I Love Chicken, I Love Protein

Greek Chicken Kabobs!

Chicken is one of my favorite meals. There are so many ways you can cook chicken, the options are endless. Of course one of my favorite ways is the healthy way. I am not a fan of sauce (other than BBQ) and I don't think it is necessary when just a little bit of seasoning can go a long way. Besides, if you add sauces and fry up some chicken you totally lose out on the amazing nutritional benefits of chicken. Chicken is low in fat, VERY high in protein (a single serving of chicken breast has 22grams of protein), and low in carbs. Combine the health benefits with this great recipe and you will have an amazing guilt-free meal you will love!

What you'll need:
 1-2 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breast
1-2 Whole Lemons (depending on size)
Olive Oil

1.) Preheat your grill to the desired setting.
2.) Cut chicken into 1 1/2 inch thick cubes.
3. In a bowl pour 1/2-1 cup of olive oil (the amount of olive oil you will use will vary depending on how large the bowl is, but it should be enough to cover the chicken.
Add 1/2-1 lemon, and salt, pepper and garlic to taste.
5.) Toss chicken into the olive oil and lemon mix and let sit for 15 minutes.
6.) Place chicken on kabob skewers.
7.) Squeeze the remaining lemon juice over the chicken.
8.) Sprinkle the oregano over the kabobs.
9.) Cook 15 minutes rotating every 5 minutes. If you need to cook longer then do so.

This meal is: Carb Friendly, Low-Fat, High Protein, Low Sodium and DELICIOUS :)
