  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 red bell pepper cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 small zucchini cut into 1 inch slices
  • 1 red onion cut into 1 inch pieces


  1. Place the olive oil, coconut aminos, honey, garlic and salt and pepper in a large bowl. Whisk to combine.
  2. Add the chicken, bell peppers, zucchini and red onion to the bowl. Toss to coat in the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 8 hours.
  3. Soak wooden skewers in cold water for at least 30 minutes. This will ensure that the skewers don’t burn on the grill.  Preheat the grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.
  4. Thread the chicken and vegetables onto the skewers.
  5. Cook for 5-7 minutes on each side or until chicken is cooked through.
