For the Chicken:

  • 1/3 cup gluten-free soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 cloves minced garlic

  • 2-3 chicken breasts cut into 1-inch chunks

For the Vegetables:

  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 yellow squash
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt I used herbamare seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • Combine all the ingredients for marinade and whisk to combine. Add the chicken and marinade in for 2-8 hours. If you are using wooden skewers, be sure to soak them in warm water for at least 30 minutes before grilling.
  • For the vegetables, cut them all into 1-inch pieces and place in a bowl. Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Then thread onto skewers
  • Preheat an oven broiler or gas/charcoal grill. Thread the chicken onto the skewers Broil or grill the chicken and vegetable skewers for 5-8 minutes until cooked through, using nonstick cooking spray on a foil-lined pan if you are broiling. Serve immediately and enjoy!
