Call me a simpleton for posting this, but when I went keto I needed a reminder that pretty much everything on a skewer is fair game. That’s why I’ve been getting totally into chicken kebab, which is not only great for a dinner but also good to bring for lunch.
If you’re making chicken kebabs, here are a few different ways I’ve made them:
- Add bacon to the skewers and dip them in ranch dressing.
- Slather in pesto and skewer with tomatoes
- Season in lemon pepper seasoning, then skewer with tomatoes and mozzarella
- Pre-cook chicken, cover in buffalo sauce, skewer with carrots/celery and serve with bleu cheese
Marinades (since marinades don’t need to be exact, I usually measure by how much I’m in the mood for each ingredient that day, plus a little common sense like never needing more than a tablespoon or two of lemon juice):
- Feta brine, feta, a dash of lemon juice and rosemary
- Olive oil, lime juice, chili powder, onion powder and garlic powder
- Olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and oregano
- Peanut butter, soy sauce, lime juice, curry powder and garlic
- Dijon mustard, rosemary
- Olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic and thyme
- Old Bay, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and a little black pepper.
- Olive oil, lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper.
