    Sunday Supper

    Not the last-of-the-season kebabs, then Greek salad

    Chicken kebabs.
    Karoline Boehm Goodnick for The Boston Globe
    Chicken kebabs.

    A zesty lemon-garlic vinaigrette on chicken skewers is the base for two simple meals. Begin by marinating chicken, summer squash, and bell peppers. Thread them on skewers separately and fire up the grill. Now make a silent wish that this won’t be the last grill this season. Serve the chicken and vegetable kebabs with a herb-heavy basmati rice (after making the rice, stir in lots of parsley, dill, oregano, or other fresh greens) or lightly
    grill some flatbreads after the skewers come off the fire.

    On Day 2, bolster the vinaigrette with Greek yogurt for a tangy but creamy dressing for a Greek salad with grilled chicken. Combine romaine lettuce with plenty of end-of-season vegetables and perk up the flavors with Kalamata olives and feta cheese. Enjoy the meal and the small number of dishes waiting to be washed.


    (For kebabs, salad)


    2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken
