Hawaiian Shish Kabobs

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1lb boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 purple onion
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 container of button mushrooms
  • A few chunks of pineapple
  • salt and pepper
  • *The key to this recipe is to slice everything into equal sizes (I like 1 inch x 1 inch pieces), so that it cooks equally!

DIRECTIONS:

  • Turn grill on medium-high
  • Slice all the ingredients into equal-sized chunks/pieces
  • Create an assembly line, for ex., chicken, pineapple, onion, red bell pepper, mushroom
  • Using skewers, start putting one piece of each food onto the skewer and then repeat the pattern until there is no more room on the skewer
  • Once all the skewers are done, sprinkle them with salt and pepper
  • Put the skewers on the grill
  • I grill them for 5-6mins per side (won't take long to cook since the chicken is cut into smaller pieces)
  • When done, remove from the grill and ENJOY!

OTHER OPTIONS:

  • Enjoy these skewers over rice or on top of a bed of spinach
  • Add a healthy fat like avocado (or, to keep with the Hawaiian theme, mix in some macadamia nuts and/or cashews)
  • Feel free to omit or add any veggies/proteins of your liking (cherry tomatoes would be a great addition, as would shrimp!)
