     Did I mention it was zucchini season?  If you have a garden, use small zucchini, often and you won't ever get the monsters.

Golden Chicken Breasts, Grilled

Total time: 30 minutes
   When you are marinating any sort of meat it helps to poke a fork into it, then turn the meat several times to soak up the marinade.  The orange marmalade and sherry give the chicken sweetness, while the ginger and garlic add some heat.
