Hey There, I also first seen this recipe in the People Magazine. I made this, along with the vegetable salad recipe. Fabulous! I always have requests for these chicken kabobs from the neighbors and the husband. They all say it was the best flavor ever! They are so moist you never have to dip them in anything! Thanks so much!

I haven't tried this recipe yet (actually saw it first in "People Magazine") but would like to know the Nutrional Values, but more importantly, the sodium, sugar, carbs, calories etc. I have noticed that none of your recipes contain this pertinent information. I am anxious to try it but need the important info. Thanks and keep up the good work!

Does anyone have a sauce they can dip the chicken kabobs in? I'm making them tonight. No pressure. Thanks Lisa

I made these for family and friends as party of a Saturday night grilling extravaganza. These chicken kabobs got rave reviews. They were everyone's favorite -- even better than the ribeyes!
