These fajita-style chicken and veggies are SO good! Serve 'em with our Holy Moly Guacamole, and get ready for a grilly-good fiesta...

1 lb. raw boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 tbsp. fajita seasoning mix
1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch strips
1 green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch strips
1 medium onion, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 lime, cut into 4 wedges

If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20 minutes to prevent burning. (You'll need four.)

Season chicken with fajita seasoning. Alternately thread chicken and veggies onto four skewers, tightly packing the pieces together.

Bring a grill sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Grill kebabs for 5 minutes with the grill cover down.

Flip kebabs. With the grill cover down, grill for 6 - 8 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. 

Serve with lime wedges, and squeeze over kebabs before eating!

This sweet and savory combo is almost TOO delicious. Don't say we didn't warn you...

1/4 cup low-sugar apricot preserves
1 tbsp. reduced-sodium/lite soy sauce

2 cups butternut squash cut into 1-inch cubes (see HG Tip!)
2 cups apples cut into 1-inch chunks
12 oz. (about 4 links) fully cooked chicken sausage with 8g fat or less per 3-oz. serving (like the kind by Applegate Organics), sliced into 1-inch coins

If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20 minutes to prevent burning. (You’ll need six.)

To make the glaze, in a small bowl, combine preserves with soy sauce. Stir until uniform.

Place squash and apples in a large microwave-safe bowl with 1 tbsp. water. Cover and microwave for 2 minutes. Stir, and microwave for 2 more minutes, or until squash has slightly softened.

Alternately thread squash, apples, and sausage coins onto six skewers, tightly packing pieces together.

Spray a grill with nonstick spray and bring to medium-low heat. Brush all sides of the kebabs with the glaze. Grill for 6 minutes with the grill cover down.

Flip kebabs. With the grill cover down, grill for 6 - 8 minutes, or until squash has softened. Enjoy!


HG Tip! Look for pre-cubed squash in the produce section. And click here to read up on how to cube it yourself!


HG Alternative! Cook your kebabs on a grill pan, and adjust cook times as needed. If the pan doesn't have a lid, just loosely cover it with a skillet lid.
