    Heat 1 side of gas grill on medium or charcoal grill until coals are ash white. Place coals in charcoal grill to 1 side. Make aluminum foil drip pan; place opposite heat.

  4. STEP 4

    Assemble kabobs by alternately threading chicken, mushrooms, tomatoes, bell pepper and squash onto skewers. Brush kabobs with marinade. Place kabobs on grill over drip pan. Grill, turning and basting occasionally, 15-20 minutes or until chicken is fork tender.

Looks good. Try a mixture of the juice from a can of Mandarin orange segments and cranberry sauce as a marinade. Then arrange the chicken pieces, Mandarin orange segments, pineapple and maraschino cherries onto the skewer. Myself, I like the cheaper brands when it comes to the mandarins orange segment as they are generally firmer and tend to stay on the skewers better. Place on the grill and baste with marinade mixture.
