Presto Chicken Thighs and Zucchini Skewers
Last night we had a date with Kung Fu Panda. My daughter’s class got together to see a movie so between that and swim practice we had very little time for dinner. No sweat! Seasoned Skewers
to the rescue! I bought some flavored skewers and they really did a nice job in delivering a quick easy dinner. These were garlic and herb but there are many different flavors out there.
I decided to make grilled chicken thighs and grilled zucchini. I threaded 3 thighs per skewer and cut up the zucchini to also put on the skewers. I sprinkled the food with some garlic salt, pepper and fresh chopped parsley. After sitting on the skewers for 15 minutes, everything was ready to be grilled.
It worked great. The chicken was really flavorful and juicy. It tasted like it had been lightly marinated. I will definitely get some more skewers in other flavors. I am looking forward to making some kabobs on them.
Garlic and Herb Grilled Chicken Thighs and Zucchini
6 garlic herb seasoned skewers
6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
2 medium size zucchini
1 to 2 TBS olive oil
fresh ground black pepper
fresh chopped parsley
Roll and thread 3 chicken thighs per skewer. Cut up the zucchini into 1 inch slices. Thread it on the remaining skewers. Drizzle the zucchini with the olive oil. Sprinkle the chicken and zucchini with the garlic salt and black pepper. Top the chicken thighs with the parsley. Let sit for 15 minutes. Cook chicken on a preheated grill, medium heat until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 180 degrees (about 20 minutes). Turn once in the middle of cooking. Grill zucchini until somewhat wilted and lightly brown.
