Healthy grilled chicken kabobs

zesty grilled chicken2It’s that time of year where the days are long, the nights are humid, and the mosquitos are militant. It’s also the time of year when people are out in the yard firing up the grills. Unfortunately, typical BBQ fare is not always the most diet friendly. Have you seen the nutrition facts on a hot dog with a bun? Its not pretty. And who only has one? For this reason, I found us a recipe that can satisfy our innate American need to cook meat on fire wihtout satisfying our American tendency to be morbidly obese. Happy grilling
