Shish Kebobs

My husband is amazing at making up recipes on the spot. He can take any ingredients we have and make something delicious. I, on the other hand, have to follow a recipe. He made these shish kabobs last night and they were so good. Trying to get a recipe out of him is kind of tricky because he never writes anything down. But I begged him to remember how he cooked this because it was so delicious.
Printable Recipe

Shish Kebobs
1 to 1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts, pounded evenly and cut into strips
fresh mushrooms
1 green pepper, cut into large chunks
1 onion, cut into chunks

1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. ketchup
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
drizzle of olive oil
cayenne pepper
onion powder
garlic salt

Soak skewers in water for about a half hour. (This is to prevent them from burning.) Combine soy sauce, ketchup, lemon juice, garlic, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil. Pour over chicken. Sprinkle cayenne, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic salt over chicken. (Sorry, my husband doesn't do exact measurements. Just sprinkle it on like you would with salt & pepper.) Coat evenly. Marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.   Take each piece of chicken and put on the skewers accordian-style. Or you can cut the chicken into chunks. Put vegetables on skewers. Spray the veggies with cooking spray then top with salt and pepper. Grill chicken for 7-10 minutes on each side. Grill vegetables for a few minutes on each side.
