Nutritional Information



  • 2 corn on the cob
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 bunch of asparagus


  1. Thread chicken, onion cubes, and peppers onto the bamboo skewers.
  2. Place the kebabs on foil and drape with oil, lime/lemon, and seasonings to taste.
  3. While the skewers are marinating, get these veggies ready for grilling:
  4. Corn; Peel the husk back far enough to remove the silk. Place the husk back over the corn and dampen with a little water. Brush with olive oil as it cooks.
  5. Asparagus; Place asparagus on foil with a little olive oil, then transfer foil to grill and cook until crisp tender. Season with garlic powder, black pepper, and a little hot pepper sauce.
  6. Tomatoes; Place tomatoes on foil and sprinkle with a little olive oil. Season with dried Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and black pepper, then place the whole packet on the grill.
  7. Heat the grill to 350-400 degrees F then place the kebabs on the foil on the grill along with the rest of the veggies. Cook until the chicken is almost done, then flip. Take the kebabs off the grill when the chicken is firm and no longer pink in the middle. Cook the corn, asparagus and tomatoes until done. They are usually all ready at the same time.
  8. Make the rice; Make a batch of brown or black forbidden rice according to package directions. A rice cooker makes this process very easy. Plus, if you start the rice along with the grill, everything should be done at the same time.
  9. Plate everything together (this recipe is for 4 portions) and serve.
