Ingredients

For the Marinade

  • ¼ cup chopped parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic minced

  • 1 teaspoon salt

To Build the Skewers

  • ½ lb chicken (boneless, skinless thighs work best) cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 8 oz whole mushrooms stems removed
  • 8 oz cherry tomatoes
  • 2-3 green onions cut into 1 inch pieces
