Hi everyone!

Today's recipe is super easy, very healthy and beyond delicious! I just made this yesterday and I had to upload it right away! I have like 8 more recipes in line to be edited, but this one couldn't wait! I hope you like it as much as I did!

Makes 8 skewers
Ingredients:

2 large chicken breasts
18 medium-large mushrooms (any kind)
18 grape tomatoes (or any other small tomato)
1/2 a large onion cut in chunks
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
2tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
2 garlic cloves finely chopped
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
crushed red pepper to taste
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
wooden skewers (8)

Preparation:

Soak wooden skewers in warm water for at least 20 minutes before using.
Preheat oven to 400ºF.

Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces. Season the chicken with the zest of one lemon
1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary,the chopped garlic, 1/2 tablespoon ground black pepper, 1/2 tablespoon salt, the lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of extra Virgin Olive oil. Add crushed red pepper to taste. Combine everything, make sure every piece of chicken is well seasoned and refrigerate for about 5 minutes while we prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Season the tomatoes and onions with 1/2 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt and ground black pepper, also add crushed red pepper to taste. Stir together and set aside for a minute.

Clean the mushrooms with a wet paper towel or a clean wet kitchen towel. Season the mushrooms with 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and the rest of the rosemary, also add in a 1/4 of a tablespoon of each, salt and ground black pepper. Add crushed red pepper if desired. Make sure every mushroom is well coated with the oil and the seasoning.

And that's all the preparation work. Now we are ready to build the Kebabs.  Build your kebabs any way you want them.

My Kebab has 9 layers, the first one is onions, followed by a mushroom, a piece of chicken, a tomato, another piece of chicken, one more mushroom, more onion, another piece of chicken and finally topped with another tomato.

But feel free to build your Kebab any way you want, you can add as many layers as you like!

Bake at 400ºF for 12-15 minutes or until the chicken is completely cooked!
or

Grill for about 3-4 minutes on each side!

I served my Kebabs over white rice! And that's it, enjoy!
