Kababs make a great grilled dinner. Especially if you're entertaining. Here's how you can build a better kabab. First you want to start with the right cut of meat. And we love to use boneless chicken thighs. They're inexpensive, and they're dark meat. So they're super flavorful and nearly impossible to over cook. Also,. When the butcher debones the chicken thigh it leaves all these little nooks and crannies that trap marinade to make them super flavorful. The second step to building a better kabob is choosing the right kind of skewer. You wanna choose a skewer that's flat, because it will prevent the vegetables and meat from twirling around when you're cooking and then when you're eating the kabobs. And the third tip for building a better kebab is to keep your meat and vegetables separate. I know it's tempting to thread them together because they're so pretty, but they really have very different cook times, so this is the only way to ensure that they're both perfectly cooked. When you're ready to serve dinner, you can take your pretty vegetable kebabs. And plate them along side your chicken kabobs, and you'll have a beautiful platter that's ready to party.
