We did lots and lots of entertaining in the month of August. I made this meal twice, wow does that take the pressure off when you already know your menu! I had really been wanting to do kabobs...chicken and veggie kabobs over a bed of cilantro lime quinoa. Yes please. So, I tweaked a recipe and this is what I came up with...
Honey Chicken Kabobs
1/4 cup olive oil
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup Bragg Liquid Aminos (or soy sauce)
1/4 tsp pepper
Whisk the marinade together and pour over your:
Marinate overnight in the refrigerator. The next day, soak your wooden skewers in water for 20 minutes and thread your ingredients onto them in any old way you like. I started saying "pepper, onion, chicken, pineapple" in my sleep. I like order, but you could sure mix it up.
For a big party, (we had 32 people over...though only 12 were adults) I did 4 packages of fresh chicken tenders, 1 whole fresh pineapple, 1 bag of mini peppers, and 2 sweet onions. Everything but the onions were from Costco. (oh, and I tripled the marinade!) We did hotdogs for the kids. I didn't get an "after" picture of the kabobs in all their char-grilled gorgeousness laying beautifully on a bed of quinoa...both times I made this we were entertaining, and I would feel like a shmuck..."excuse me everybody, could I just take a picture of this beautiful meal that I just prepared for you all". So, you only get to see it in raw form at this time. But, I will be making these again and again!
Happy First Week of School!!! I have a 3rd grader, a 5th grader, and a 6th grader this year. It was one of my favorite starts to a schoolyear. I think it's going to be a good one!
