If there is one thing I want my summer dinner prep to be...it's easy. I'm much more interested in spending quality time with my family than slaving away in the kitchen, so I'm always on the lookout for easy dinner ideas to add to my summer menu plan. Now kabobs have been one of our go-to summer meals for ages. We love to grill out and there's nothing quite as tasty as a meat and veggie kabob straight off the grill. And while preparing kabobs is ridiculously easy already...it's just about to get even easier!
My hubs, being the grill master that he is, often prepares his own marinades. He can make ordinary chicken sing with his concoctions, so when he suggested marinating the chicken for our latest attempt at kabobs with ready made Greek salad dressing, I had my reservations. Well, let me tell you...Those reservations were unfounded. His Greek dressing kabobs were among the tastiest we've ever had. They were just the kind of light dinner you would want on a hot summer day!
So, here's how to make this super easy kabob recipe...
Ingredients (serves 4):
Greek salad dressing
3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 green pepper
1 red Pepper
1/2 of a red onion
1. Cube the chicken.
2. Combine the chicken and Greek dressing in a plastic bag and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe
We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family ...read more
3. Cut the vegetables into large chunks.
4. Assemble the kabobs on the skewers.
5. Place on the grill until the vegetables are browned and the chicken is cooked through.
Our grill just so happened to die on us recently, so we were thrilled to try out the Elevate portable grill. We loved how easy it was to set up, as in there was no assembly required (haha) and we also appreciate how fast it heated up because were were HUNGRY! Just sayin'.
I have to admit that I'm not overly comfortable operating a big grill by myself, but this little number is something I could handle all on my own! S'mores here I come...
