Justin and I have pretty much lived on this meal all summer. No lie, I have made every week. It is flavorful, fresh, quick, no cleanup and pretty much hassle free when thinking of what I need to buy for it.
So many times I get stuck in a food rut. I have no idea what to make for dinner. I have hundreds of recipes at my disposal and still somehow manage not to be inspired by anything sometimes. This usually happens in times where we are super busy and we get home late at night. I train late a lot during the weekdays and if I don't have time to prep dinner that morning or we have leftovers, the last thing I want to do at 8:30 pm is spent an hour cooking.
That is why Chicken and Veggie Skewers has been my go to and dinner BFF this summer. I don't know what to make? Not have time? Chicken and veggies skewers it is! It is light and healthy, takes 10 minutes to assemble and Justin gets to get his grill on (aka his outdoor baby). It is a win-win for all parties involved.
I usually make enough for a family of 10. 🙂 They make great leftovers for us to eat the next night and take for lunch. Use whichever summer veggies are your favorite and some with spices. I like to keep it simple -- salt and pepper -- I usually always go for a variety of squash, red onion, peppers, eggplant and always pineapple. That is my secret ingredient that really makes these over the top. If you have never had grilled pineapple so yourself a favor and go make these for dinner tonight! The sweet and juicy pineapple is the perfect compliment to the crunchy and savory flavors of the other veggies and chicken.
The chicken can be marinated the night before and just be kept in the fridge. If you don't have time to do that they are perfect with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper right before you throw on the grill. Make it work for you. Whatever flavor combos you like and resources time allows for. This is a fuss-free, mess-free and easily adaptable recipe.
I can't wait for you to make this your go to "I don't know what I want to make for dinner" healthy recipe!
