2 yellow peppers, cut into 1x1 inch pieces
1 8 oz package cherry tomatoes
1 zucchini, sliced into rounds
1 onion cut, into 1x1 inch pieces
BBQ Sauce (use your favorite, or see the recipe below)
Metal or bamboo skewers
Get 4 skewers ready - If you are using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for about 10 minutes, so they don't catch fire on the grill.
Skewer all of your ingredients, rotating ingredients flavors. Brush with the BBQ sauce and place on a hot grill. If you are using veggie chicken, it's pre-cooked, so you only need watch the vegetables for doneness.
If you're using organic chicken breasts, it's a good idea to skewer them separately, so the tomatoes don't overcook while you wait for the chicken to be cooked through.
