Family-Friendly Chicken Kabobs

Kabobs are a healthy, delicious meal that can be shared with the entire family. Chicken in particular is a highly digestible protein for your pup, which is rich in niacin (promoting a healthy cholesterol and heart) and selenium. It is paired with bell peppers to provide your dog with some immune strengthening vitamin C and zucchini which is super low in calories.

  • 1 cup dry brown rice
  • 3 inch chicken breasts cut into cubes
  • 1 inch red bell pepper cut into cubes
  • 1 inch yellow bell pepper cut into cubes

  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • lemon juice optional

Instructions
 

  • Cook the brown rice according to package directions.
  • Soak the bamboo sticks for at least an hour in warm water (to prevent burning on the grill).
  • Assemble the kabobs starting with zucchini, pepper and chicken. Aim to get four pieces of chicken on each kabob and end with a bell pepper followed by a zucchini.
  • Marinate in the grapeseed oil and oregano for at least 30 minutes.
