Simple Grilled Chicken Skewers with Red Wine Vinaigrette

Print

I love hosting summer parties, especially on 4th of July! This simple recipe for grilled chicken skewers is low carb, delicious, and easy to make. The kids loved it!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

A perfectly grilled chicken breast is tricky. Being such a lean cut of meat, it can easily become dry and overcooked. Threading evenly-sized, marinated chunks onto skewers is a great solution. Not only will the chicken be juicy, it'll be heavy on the flavor from its herby red wine vinegar marinade.

Loaded with fresh colorful veg, these skewers are low in calories and fat, high in protein, rich in vitamins and minerals, and a snap to cook on the hot grill. Excellent for a summer weeknight meal -- sure to be a hit with kids and guests for a get-together, too!
