I’ve always loved kebabs….for some reason they are so much more fun and elightful than just grilled chicken breast!

Perhaps it’s the colors or the pretty display of smaller pieces of meat stacked together. You can add veggies so easily and create beautiful colors of marinated meats and veggies!

Shrimp, steak, chicken, pork…the possibilities are endless and the leftovers are always useful! Chop the leftovers and add to eggs or a salad or just enjoy them alone.

This time around I used my Magic Bullet to create a quick “Chimichurri Sauce” which makes a really niceĀ fresh flavor. I also added another skewer of cherry tomatoes to the grill and served it alongside the chicken. If I had mushrooms and a red pepper I would have added them in the mix!
