Did you know that those pre-made chicken kabob at the grocery store have approximately 1/2 chicken breast on it and maybe a couple of chunks of bell pepper and onion for $12 Bucks for 2 Kabobs? I was looking for something to throw on the grill this week and was floored to see the price they put on convenience. Having a growing 15 year old son who can eat 2 kabobs, it sure pays off to make them up myself.
One thing I do is purchase a package of about 8 chicken filets and then freeze them by the 2pks so I can pull out a couple at time. I had just pulled one last night and happened to have a red and green bell pepper in the fridge for salads and I always keep red onion on the counter. All I had to do was soak a few kabob sticks in water for about an hour. I diced up the 2 breasts and made 4 kabobs using only half of each bell pepper. That was a lot less than $12 for 2 - I think it was about $3 for 2 chicken breasts and then $1 for the bell peppers. So that really only cost me $4 for 4 kabobs making it $1 Buck each!
