Today is Day 4 on my health journey. So far I’ve been consistent in going to the gym, running, and tracking my eating. I definitely could improve in how much water I’m drinking but other than that, I feel like I’m doing well. I’ll be posting an update on my workouts a little later after I get back from the gym.
I thought I’d share the recipe for last night’s dinner: Chicken Kabobs!
The awesome thing about Kabobs is that they’re totally customizable. You can easily sub in or out healthier items. The most complicated part of this recipe, which is not complicated at all, is the marinade.
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 2 tbs rice vinegar
- Garlic salt
- Onion powder
- Chili powder
- Any other desired seasoning
- 1-2 chicken breasts
- 1 zucchini
- 1 yellow squash
- 1 red onion
- 1 bell pepper
- Any other vegetables
- If you are using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water for at least an hour before you put them on the grill. If you don’t, the skewer will catch fire and you’ll end up with a really charcoal-ly mess.
- Chop all chicken and vegetables to about 1 inch cubes. Marinade chicken in the soy sauce, orange juice, and vinegar for at least 1 hour.
- Thread the chicken and vegetables onto each skewer and sprinkle garlic salt, onion powder, chili powder, and any other desired seasoning onto the whole skewer.
- Cook for around 10 minutes, making sure the chicken is cooked to 165 degrees. Serve with rice for a delicious and filling dinner!
This recipe, even when you serve it with 1/4 cup rice, only comes out to about 280 Calories per serving. You may want to brush a sauce over it in the last minute or so of cooking. 2 tbsp of BBQ sauce will add about 67 calories and 2 tbsp of Teriyaki sauce will add only about 34 calories.
