Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1/2 cup lemon juice
    1/2 cup honey
    6 green onions sliced thinly
    3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped (wear gloves)
    3 teaspoons dreid thyme
    1/4 teaspoon allspice
    1/4 teaspoon nutmet
    1 teaspoon brown sugar

    6 boneless, skinless,chicken breasts, cut in pieces
    1 red onion scut in 1/2s and then pulled apart
    1 green zucchini sliced 1/4 inch thick
    1 yellow squash sliced 1/4 inch thick
    red grape tomatoes

Directions

Place the first nine ingredients in a blender, cover and process until smooth. Pour 1/2 cup into a smal bowl for basting. Cover and refrigerate. Pour remaining marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Add cut up chicken and veggies, seal bag and turn to coat, refrigerate up to 6 hours or overnight. Let bag come to room temperature before you grill. Drain and discard marinade. Skewer chicken and vegetables alternating. Coat grill rack with non stick spray. Grill kabobs, covered over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until juices run clear, basting frequently with reserved marinade. I like to serve this with a just a salad or brown rice. The calories are incorrect as I forgot to include this is 6 servings and not one which comes out to 189 calories, however, I've tried editing this recipe and it won't save it. :)

  • Very good flavor! I also added green and red bell pepper. I could do without the 6 hour or overnight preparation marinade part. Would be five stars if less time prep. - 3/25/09

    I realize the calorie content is incorrect. I have tried many times to edit and change but it will not save it. There is only 169 calories a serving. I entered 1 serving instead of 6-8. I am so sorry! :(
