  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup dark maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons stone ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Chicken Kebabs

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 red bell pepper cut up
  • 1 yellow or orange bell pepper cut up
  • 1/4 red onion cut into large chunks
  • 2 large heirloom tomatoes quartered
  • wooden skewers soaked in water for a minimum of 2 hours


  • Mix the marinate ingredients with a whisk or a spoon in a medium bowl. Set aside.
  • Slide one piece of pepper for each color onto the wooden skewer. Followed by a piece of chicken, then a few red onion slices, followed by a piece of tomato. Then repeat until the skewer is filled up. Place into a large pan or disposable aluminum pan. Spoon over the marinate. Refrigerate for 1 hour or up to 24 hours.
  • Grill on high, turning occasionally, until the chicken is fully cooked, about 5 minutes each side. Spoon any extra marinate over the kebobs while they are on the grill. Remove from the grill, let rest for 3-4 minutes and serve.
