This recipe for grilled Triple Herb Chicken & Zucchini Skewers is perfect for dinner on the patio! Made with a mixture of fresh herbs, lemon, and olive oil, these easy chicken skewers are perfect for any occasion.


  • ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Minced zest of 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup minced fresh basil
  • ¼ cup minced fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup minced scallions
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh oregano
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • 2 zucchini squash, peeled into ribbons

Combine oil, zest, basil, parsley, scallions, oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; reserve ¼ cup marinade.

Add chicken to remaining marinade and stir to coat; cover and refrigerate 30 minutes. Meanwhile, alternate threading zucchini and onion onto wood skewers. Brush with reserved ¼ cup marinade.

Heat a grill pan or grill over medium; coat with nonstick spray.

Serving suggestions:

  • This recipe (and menu) is designed to serve 4–6 people. The reason for giving a range depends on if you choose to serve additional dishes than the menu given.
  • If serving the Casual Summer Dinner Party menu as is, I would plan for it to serve 4 people. However, if you have more then 4 people, each one of these recipes easily doubles, triples, etc.
