Yummy Broiled Chicken Kabobs!


Hey All!

I don’t know about you, but I’m all about the comfort foods. When I say comfort food, I mean foods that are not only yummy, but nostalgic and bring up some good memories. They are also foods that are fun for me to eat and I love to have them mainly for dinner with my family. That’s what comfort is all about for me. Having a relaxing night at home enjoying the company of the people you love and eating some foods that make you happy. What’s better than foods you don’t have to worry about getting messy with? I love it when I can just pick up what I’m eating (with both hands) and just get messy. I’m super excited to partner with Foster Farms to share one of my favorite comfort food recipes using their Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken! It’s a healthier twist on chicken kabobs I grew up eating in NYC.

Our original kabobs were soaked in BBQ sauce. When I got older, we would put wine, beer and everything under the sun on them and serve them with bread kind of like a Gyro. I’ve taken my old kabobs and cut out all the junk and made a New Comfort Food recipe with these. I honestly made a New Years resolution to be more health-conscious with my daily life and that includes the way I eat. That’s why I was stoked to learn about Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken. This chicken is is antibiotic free, locally raised, fresh and natural.


What’s great about this chicken is, it is grown without any antibiotics ever. Foster Farms offers fresh, all natural chicken that is American Humane Certified and fed a 100% vegetarian diet, without any added hormones or steroids. How awesome is that folks?! It’s the only way we eat chicken these days and I knew immediately that I wanted make some of my favorite Chicken Kabobs with them, only a bit healthier. Usually we would marinade these kabobs in a wine or beer marinade, slap them on the grill, pour some BBQ sauce on them, add fruits to them and a bunch of other stuff. Not the healthiest way to make them I know!

Instead of grilling the chicken kabobs, I decided to broil them and switch up a lot of the ingredients. We also cut out the bread! That’s one thing I’ve needed to cut back on in my diet, since I LOVE bread with a passion. I digress…


Here is the recipe below! It’s beyond tasty and you’ll definitely love these chicken kabobs.
