Is your garden still pumping? Mine is. I have an excess of almost all veggies, with zucchini being at the very top of the list. My creative juices fizzled out after a couple new zucchini this year- so I turned to Pinterest.
Pinterest never ceases to amaze me. A quick search of “Zucchini” gave me about a billion different ideas. Here are some of my favorite.

- In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, fresh dill, and salt and pepper.
- Season the chicken with salt and pepper to taste. Next add HALF the lemon marinade to the bowl and mix to coat the chicken well. Set aside.
- Combine the zucchini, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes in a bowl. Add the remaining lemon marinade and coat to mix.
- Take one skewer, and put approximately 2 pieces of zucchini, 1 tomato, 1 mushroom and 2 pieces of chicken on the skewer. (These amount will vary, depending on how small or large you cut up your ingredients. I count on two pieces of chicken per skewer)
- Preheat the grill to approximately 350 degrees. Lay the skewers on the grill. Grill them for approximately 4 minutes on each side. Remove and let rest for 2 – 3 minutes.
- chicken breast, cut into approximately 16 small chunks
- zucchini, cut into half coins
- mushrooms, cleaned and cut in half
- cherry tomatoes
- lemon, zested and juiced
- Tablespoons olive oil
- teaspoons garlic, minced
- Tablespoons dill, fresh
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon pepper
- NOTE: If using wooden skewers, begin by soaking them in a sink of water 30 minutes before cooking.
