Chicken Kebabs cooking on the grill

Recipe: Tex-Mex Chicken Kebabs

This is one of my favorite recipes; it’s simple, chock-full of protein and loaded with flavor. All you need are chicken breast tenders, a few spices and a grill, or grill pan for the stove top. Because breast tenders are so thin, you don’t even need to cut them, just thread them on a wooden skewer and they are ready to go.
