These Tuscan grilled chicken kabobs are so easy and we eat them all summer long. Bright, fresh colors and fresh flavors for dinner tonight!
Can You Cook Kabobs on the Stove?
You can cook these using outdoor grill or pan-grill on the stove, if don’t have an outdoor grill.
To cook these kababs on the stove, heat the grill pan to medium.
Cook the skewers for about 6-7 minutes per side, depending on how large the chicken pieces are.
Kabobs or skewers? I call them kabobs but I’ve noticed a lot of people say skewers. It really doesn’t matter, but these Tuscan grilled chicken kabobs do matter. And speaking of things that matter…
Frozen. The Little Mermaid. Brave. Let’s just chat about those. Oh, you think you’re too old for Disney movie talk? Well sit back and relax because I have a lot to say about things that matter and don’t matter. Have you heard everyone picking apart Disney movies and the secret messages that they carry? Listen, whether they do carry secret messages or not, IT. DOESN’T. MATTER. So many people were so worried about Frozen being about Gay marriage (let it be known I don’t think that’s what it’s about) that I think they missed two of the most important messages. Why don’t I tell you? 1. Fear isolates and destroys, love saves and can do anything. 2. Joy. It’s a feel good, cute, catchy songs movie. Can’t you just sit back and enjoy it instead of picking it apart?
The Little Mermaid. Oh boy, this one is hypocritical because my mom is the one that as a little girl told me she didn’t love the movie because she felt like Ariel was a bit selfish. She does sing about wanting more, disobeying her father, choosing to trap herself in an unsafe contract and then choosing to break the rules that her dad made to keep her safe. Now I used to argue that maybe Ariel’s dad was stuck in the darkness and Ariel could see the better life and while she was a tad selfish with never being satisfied with what she had, maybe wanting more was just reaching for more light, knowledge and a better life. In the end though, we just agreed to sit back and enjoy the movie. It’s still one of my favorites because in the end, IT. DOESN’T. MATTER.
Brave. Ugh, I got so tired of this one. In fact, I couldn’t move past what everyone was saying and never ended up loving the movie. Do you remember the push? Girls and women do not need men. Women can save the world and be everything without a man as her happy ending. Gah. I’m tired of this messaging. I think it runs from selfishness and fear. I do need my husband. He’s wonderful, he makes me strive to be better, he helps me be more balanced, he supports each member of the family in different ways but most importantly he offers something to our children I cannot. Men and women are different, but that’s not a bad thing! Our hands are not exactly the same, the are opposites which allows us to perform many things and that’s exactly how men and women should be. No one is perfect, but we should be complimenting each other in our lives instead of competing. We need each other and that doesn’t not make us weak, it makes us stronger.
