#MenuMonday: Grilled Chicken Kabobs


If you’re like me when it comes to grilling season, then you’ll plan on taking every opportunity to get outside and fire up the grill. I enjoy preparing the charcoal, getting creative with the meals, and eating flavorful dishes. These appetizing chicken kabobs taste wonderful when you marinate them overnight, and it gives them more flavors while keeping them moist. The best part about them is they are easy to make, healthy, and high and protein.
