One of my favorite things about this time of year is grilling...and food on a stick! So when I came across this recipe, I knew I had to make it! It was hit with my family.
Here's what you'll need:
Butter, Green Onions, Ginger, Garlic, Lime, Soy Sauce, Red Wine Vinegar (all I had on hand was a Raspberry Vinegar, balsamic would be good too), chicken, sugar, onion, zucchini & skewers
First things first! If you're going to use wooden Skewers, you will want to soak them in water for at least an hour....the longer the better. I soaked mine for about 3 hours, and they still burnt.
In a saucepan over medium-low heat, you'll want to melt your butter
Add the green onions, garlic & ginger and cook for about 2 minutes.
Add the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and lime. Turn off the heat and let cool
Cube the chicken, zucchini and onion
Add chicken to a bag, and zucchini & onion to another, and add the marinade to each bag. Put in fridge and let sit for 1 to 3 hours.
When the chicken & veggies are done marinating pull out of the fridge. Don't freak, the butter will have hardened and will look kind of nasty! It's all good!! It is now time to skewer them
Get your grill nice and hot, and cook them over medium heat until cooked through.
While everything is cooking, stop and enjoy the view for a minute....just don't forget about your skewers :)
It's time to eat!! We had ours with Watermelon, because watermelon goes good with anything this time of year!
Ginger Lime Chicken Kabobs
2 Chicken Breasts
2 medium zucchini
1/2 an onion
1/2 stick unsalted butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp minced ginger
2 green onions, cut 1 1/2 inches long
1/2 lime, juiced & zest
3 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
If you're using wooden skewers, soak in water for at least an hour...the longer the better!
Add butter to a sauce pan and melt the butter, then add the garlic, ginger and green onions; cook for about 2 minutes. Add the lime, sugar, vinegar & soy sauce; remove from heat and let cool.
Cube your chicken, zucchini & onions. You'll want to separate the veggies and the chicken into two different bags, then pour the marinade into each bag. Let sit in the fridge and marinate for 1-3 hours.
It's time to skewer! Don't be alarmed, when you remove the chicken and veggies from the fridge, the butter will have hardened, it's ok!! Skewer away.
Get your grill hot, and cook over medium heat until chicken is cooked through. Enjoy!
