Make It Now:

  1. In a mixing bowl or shallow casserole dish, whisk together the oil, soy sauce, honey, black pepper, and garlic.
  2. Add the chicken and veggies to the marinade, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
  3. Preheat grill to medium heat (around 350-400 degrees). (Be sure to clean the grates well before grilling.)
  4. Thread the veggies and chicken on skewers and discard the remaining marinade.
  5. Grill for 12-15 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through (at least 165°F or no longer pink inside). Do not overcook the chicken.

Freeze For Later: To a gallon-sized freezer bag or container, add all the ingredients except the peppers and onions. Seal and toss gently to combine. Freeze.

Prepare From Frozen: Note: You will need the chopped peppers and onions on hand to complete this meal. Thaw completely using one of these safe methods. Add the fresh chopped peppers and onions to the bag and toss in the marinade. Follow Steps 3-5.
