honey balsalmic chicken skewers-2

We eat a lot of chicken in my house. Especially when we’re working on eating leaner and cleaner meals. It’s my default when I want to eat healthy without a lot of effort. Problem is, chicken can get very boring, very quickly. So, I’ve become rather crafty over the years of eating simple chicken breast meals that are simultaneously NOT boring and bland. Also, something about putting food on a stick makes it so much more fun!

These Honey Balsamic Chicken Skewers are my attempt to make chicken fun (ya know, without covering it in butter and flour and deep frying it).

The recipe for these skewers is super simple which I love! Just mix all of the ingredients together, add the chicken, and let it marinade for a bit.

From there you just stick the chicken on some skewers and cook them in a skillet over a bit of olive or coconut oil (or really whatever oil you so desire).
