Chicken Kabobs

Lots of challenges with dinner tonight.

  • I HAD to make it because I had the chicken marinating since yesterday and it needed to be cooked.

  • It was raining and I couldn't cook on the grill.

  • I had no skewers except for flavored ones that I've had for a couple of years (gross) and mini ones I use for appetizers.

So I pre-cooked the mushrooms and onions in the microwave and then dumped them on a baking sheet with some grape tomatoes. Then I dumped the marinated chicken on and stuck the entire thing under the broiler (the rack was half way in the oven) and cooked until browned.

I microwaved Uncle Bens Brown Rice in a bag and served the 'kabobs' over the rice. It was very yummy without all the skewering (is that a word??).

Would I make again. YES. I make kabobs all the time so of course I will.... and this was a quick option if need be.
