I am a newlywed on a budget, just trying to make healthy and inexpensive meals for my husband and I to enjoy. He eats a lot, so cost is a big factor. Though I work 3 jobs, I manage to find time 6 nights a week to cook a full dinner for us both. I am constantly looking for new recipes that are moderately healthy, taste great, and won't break the bank.

On the side, I also own a brownie business called Gersheybars. My passion and love for cooking started when I was just a small child, baking with my mom and grandmother. The brownie recipe has been passed down through 5 generations and I am thrilled to finally have an outlet to share them with everybody else. Friends and family have helped spread the word and made my business as successful as it is today.

Chili Chicken Kebabs

These simple kebabs are easy to make and quick to cook. Marinate the chicken the night before, so all you have to do is broil or grill the kebabs and dinner is ready!


  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 T honey
  • 3 T cider vinegar
  • 1 T oil
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • red pepper, onion, green pepper, tomatoes, or other veggies of your choice

1. Combine chicken and ingredients through garlic, in zip top bag or plastic container. Refrigerate and marinate at least 1 hour, or overnight.

2. Spray broiler rack with nonstick spray; preheat broiler. Thread chicken and veggies on metal skewers. Discard the marinade.

3. Place kebabs on broiler rack and broil 5 inches from the heat until the chicken is browned and cooked through, about 6 minutes on each side. We also served a Mediterranean couscous on the side.
