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.

3. Cut the vegetables into large chunks.

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...
