Technique

Prepare the rosemary skewers by removing all of the rosemary from the stems. You will need 15 skewers, which is about two packages of rosemary from the grocery store or feel free to use your own garden sprigs.

For chicken, add all ingredients to a gallon sized Ziploc bag and massage bag so that chicken is evenly coated. Refrigerate for about an hour or longer, massaging a couple of times.

For vegetables, add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix until vegetables are evenly coated. The vegetable do not need to marinate. Skewer chicken and vegetables, alternating as desired. Grill on medium high grill for about 8 – 10 minutes turning often. Do not be alarmed if some of the tips of your branches catch fire. The flames will die down quickly.
