One of my New Year’s resolutions is to eat better. I am sure I am not alone, that is probably one of the most common resolutions around.  One of the biggest challenges for me is to find ways to make healthy meals that my kids will actually eat.  I could make something very healthy like a Quinoa and Chickpea salad with peas, but my kids wouldn’t touch it, and my husband probably wouldn’t either.  So since I don’t want to make two meals, I have to work with my family’s likes and dislikes. Something I know they like is Chicken Kebobs or as we usually call it Chicken-on-a-Stick.  I decided to create a healthy kebob with Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken Chunks, lots of vegetables, and an orange dipping sauce.

 

Orange sauce goes perfectly with chicken, and because the tastes complement each other so well.  I decided to go with onions, red peppers and zucchini for the vegetables on the kebobs, since that is a nice mix of textures and colors.  Zucchini are not even close to my kids favorite, so I knew they would appreciate having an orange sauce to help hide the taste!

Making the Chicken Kebobs

 

Juicing the Oranges

I squeezed the oranges with my citrus juicer, and combined it with a little vinegar, honey and cornstarch for a quick orange sauce.  I also brushed the sauce on the kebobs before I baked them, to add even more citrus flavor to the meal.

Prepping the Chicken Kebobs

The meal was a big hit with my family, and my kids even ate some zucchini.  I am sure I will make it again soon.  It would be perfect for the grill this summer, but it worked well in the oven too.

  1. That orange sauce looks very interesting, and something I haven’t tried before. Thanks for the recipe. And I am so with you on that cutting up raw chicken thing…yuck! We use the Tyson Grilled & Ready often so that I can avoid that part and save time!

  2. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe. It seems to me that it should be incredibly tasty and not greasy at the same time. I like dishes that do not need to be cooked for a long time and also those that do not require special skills in order for the dish to turn out delicious. Therefore, chicken dishes are always number one on my list, because it is easy to prepare and not greasy, which is also very important to me. But to be honest, I have not tried it in combination with orange sauce yet. It seems that it is high time for me to open new gastronomic horizons and try something unusual for me. Hope I like it.

  7. Thank you for sharing this. In fact, in the modern world, where there are a lot of dishes made from unhealthy ingredients, such recipes are more important than ever. First of all, we must always take care of our health and the health of our children. But when you mention healthy food, everyone has an association with something tasteless and insipid, although this is not the case. It seems to me that this dish is one of the brightest examples of healthy and delicious food. Therefore, let’s eat healthy food as a priority and then many problems can be avoided.
