Chicken and Vegetable skewers are a great combo of protein and vegetables. The chicken can be grilled, broiled, or cooked in an instant pot. Depending on my family's mood, we pair it with saffron rice, or with a garden salad, or with toasted pitas and hummus. These skewers make for great finger foods for entertaining as well!
Prep: Rinse and soak rice while you prep the vegetables and make marinade. Cut chicken in 1 inch pieces. Cut your choice of vegetables in a similar size.
