cups  instant white rice, uncooked
medium  each: zucchini and red pepper, finely chopped
cups  low-sodium chicken broth

Make It

PREHEAT grill to medium-high heat. Meanwhile, soak 4 wooden skewers in water. Toss shrimp with 1/4 cup of the dressing. Let stand 10 min. to marinate. Drain; discard marinade. Place shrimp evenly on skewers.

LAYER 3 (14-inch) squares of foil. Fold foil in half. Double fold the 2 opposite sides to make a pouch. Place rice, zucchini and peppers in pouch. Gradually add chicken broth and remaining 1/4 cup dressing. Double fold foil at top of pouch to seal, leaving room for air to circulate inside pouch.

PLACE foil packet on grate of grill; cover grill with lid. Grill 10 to 15 min. or until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Let stand 5 min. Meanwhile, place skewers on grill. Grill 5 min. or until shrimp turn pink. Place rice mixture on serving platter; top with shrimp. Sprinkle with onions.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Cooking Know-How
As with most shellfish, fresh shrimp should be cooked briefly to avoid a tough, rubbery texture. When grilling peeled and deveined shrimp, cook just until they turn pink and begin to curl - only a few minutes.
Use Your Oven
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Assemble the foil packets as directed. Bake 15 min. Remove from the oven; let stand 5 min. Meanwhile, cook the shrimp on a grill pan which has been preheated on medium-high heat. Cook 3 min. on each side or until the shrimp turn pink. Serve as directed.
