Skewers of Rosemary Chicken and Zucchini

Skewers of Rosemary Chicken and Zucchini - Perfect weeknight summer grilling recipe!

I love this recipe! It has to be one of my favorite summer meals. It is quick, light but filling, healthy, and has fantastic flavor! The combination of the fresh rosemary and lemon zest is perfect. And who doesn’t like grilled zucchini?! This is quick and easy enough to throw together during the week, but tastes special enough to be served to guests, which I have definitely done before! It’s a win-win!

    Big kebab fan right here! Chicken and zucchini is a complete dinner on a stick! FYI – I usually slice my zucchini thicker and skewer it so that the cut portion lays flat on the grill… More surface area = more char and flavor! YUM
