Greek Chicken Kabobs

I love summer vacation for so many reasons but I especially love having the opportunity to cook more elaborate meals during the summer. I am the type of person that likes to try new recipes and I rarely cook the same thing more than twice. I think I just get bored. Anyways, since I had this last week before school starts I meal planned some new recipes from my Newlywed cookbook and from Against All Grain. One of the recipes that was a huge hit with Mark and our adopted son, Greg (hehe), were the Greek Kabobs.

I marinated the chicken for several hours in a Greek vinaigrette that I made. It was super easy... I combined lemon juice, red wine vinegar,  garlic cloves minced (then crushed into a paste), oregano, dijon mustard, sea salt, black pepper, and olive oil. I used the Against All Grain recipe for the dressing. This made the chicken incredibly tender and delicious! I skewered the cubed chicken, red onion, and bell peppers. Earlier in the day I diced tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onion to make a salad. I used the extra vinaigrette as a dressing for the salad. I then made a Tzatziki sauce using this recipe. It was basically greek yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, cucumber, and salt & pepper. I omitted the dill because I didn't have any in the house. It was a great dipping sauce for the veggies and chicken. I also made a little brown rice for an extra side. 

I was so impressed with how this turned out! It will definitely be a dish I make again and that's saying a lot! Plus there's the added bonus that its healthy!
