Have you ever had a grilled strawberry? Because if you haven't, you should definitely try it. They are so good in the summer and perfect for all your backyard cookouts. This recipe is the perfect combo of sweet and savory and it was really easy to throw together! You can mix it up by adding your favorite summer veggies. For a little added texture, try adding sesame seeds to your chicken before grilling.

Zest of 1 lemon

Instructions: 

  • Pre-heat a grill on high
  • Toss the diced chicken with 2 T olive oil, lemon zest, ½ tsp salt, and pepper
  • Toss the sliced summer squash with 1 T olive oil and ½ tsp salt
  • Build your skewers by alternating the strawberries, chicken, and squash so that each skewer has the same amount of all
  • Grill the skewers both sides of the skewers for 4 minutes each then close the lid and let the grill finish cooking the chicken.  Remove skewers when chicken is cooked throughout (approx 4 more minutes) **if your grill is hotter/colder, adjust the times so that the chicken isn’t undercooked or burnt
  • While the skewers are resting, mix together the honey and balsamic vinegar.  Drizzle the mixture over top of the skewers and enjoy!
