good sweet/fruity grilling sauce, please let me know.
Veggies of your choice (we used bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, zucchini, yellow squash)
Grilling Sauce (see note above)
Skewers (we have metal ones, you could also use wood ones. If using wood, be sure to soak them in water for about 30 mins. before. This will save them from burning.)
The instructions are very easy.
Cut up all your veggies and chicken into chunks and then skew them onto the skewers, alternating chicken and veggies. I usually put about 5 pieces of chicken and veggies in between.
Brush grilling sauce all over them, making sure to get them completely covered. Place in container and cover with foil and let marinade all day. You could skip this part but the favors of the grilling sauce really come out when they marinade all day.
Grill over medium heat on an outdoor grill, turning until all sides are cooked. Brush extra marinade on them as you grill them.
We ate them with brown rice and a tomato salad (see recipe below).
2 lbs. fresh tomatoes
2 lg. clove garlic, pressed through garlic press
1/2 purple onion, peeled and sliced very thin
Handful fresh basil leaves, shredded
3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. white balsamic vinegar
1. Wash and cut tomatoes into one-inch chunks.
2. Add garlic, onion and basil.
3. In a small dish with lid, add oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.
4. Shake well.
5. Pour over tomatoes and toss gently.
6. Serve and top with crumbled feta cheese
This was such a good dinner and so fresh tasting! Even the kids loved it, including my picky daughter.
For dessert, we had Apple Butterscotch Cake. OH MY YUMMY!!
