Food Frenzy Friday ~ Chicken Kebobs

Happy Friday!!!
Today's recipe is not only really tasty, it's...of course...super easy!!!
Who doesn't like chicken and asparagus especially served in a fun way!

Here is what you will need:
  • 4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 8 ounces each)
  • 1/2 pound asparagus
  • 2 teaspoons savory (trust me, you want the ground herb. Not the leaf)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

    Here is what to do:
  • Preheat oven to 350 and place your kebob sticks in a pan of water to soak (You do this so they won’t catch fire in the oven. If you are not using metal skewers).
  • Chop your asparagus into 1 or 1 -1/2 inch pieces.
  • Chop your chicken into bite sized pieces. (Approximately 1 or 1-1/2 inch square cubes)
  • Place all ingredients in a Ziplock back, and mix it all around.
  • Next, alternate placing your asparagus and chicken on your kebob sticks. I had a lot of asparagus, so I placed about 3-4 pieces together between the chicken pieces.  (I had so much that I baked some off the kabob sticks!)
  • Put your Kebobs on a parchment lined cookie sheet and place in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • When the 10 minutes are up, flip your kebobs over and switch your oven from bake to broil for another 10-15 minutes, or until you have a nice browned bit of chicken. A thermometer should read about 170.


    A side note....I couldn't find savory, so I used this chicken seasoning and it turned out perfectly!
    Add some rice and you have a balanced meal...meat, veggies and carbs!  Plus, it's healthy!
