Place Chicken in large resealable food storage bag. Combine oil, juice, garlic, chopped oregano, salt and black pepper in glass measuring cup; pour over chicken in bag. Close bag securely; turn to coat. Marinate in refrigerator 4 hours, turning once or overnight.

Drain Chicken, reserving marinade. Alternately thread chicken, and whatever vegetables you like
IE bell pepper, zucchini, yellow squash, onion and mushrooms onto 12 (10-inch) metal skewers;  brush both sides with reserved marinade.

Using wooden skewers, soak in cold water 30 minutes to prevent burning.
Place kabobs on grid. Grill, on covered grill, over medium-hot coals 6 minutes. Turn; continue to grill, covered, 5 to 7 minutes for medium or until desired doneness is reached. Serve with rice (see below). Garnish with lemon, if desired. Serve hot.

This looks and sounds awesome. I want some. Is it just me or are more people using Marsala lately, seems like I've seen a few recipes in the last couple of weeks.

Claudia said...

Mmmmm - loving this. The grill is out. It's minus 12 F. We won't discuss wind chill - but the recipe stands out - light and fresh and I have all the ingredients...

I love kebabs. This is a healthy meal with all those vegetables. Right now, the wind would blow them away but I would love to make this, when it is a lot better weather.

Hey Claudia, One of your many fabulous recipes for us who grill year round. Lemon and Chicken are definitely the perfect pair!

What a winning combination! I'm also tempted to add some sauteed chicken to that wonderful rice. It's bookmarked for a not-too-distant dinner. Great ideas here.

Staring at the grill on the patio. So tempting as we are above freezing. Love chicken with lemon - it is just so bright and cheery and loving the additions of vegetables.
