Calories: 172kcal

Ingredients

Meat - Poultry

  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, about 2 large breasts

Dried Spices - Seasonings

  • 3 to 4 tbsp Skinny5 Greek Seasoning, or pre-blended Greek Seasoning w/o sugar, starches, chemicals

Fresh Produce

  • 2 lrg bell pepper[s], 1 red + 1 orange, or any color
  • 2 red onion[s]

Optional

  • choose 1 {or more}: cherry tomatoes, zucchini, mushrooms

Instructions

  • Place rack in position closest to broiler while still leaving enough room so that shish kabobs don't touch broiler elements. Turn oven broiler on low to preheat, leaving door slightly ajar so broiler remains on. Or set toaster oven to broil and preheat.
  • Wash vegetables. Remove stem, membranes, and seeds from bell peppers. Cut peppers into pieces as pictured. Cut onion into equal size pieces. If using, cut zucchini in half and slice into half circles. If using, leave cherry tomatoes and mushrooms whole. Cube chicken breasts.
  • Line broiling pan or baking sheet with foil. Set oven broiler to low or broil in toaster oven. Alternate meat and vegetables and add to skewers. Add skewers to baking sheet. No skewers, no worries, just broil a mix of meat and veggies on foil lined broiling pan or baking sheet.
  • Lightly spray kabobs with propellant-free cooking oil spray {avocado, coconut, or extra virgin olive oil}. Sprinkle with half of Greek seasoning {recipe link follows}. Turn kabobs over, lightly spray with cooking oil. Sprinkle with remaining half of Greek Seasoning.
  • Broil 5-10 minutes or until vegetables are lightly browned. Remove kabobs from oven, turn over using tongs and broil 5-10 minutes longer or until chicken is cooked through. If using, add salt and pepper, to taste. NOTE - you can also grill the kabobs on the barbecue. Chicken Shish Kabobs go well with "riced" cauliflower. Recipe link follows.
  • Greek Seasoning recipe - mix 2 tablespoons onion powder with ΒΌ teaspoon pepper and 2 teaspoons each of the following: spearmint, garlic powder, ground oregano. If you don't have spearmint you can use a mint tea bag. Cut tea bag open and measure out 2 teaspoons crushed mint leaves.
