Zero to Hero Chicken Kabobs

It has been a long time, but here we are again! We are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Disney’s Hercules with an inspired Disney Day.

As I posted a sneak-peak reel on Instagram, I thought we’d start with this amazing recipe. It’s also positively perfect for the summer. So let’s get to it.

Zero to Hero Chicken Kabobs


  • 1-2 lb of chicken breasts, cut into pieces
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice (I use fresh if I have it on hand)
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2.5 tsp dried oregano
  • 1.5 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp fresh thyme (or ground)
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 large bell peppers (we used green and yellow, but we have used red and orange before, too), cut into pieces for kabobs
  • 1 large red onion, cut into pieces for kabobs
  • 3 zucchini, cut into pieces for kabobs


  • In a bowl, mix together your olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, garlic, oregano, basil, thyme, coriander, and season with salt/pepper to taste. Whisk it all together to create your marinade. Place chicken into marinade in a sealed ziplock bag or sealed bowl. Let sit for 45 minutes to two hours. If you’re using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for 30 minutes.
  • Toss veggies in extra olive oil to prep them for grilling. Once your chicken has marinaded, put everything on your skewers. Use a basting brush to brush the veggies with leftover marinade from your bowl or bag.
  • Preheat your grill over medium-high heat. Once it’s ready, brush grill with olive oil and place skewers on grill. Grill until chicken registers 165 with meat thermometer. This will be about 10-12 minutes. Rotate your kabobs halfway through cooking.

Easy and delicious! Serve these with some yummy tzatziki sauce and homemade pita!

Stay tuned for more fun from our Hercules day!
