Easy. Tasty. Fast. Chicken and vegetables on a stick. Make a lovely cucumber tomato salad and you have bariatric perfection on a plate.


  • Chicken breast or thighs, cut into 2 inch cubes, thighs are much juicier
  • Red onion petals
  • Red, yellow and green pepper cubes (or zucchini or cherry tomatoes)
  • metal or bamboo skewers


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Zest and juice of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Spray with vegetable cooking spray and preheat grill to 500 degrees.
  • Thread the chicken and vegetables on the bamboo skewers. Do not crowd or the chicken will not cook.
  • Pop the kebabs on a screaming hot grill and baste with the marinade throughout cooking.
