In partnership with Zespri Kiwifruit.


Kebabs bring the fun factor to grilling, and in this recipe, Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit provides a naturally sweet, unexpected flavor boost to an otherwise classic balsamic chicken and zucchini pairing. Because most of the time required for this recipe is for allowing the chicken to marinate, it’s a super convenient meal to make, even on weeknights. Marinate your chicken at lunchtime and by dinner, all you have to do is cut your kiwifruit, skewer, grill, and enjoy.

45 minutes

2 Servings


1/2 lb boneless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces

¼ cup balsamic vinegar

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

4 Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit

1-2 medium zucchini, sliced into thick rounds



  1. In a bowl, combine chicken, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning and toss to combine. Cover, refrigerate, and allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.
  2. When ready to cook, peel kiwi and cut into halves. Optional: Leave skin on.
  3. Assemble 4 skewers with alternating pieces of chicken, zucchini, and kiwi. Grill over medium heat until chicken is cooked through.


Grilling SunGold Kiwifruit is a fun, alternative way to enjoy its tropical sweet flavor and enjoy an experience that’s new and unexpected, while getting in a hefty dose of vitamin C. Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit is naturally high in vitamin C and provides 290% of the recommended daily value per serving (2 kiwifruit). In fact, you can get 100% of your daily vitamin C needs in just 1 fruit. Another preparation option is to simply halve the kiwifruit before skewering. Bonus? The hairless skin is edible and provides double the fiber than eating the flesh alone.
