Quick and flavorful maple Dijon chicken kabob recipe from @bakedbyrachel

Let’s all agree that dinner is basically the best meal of the day. I know many would say no, it’s clearly breakfast. But hear me out…

You can have just about anything for dinner, including breakfast. You can eat it early or late, hot or cold, with or without dessert… or even dessert for dinner if you really want. No judging, I totally do it sometimes too. Dinner leftovers are typically way better than breakfast leftovers. Case in point – pizza! You can eat pizza reheated or cold and at any time during the day.

So, dinner wins.

Also, chicken wins. It’s by far my favorite meat and I always love a really good and simple chicken dinner.

I’m a sucker for kabobs. So, when I saw that Julie had recreated her holy yum chicken recipe, for her new cookbook Dinner for Two, I knew I had to try them. I love all things maple and mustard, but I’d never combined them… until now. And let me tell you, there is no going back. If you love these flavors alone, you’re going to love them together.

I put a simple twist on her recipe, primarily because my rosemary quickly went bad and I really wanted to grill the day I whipped these up. But, Julie offers a great baked version in her book that you should definitely check out!

These quick and flavorful maple Dijon chicken kabobs should definitely be on your dinner menu! They’re so simple making them perfect for any night of the week!

    I love maple and mustard together! I am sure these are the best! I am with you about dinner. And because of the fact that it is the only meal where I sit and relax and get to be with my family. Usually I am too busy to notice the other meals.

    • Rachel — November 19th, 2015 @ 7:31 am

      Yes so many more great points!

    We have breakfast for dinner a lot around here mostly when the fridge is empty because I nearly always have eggs on hand….PROTEIN. lol. So these kabobbies look delicious, the marinade reminds me of my favorite maple mustard I love on turkey sandwiches….yum!
