Not Your Ordinary Chicken Kabobs

It's not ordinary because it's home made. HAHA! We all know that in most kabobs recipe, yogurt is usually the number ingredient on the list.  What sets my kabob apart for your typical kabob recipe is that it doesn't use yogurt at all and it still came out great. My secret? Cottage and Feta Cheese!

I use chopsticks as my bamboo skewers.

 Contessa's Chicken Kabobs
3 all natural chicken breast
one cup fat free cottage cheese
one half cup fat free feta cheese
garlic powder
dried oregano
dried thyme
dried rosemary
ground cumin
lemon juice

Soak your bamboo skewers in water for half an hour (I used chopsticks).  Cut chicken breast into cubes. Season with salt and pepper. In a big bowl, combine all ingredients together (just eyeball the herbs please). Mix in the chicken with your marinade and put in a ziploc and let it sit for a few hours or over night to get more flavor.  I used my panini grill as I don't have an outdoor grill and I didn't want to use my broiler. It came out perfect.


Served on a bed of spinach and lettuce salad.

I served mine with salad, while B had his with pita bread. I'm sure it's just as good with rice:-).  Tasty and healthy!

Have a great Wednesday.
Bisous, Contessa
