Whenever I decide to grill something, I always like to have as much of the meal grilled as possible. That means fewer dishes to do, and it also means that my husband will make the whole thing.

These vegetable skewers are just the thing. They go so well with a simply grilled chicken breast and some grilled spicy potatoes tops of the meal.

It’s important to marinate these vegetables, but I like to do that while I’m thawing the chicken breast and prepping the potatoes. While it’s possible to marinate these for up to 12 hours, I’m usually not organized enough to get that done.

And since the veggies are basted with the leftover marinade while they’re being grilled, they are still just as tasty even when they’re only marinated for 30 minutes.

  1. Hi

    You have put this down as vegan under the diet type field – but it’s not vegan as vegans don’t eat honey. I will try this recipe but will substitute honey with maple syrup instead :)
