Moroccan Chicken Kebobs – ★★★★★

ImagePerry is sitting here as I write trying to explain to me that his 10 minutes of involvement with this recipe made it a five star recipe. While I’ll never admit it to him he may be right I’ll secretly tell you all since he never reads the description. Cooking these babies to perfection is key. Perry nailed it with his 5 minutes per side on our dinky little grille. How did I survive before him 🙂 The chicken is fantastic with the perfect balance of savory and sweet. The veggies were perfectly salted and had the best tender/crisp texture. Even my picky three-year-old grabbed a skewer or two and went to town. Perry gave these five stars and here is why:

“These tasty morsels were cooked to perfection by me deeming them worthy of five stars. For the sake of my marriage I guess I better give Kelsey some credit by saying she did an exceptional job marinating the chicken and vegetable with exotic and authentic african spices. (can you tell he is fishing for brownie points?)”
