Chicken Kabob Instructions
, watch here
1. If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes. 

2. Make a marinade by mixing avocado oil, lemon juice, vinegar, garlic, oregano, basil, thyme, coriander, salt and pepper in a bowl, whisk very well.

3. Place chicken in a gallon size resealable bag, pour the marinade over chicken and marinate for at least 45 minutes to 2 hours. Drain the chicken from the marinade.

4. Drizzle and toss veggies with 2 Tbsp of olive oil and season with remaining 1 teaspoon oregano, 1 teaspoon basil, and salt to taste.

5. Preheat a grill over medium to high heat.  Thread 1 bell pepper piece, 1-2 onion pieces, 1 zucchini piece, and two chicken pieces onto a skewer. Repeat to fill skewer, finishing with 1 piece of bell pepper and sprinkle with smoked paprika. If using metal skewers, remember your chicken will cook faster because the metal will conduct cooking inside.

Grill method 
Lightly brush grill with avocado oil.  Place skewers on the grill.  Rotate after five minutes.  Cook until chicken reaches 165 degrees in the center, about 8 -12 minutes.

Conventional Oven method 
Preheat oven 425 F. Bake chicken kabobs in a single layer on a baking sheet with aluminum foil for 12-15 minutes. 

6. Garnish with parsley; serve with Tzatziki Sauce *recipe below
