Ingredients

For the Glaze
1 cup water
1½ Tbsp corn starch
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp honey
¼ cup barbecue sauce
1 tsp garlic, minced
½ Tbsp crushed red pepper flakes
For the Skewers
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or tenders
3 Tbsp soy sauce
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp honey
2 tsp garlic, minced
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp pepper
1 medium zucchini, sliced into ½” rings
1 yellow squash, sliced into ½” rings
1 medium red onion, sliced into 2” pieces
1 red bell pepper, sliced into 2” pieces

Instructions

For the Skewers
Slice the chicken breasts or tenders into 1” cubes; set aside.
In a small glass baking dish, whisk together the soy sauce, olive oil, honey, garlic, salt and pepper. Place chicken in dish and toss lightly until well coated.
Cover dish and place in the refrigerator to marinate for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, soak 8 8”wooden skewers in water. (Note: This is a great time to make the Glaze.)
Preheat grill to medium heat.
Thread chicken, zucchini, squash, onion and pepper onto the skewers.
Place skewers on grill and brush tops generously with Glaze. Close grill and cook for 5-6 minutes. (Note: The sugars in the glaze may cause the grill to smoke and possibly flare up. Just keep a close eye on the grill. If it flares up, use a spray bottle filled with water to put out the flame.)
Flip skewers and brush tops with remaining Glaze. Cook for 5-6 more minutes, or until chicken is completely cooked.
For the Glaze
Mix ½ cup of the water with the corn starch until well combined. Set aside.
Using a small sauce pan, combine the remaining ingredients (remaining ½ cup of water, brown sugar, honey, barbecue sauce, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes) over medium-high heat. Bring mixture to a boil. Let mixture boil for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat to low and stir in the cornstarch mixture. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, for 1-2 minutes or until the sauce thickens. Set Glaze aside.
