Recipe Summary



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Using six skewers, thread a chunk of chicken onto one skewer, followed by a cherry tomato, a zucchini round, a pepper wedge, and an onion chunk.

  • Repeat process two more times, so skewer holds three chicken chunks, three cherry tomatoes, three zucchini rounds, three pepper wedges, and three onion chunks.

  • Thread remaining five skewers in the same manner.

  • Lightly brush all skewers with 2 tablespoons vinaigrette; save the rest for topping salads. Oil grill grates and preheat grill to medium.

  • Place skewers on grill and cook, turning several times, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until chicken is just cooked through and vegetables are tender. Transfer skewers to a platter.

  • Place bread on grill and brown on both sides, about 1 minute total. Serve as grilled slices, or cut bread into cubes for croutons.

  • Arrange equal portions of arugula, basil, and chickpeas on four large plates. Top each salad with a bread slice (or sprinkle with croutons) and the contents of one and a half skewers, then drizzle with a portion of the reserved vinaigrette.
