Easy, healthy, and delicious meal idea for kids. Chicken kabobs!  Check out this recipe from the cookbook, Real Food Diet, by Dr. Axe.

Kids love eating food on a stick, right?  I love to eat food on a stick. So, instead of corn dogs on a stick, why not make them something healthy and delicious.

When I’ve tried grilling or broiling Kabob’s for my family, I always burn the sticks.  This time was different, thanks to the instruction I was following in a cookbook “soak the kabob sticks in water for at least 2 hours!!”  Genius! I have no idea why I didn’t know this (while I’m sure the rest of you did)  It worked beautifully, and the chicken Kabobs turned out delicious!Chicken Kabobs with Asian Dipping Sauce.

  • 1 medium – onion, red
  • 1 medium – bell pepper, red
  • 1 medium – bell pepper, orange
  • 1 medium – bell pepper, yellow

Serve With:
  • 6 large – pita, whole wheat

Directions

  1. Soak Kabob sticks in water for at least 2 hours!! (very important)
  2. Cut chicken, veggies into uniform sizes. Slide chicken, veggies and pineapple onto kabobs (place an even amount of each ingredient onto sticks).
  3. Grill or broil until done. (Broil is a setting on your oven and the heat source is either on the top section or the bottom of the inside of the oven).
  4. Combine ingredients for sauce in a high powered blender or food processor until smooth.  Use sauce for dipping.
  5. Cut pita into triangles and serve with kabobs. (Serving size: longer kabob sticks will be about 2 kabobs per person as well as 1 full pita)
Note: Bragg liquid aminos is a healthier, gluten-free soy sauce alternative. Look for it at your local health food store. Make sure you get your kabobs soaking about two hours before you start making dinner! Alternately, metal skewers could be used and do not require soaking.

Amy these look so so good in the pictures. It’s making me hungry just looking at them. What a fun idea and kids like anything on a stick and this one is healthy so thank you!!Did you make rice or anything else with it?

These look really yummy – I would serve these with rice or in pitta bread with salad. Can’t wait to try these out on my kids this Easter holiday!

Amy says:

No, we just had the chicken and vegetables. It would be great with rice though!

Teri says:

I personally think Dr.Axe is a bit scrawny but that option wasn’t on the giveaway page! Ha ha ha! Thanks for the LOL moment though!

Nisha says:

Is there a way to make the sauce without cashews? We have allergies 🙂

Amy says:

Candace- You could definitely try to leave it out altogether. Let us know how they turn out!
