  1. 1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  2. 16 yellow baby pattypan squash (about 1 pound)
  3. 1 large red onion, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  4. 8 small tomatillos, halved (about 1/2 pound)
  5. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  6. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  7. 3 tablespoons chopped mint
  8. 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  9. 1 garlic clove, minced
  10. 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  11. 1 ounce crumbled feta cheese
  1. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. On four 14-inch-long metal skewers, tightly thread the chicken, pattypans, red onion and tomatillos in an alternating pattern. Brush the skewers with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Grill the skewers over a medium-hot fire, turning frequently, until the chicken is just cooked through and the vegetables are lightly charred and barely tender, about 12 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mint, parsley, garlic, vinegar and the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil; season with salt and pepper.
  4. Slide the chicken and vegetables off the skewers and onto plates. Spoon the vinaigrette on top, sprinkle with the feta and serve.
