  • 4 tbsp chopped Shallots
  • 3 tbsp Canola Vegetable Oil
  • 3 tsp Garlic
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 32 oz Chicken Breast Filet, skinless
  • 1 medium Zucchini
  • 1 medium Yellow Summer Squash
  • 1 medium (approx 2-3/4" long, 2-1/2" dia) Red Sweet Pepper
  • 1 each Leeks
  • 4 tbsp Basil


  1. Mix shallots, oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper in a large re-sealable plastic bag. 
  2. Cut chicken, zucchini, squash and leek into 1 1/2 - 2 inch pieces and place into the bag with the marinade. Gently shake bag to coat chicken and vegetables, and marinate in refrigerator for 1 to 3 hours, turning occasionally.
  3. Prepare a medium-low grill. Start by placing the chicken on the grill. After chicken has been on the grill for about 2 minutes, add the peppers to the grill. Then after the chicken has been on for about 4 minutes, add the zucchini, squash and leeks to the grill. Turn the chicken and vegetables once, about halfway through their cooking time.
  4. Cook until chicken is just done, with an internal temperature of 165°F, and vegetables are tender. Total cooking time will be about 12 minutes for the chicken, about 10 minutes for the peppers, and about 8 minutes for the zucchini, squash and leek. Sprinkle with basil before serving.
