Chicken Kabobs On The Grill
Chillin’ and Grillin’ Chicken Kabobs on the grill, yes my friends it is that time of the year in many areas of the world and chicken is a great grilling item.
One of the best things about making kabobs is that the combination of ingredients is endless. You can add as much or as little of anything you like to eat until you get to the end of the skewer that is.
In addition, you can eat them straight grilled like these have been cooked or add your favorite marinade for even more mouthwatering fun.
With all of the fruits, veggies, and marinades to choose from, you could eat them every day for a month and never have the same kind twice.
- 2-3 boneless, skinless free-range chicken breasts
- Vine ripe Cherry tomatoes
- Pineapple chunks
- Red, green and/or yellow Bell peppers
- Sea Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- Wash the chicken breasts and pat them dry. Slice them into bite size pieces.
- Keep the slices about the same size as the pineapple chunks
- You want them to cook through without burning the fruit and veggies.
- Slice the bell peppers into desired size pieces. Using red and green peppers will make your kabobs more appealing, but just one will do because you already have the yellow of the pineapple
- Peel the pineapple and slice it into bite size pieces.
- Start with a piece of veggie or fruit to help hold the chicken on the skewer. Then alternate the meat and veggies as you like.
- After you’ve finished assembling your kabobs, it’s time to add your seasoning. We’re using salt and pepper only, but you could add a marinade here, if you desired.
- Using a non-stick spray, lightly spray the grill grates to prevent the kabobs from sticking.
- Warm the grill to a medium-high heat.
- Place the kabobs on the grill, leaving room between each one so they do not stick to one another.
- Grill kabobs for three to four minutes per side or until the meat is fully cooked. Cooking time will vary depending on the ingredients you used and the size you sliceds food
- when the are cooked to your likeing remove and serve your guests
In this recipe, we chose to use free range chicken but you can use any grass feed meat that fits your lifestyle. While we want our diets to remain mostly plant-based, a lot of us continue to enjoy free range chicken, open range feed beef and wild caught seafood in our diets.
Kabobs are perfect for picky eaters because they can easily be customized for each person. Just cut up some chicken, seafood or beef along with a variety of fruits and veggies and let everyone make their own.
Today the food in the spotlight is Pineapple: Pineapple is an excellent source of vitamin C and the B complex plus a small amount of vitiman A. In the mineral department, it adds potassium, calcium, copper and more plus it adds a little fiber to our diet.
