Total time: 30 minutes | Serves 4
  • Juice of 1 large lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon herbs de Provence
  • Coarse salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 to 3 zucchini
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 8 small mushrooms

Step 1Whisk together lemon juice, oil, mustard, herbs de Provence and salt and pepper to taste in small bowl. Slice each chicken breast into 1-inch cubes. Toss chicken in marinade.

Step 2Cut zucchini into 1-inch-thick rounds. Quarter onion and separate pieces.

Step 3Divide chicken and vegetables among 8 skewers, alternating chicken, zucchini and mushrooms. Use 2 mushrooms per skewer, threading from stem through to top to prevent mushroom from breaking in half.

Step 4Grill chicken-vegetable skewers over medium-high heat, basting with remaining marinade, turning often until chicken is cooked and vegetables are tender and beginning to char, about 10 minutes.
