Grilled Teriyaki Chicken and Zucchini Spears

My Aunt Lynne, Uncle Scott, and family were in town last weekend.  We hosted a little get together…. they live in Pennsylvania so we don’t get to see them much.  It’s always fun to visit and catch up with family.  Aunt Lynne is hilarious she kept us laughing the entire evening!  We made Teriyaki Grilled Chicken,  Zucchini Spears, the Artisan bread, and salads.  Banana Fosters for dessert, which brought out claps and cheers!  Overall it was a very enjoyable evening and so fun to see them!
FYI…The little poop-looking things are purple potato fingerlings

Grilled Zucchini Spears   (just made that up on the fly!)

5 small zucchini
1/4 C olive oil- drizzled
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion salt
Sea salt and pepper

Cut the zucchini into 1/4 inch long spears, lay on a prepping plate.  Drizzle olive oil back and forth over zucchini, sprinkle evenly the remaining ingredients.  Grill along side any main dish meat, turn every few minutes to cook evenly.

    This sounds so good! Thanks for the recipe, Ruth! Growing up, we would cut up zucchini and marinate them in italian dressing. we would then grill them and sprinkle parmesan cheese on top after we flipped them back over. Grill until the cheese has melted. Yum! – Stina
