  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-1/2-in. pieces
  • 3 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into 1-1/2-inch slices
  • 3 medium onions, cut into wedges
  • 12 cherry tomatoes


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first nine ingredients; set aside 1/4 cup for basting. Pour half into a large bowl. Add chicken; turn to coat. Pour the remaining marinade into another large bowl. Add the zucchini, onions and tomatoes; turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate chicken and vegetables for up to 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Alternately thread chicken and vegetables onto metal or soaked wooden skewers. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 6 minutes on each side or until chicken juices run clear, basting occasionally with reserved marinade.
