I did it. I made a meal with all local ingredients (with the exception of the soy sauce, oil & pepper in the marinade). This is one of my favorite things to make on the grill – Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs. They really are yummy. The marinade works well with every vegetable I’ve ever pierced through with a skewer, and it flavors the chicken perfectly.
All of the ingredients for this came from the Collingswood Farmers Market.
- Chicken – Hillsacres Pride – I bought a whole breast and deboned it. I used half for the kabobs and I’ve got the other half still in the freezer.
- Veggies – mushrooms, zucchini, yellow squash and onions all came from various farmers at the market – I usually try to buy a little produce from each vendor.
- Honey – Mind Your Own Beeswax Wild Flower Honey out of Jacobstown. This is the best honey I’ve ever had.
These kabobs are great because you can use whatever vegetables are in season and change them as the summer goes on. In a few weeks, I’ll be adding peppers to the mix. It’s also the perfect meal if you’re trying to reduce the amount of meat you’re eating. You can load the skewer up with veggies and three or four pieces of meat, and you don’t feel deprived at all. I suppose you could even use the marinade just vegetables and have Yummy Honey Veggie Kabobs.
