Summer Recipe + Dinner For A One Year Old
I have summer & grilling on my mind! If you are anything like me and love mangos then you will love this kabob recipe. I have been totally obsessed with mangos recently and have been searching recipes to try. I found this one at beachbody.com and I didn’t really change a thing ( normally I change recipes ) We paired this with brown rice and Brody ( who is one ) love it!
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice
- 1 Tbsp . olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic , finely chopped
- 2 tsp . chili powder
- ½ tsp . sea salt – I use pink Himalayan
- ¼ tsp . cayenne pepper
- 1 lb . raw chicken breast , boneless, skinless, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 tsp . raw honey
- 2 medium mangos , peeled, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 medium yellow bell pepper , cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 medium orange bell pepper , cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 medium red onions (or sweet onion), cut into 1-inch cubes
First you will make the marinade by combining the lime juice, oil, garlic, chili powder, salt, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl; whisk to blend. Set aside.
Add your chicken to a dish and pour half of the marinade over the top; toss gently to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes to 4 hours.
Next you will stir honey into remaining marinade. Set aside.
Time to make the kabob’s. Place a piece of chicken, mango, bell pepper, and onion onto a skewer. Repeat twice, so the skewer has three pieces of each ingredient. Repeat with seven remaining skewers. Discard marinade that contained chicken.
Brush skewers with reserved honey marinade mixture. Grill or broil skewers for 6 to 8 minutes, turning every 2 minutes and brushing with honey marinade, or until mango is softened and chicken is no longer pink in the middle.
Most nights Brody eats something very similar to us . On the nights we have soup I make him something different only because he hasn’t quite figured out how to use a spoon.
I don’t buy him food that I wouldn’t eat , like lots of those kid specific chicken nuggets and gross microwave pizzas!!! ( I mean ellios taste so good but I don’t buy it!!!) I do buy the frozen chicken fingers from Trader Joes ( we love those! ) and frozen sweat potato fries. I believe TJ has some dino nuggets that aren’t terrible we just haven’t tried them yet!
Shaws sells these broccoli / cheese tots that Brody loves . He would eat the whole bag if he could. I try to give him veggies every night, he gets a lot of our left overs. Anything roasted he loves . He ate all of this and then threw his plate at me!
