Squash Ribbon Chicken Skewers

One of my favorite things to grill is chicken skewers with a side of zucchini-heavy veggie skewers, but because of the different cooking times, they have always been separate endeavors. But no more. These Squash Ribbon Chicken Skewers let you thread everything onto the very same skewer in a way where everything comes out cooked to perfection. And they do it with delectable herby, lemony Greek-inspired flavor. These are a go-to grilling recipe for sure!

The magic here is in how you’re cutting your ingredients. You want your chicken to be bite-sized (about one-inch chunks) and you want your squash in ribbons that are thin enough to bend, but not so thin that they fall apart. A vegetable peeler or the slicing side of your box grater work well. Your chicken will hang out in a marinade of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, oregano, and dill for about half an hour, while your squash only needs a drizzle of olive oil before you assemble the skewers. Thirty minutes is perfect for the chicken to marinate, but because of the lemon juice don’t let it sit longer than two hours or it will start to affect the texture of the meat. (No one wants mushy chicken!)
