Honey Lime Chicken Kabobs


If there’s one thing Ryan’s not a fan of hearing, it’s “I found this recipe on Pinterest, and we’re trying it for dinner tonight.” We’ve had a large amount of recipe flops since I signed up for Pinterest, and it’s left our bellies empty and our garbage can full. Needless to say, when I mentioned I was going to try making kabobs and the recipe was from Pinterest, Ryan was hesitant.

The good news for me is that not only were the kabobs easy to make (first time making kabobs!), Ryan immediately liked them and said we’ll have to make the recipe again! SUCCESS! I was a bit worried when I put the 3 tablespoons of soy sauce into the marinade, as I’m not a soy sauce fan, and it was very soy sauce smelling. Overall, the chicken had a nice and light flavor to it, and spiced up our normal grilled chicken dinner that neither of us are wild about to begin with.

We paired our kabobs with sweet potato fries (for me) and regular fries (for Ryan), but would be great with rice and beans or a nice lettuce/pasta salad. Definitely a great summer recipe to try!
