Every week it's the same thing....
"What do you guys want for dinner this week?"
I let my son and husband choose and then I make something healthy for myself!
So my son requested chicken kabobs on the grill for dinner. My husband doesn't like to come home from work during the week and have to grill.
Since it is Wednesday and rainy and chilly out anyways, I googled for a recipe for Baked Chicken Kabobs and I found one!
WOW were these ever good! This is actually a meal I would eat along with my guys and although there were only three of us eating, there wasn't very much left over!
Click here for the printable version of the full recipe. It is lengthy but really not hard to make. I cut out a lot of it by opting to make mine without the skewers (see #11 NOTE on the recipe) and I doubled the marinade recipe.
Here's how I did it.....
Early in the morning I cut up my extra large chicken breasts (found at Aldi's) into chunks and put them in the original marinade recipe and then into the fridge for the day. The longer they marinate the better.
I cut up the zucchini, peppers, red onion and mini potatoes. The mushrooms and grape tomatoes stay whole. The recipe tells you to line them all up in the pan like they were on a skewer but it didn't all fit so I just threw it all in together. I added the snow peas for color.
This recipe makes a lot. The pan above is a lasagna pan and I needed another 9 x 13 to fit the rest of the chicken and vegetables.
When both pans were full I poured and brushed another batch of the marinade over the top. Into the oven at 450 degrees for 35 minutes and it came out SO good.
The chicken stayed tender, not dried out like it can get on the grill, and the veggies were crisp. Served over rice with the marinade from the pan and YUM!
I did not miss the grill marks on the chicken at all and my husband didn't have to get wet :-)
I will definitely be making this recipe again.....rain or shine!
P.S. It is so hard photographing food! Is it just me?
