Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

This is a recipe I got from Babycenter's Cooking For Your Family community board and slightly adjusted.  This was absolutely delicious!!!  The chicken was so moist and had such a good flavor.  I will definitely be adding these to the summer grilling rotation.

I served this with Ranch Potato Casserole.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup ranch dressing
3 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
2 teaspoons salt
juice from one lemon
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 to 4 large skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch cubes

In a medium bowl, stir together the olive oil, ranch dressing, Worcestershire sauce, rosemary, salt, lemon juice, white vinegar, and pepper.  Let stand for 5 minutes.  Place chicken in the bowl and stir to coat with the marinade.  Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat the grill for medium-high heat.  Thread the chicken onto skewers and discard the marinade.

Lightly oil the grill grate.  Grill skewers for 8 to 12 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear.
