Are you craving something light yet rich on the taste buds? Try our beautifully marinated chicken skewered with sliced zucchini, served alongside butter-and-herb infused cauliflower rice and a sprinkle of feta cheese.

Let’s face it; there’s a reason eating meat on a stick is an extremely pleasurable experience. Reminiscent of backyard barbecues, food trucks, and al fresco dining, skewers can be customized exactly to your preferences and filled with a variety of delicious meat and vegetables. Plus, the classic way of preparing skewers is to grill them over a flame, which imparts that unmistakable smoky flavor.

In this dish, tender marinated chicken is threaded with zucchini slices, which provide a natural sweetness to the meat. The trick of taking the chicken to the next level is by giving it ample time to incorporate with the marinade. A few hours will do the trick, but if you want it to fully meld with the flavors of lemon, garlic, and all the herbs and spices, leaving it overnight yields the best result.

The chicken and zucchini are elevated even further with a side of fresh cauliflower rice. Unlike regular rice, which can make you feel heavy and bloated after eating, cauliflower rice is low in carbs, high in fiber, and takes on sauces and spices well—in this case, a generous mix of butter and dried herbs. Don’t forget to top the skewers and cauliflower rice with some crumbled feta cheese before serving! The sharp and distinct salty taste of feta will really bring the Mediterranean spirit to this dish.
