Chicken and Vegetable Kabobs

I promised a vegetable recipe this week and I aim to please! These Chicken and Vegetable Kabobs are perfect for summer grilling, and great for helping you get swimsuit ready.

I have about 15 pounds of baby weight left to lose, so I recently signed up for the 21 Day Fix through BeachBody (I'm now a coach too!).  Basically it's 21 days of clean eating, reasonable portion sizes, and effective workouts.  The results people get are incredible and I'm looking forward to starting.  My official first day is this coming Monday!

After I signed up for the challenge, I figured that there was no reason for me to wait to start eating better.  There's no better day than today!  I went shopping and bought an incredible amount of fruit and vegetables.  I love them anyway, so I knew it wouldn't be an issue for me to be able to eat them all.

Not too long ago we were at our friend's house and they served kabobs for dinner.  Mike and I really enjoyed them and wondered why I don't make them more often.  With all the delicious vegetables in the house, this was the perfect time to make some kabobs.  The great thing about these is how customizable they are!  I don't care for mushrooms and Mike doesn't like zucchini, so we traded vegetables.  You could make kabobs for each person based on what everyone likes too.  Or, get the family involved and have them make their own kabobs!

Chicken and Vegetable Kabobs

Makes 8, about 3-4 servings

1 pound chicken breasts
2 Tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
2 Tablespoons olive oil
juice of 1/2 a lemon
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
salt and pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 zucchini
1 onion
2 potatoes
1 pint of mushrooms

1.  Cut the chicken breasts into 1 inch pieces.

2.  Mix the Greek yogurt, olive oil, lemon, garlic cloves, salt, and pepper together to form a marinade.  Add the chicken and stir to coat.  Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 1 hour, up to 8 hours.

3.  While the chicken is marinating, soak wooden skewers in water.  This will help prevent them from burning.  You can also use metal skewers if you have them.

4.  Cut pepper, zucchini, onion, and potatoes into large chunks.  Cut mushrooms in half.

5.  Thread the chicken and vegetables onto the skewers, alternating as desired.

6.  Place on a hot grill and cook for 5 minutes, then flip and cook an additional 5 minutes, until the chicken is completely cooked through.

Serve hot.
