This quick and easy grilled chicken kebab recipe is complete with a healthy yogurt mint sauce. A little taste of the Middle East, that makes for some easy cooking!
Guess who’s back.
Taylor’s back… Ok, I’ll stop. That song was just stuck in my head.
Besides, I didn’t really leave. So, the whole opening of this dealio makes no sense.
I came to a sad realization this past weekend: I am an 83 year old woman living inside a 23 year olds body.
I was invited to a bachelorette party on Saturday night, and I thought it sounded pretty fun! Mr. FFF and I are total party animals, and usually spend our weekends watching The Food Network, (note the sarcasm in “party animals”) so I thought it might be neat-o to go out with some girls.
Until I read the starting time of the party: 8 PM!
The dinner (which was the first event out of 3 EVENTS) started at 8. SO LATE.
So, I didn’t go. Because I fall asleep by 10, so starting the evening at 8 is just too late for this grandma. Are you judging me?
If not, you probably should be. I’m judging myself.
So, I spent my weekend in the usual way: Making food, and watching people make more food, on TV. Please tell me that I am not alone in being the most boring human alive?
And, now that I have confessed my true, not-so-cool cat of a self, and you all are thinking about never coming back, I am going to win your love back with this chicken kebab recipe.
For starters, they’re red. That is THE color of love (according to valentines day) so, there’s that.
Second, there’s the fact that my baby sister (side note: I don’t have one of those) could make this recipe, since it’s SO EASY. Except for the skewering of the meat part. That be dangerous ya’ll.
And, finally, there’s the SURPRISE factor. What is the surprise factor you ask?
Well, the star of this winner winner chicken dinner (had to) is Hunt’s Tomato Paste, which I bet you expected to only ever see in spaghetti and meat balls, am I right?
And now you think I’m even lamer because you’ve used tomato paste in non-spaghetti and meatball recipes, and my plan to earn your love back is foiled. Life is hard.
Side note: Did you know that Hunt’s uses a unique flashsteam peeling method? You should totally check it out here: http://www.hunts.com/the-flashsteam-difference. Maybe we can just call that the surprise factor? Awesome.
Ok, about the chicken. Mr. FFF is obsessed with it. And, so am I. It’s got a little bit of a Middle Eastern vibe, and a little bit of spice, which is PERFECT with that cool, mint yogurt dip.
In fact, it’s so cool that it brings back my “cool factor” since I, you know, made it.
Going with it.
