Low Carb Chicken Souvlaki Skewers


I am never happier than when it’s grilling season. Fresh foods cooked over an open flame make live easier and more delicious. And these easy Chicken Souvlaki skewers are no exception. Marinate the chicken for a few hours or even overnight, then thread onto skewers and in less than 10 minutes, you’ve got dinner!
