  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-1/2-in. pieces
  • 3 medium zucchini, halved lengthwise and cut into 1-1/2-inch slices
  • 3 medium onions, cut into wedges
  • 12 cherry tomatoes


  • In a large bowl, combine the first 9 ingredients; set aside 1/4 cup for basting. Pour half into a large bowl. Add chicken; turn to coat. Pour the remaining marinade into another large bowl. Add the zucchini, onions and tomatoes; turn to coat. Cover; refrigerate chicken and vegetables for up to 4 hours or overnight.
