Cooking Instructions:

Wash, core, and cut peppers into large slices. Peel and slice large chunks of onion. Wash zucchini and slice into long thin slices for grilling. Cut lemon into quarter slices and finely chop fresh parsley.

Soak skewers in water (wooden skewers only) to avoid burning when grilling. Cut chicken into 2 inch cubes and toss in a mixing bowl with balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper. Once tossed well, prepare chicken on skewers with about 4-6 pieces on each.

Preheat grill to medium-high. Grill vegetables evenly on all sides. Set vegetables aside and cover with foil to keep warm.

Grill chicken skewers evenly on each side turning every 3-4 minutes.

Grill flatbread for one minute on each side.

Place flatbread on plate, smear about 1.5-2 oz of humus on flatbread and top with vegetables and a chicken kabob. Garnish lemon juice and parsley. Add salt and pepper if desired. ENJOY!
