I love grilling! I love it so much that I’ve even been known to fire up the grill in the middle of a snow storm. One of the things we most frequently grill here at the Brink casa is chicken. It’s delicious, it’s healthy, and quite frankly, it’s cheap! Even better than JUST chicken are kabobs. I love kabobs because, by adding veggies, you stretch your meat dollar so much farther. They also offer perfect portion control! Here’s a yummy & healthy chicken kabob recipe I received from the people at Medifast!
