Oh my goodness, you guys, GAME CHANGER right here.

Busy moms? I’m right there with you. Yes, I love love love to cook, but I’m not always so excited at spending a ton of time making dinner every night.  This is a recipe I love for chicken skewers on the bbq.. but I’ve modified it to be super easy. You can cook a big batch all at once in the oven.

Plop this onto a bed of greens or rice, and you’ve got a super quick and easy YUMMY dinner. boom.  Do my kids eat it? Well, all they’re happy with right now is fruit and bread, so that answers your question.
