1/3 cup oil
2 Tbsp lime juice
1/2 tsp lime zest
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 1/2 tsp fresh oregano
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

Chicken - cut into chunks
Veggies - cut into chunks

Place cut chicken & veggies onto skewers. Cover with marinate. Marinate for several hours. Grill.

Karen's notes: Sorry for the picture of the "raw" ka-bobs...forgot to take one after Ben cooked them!! I like to use separate skewers instead of "layering" the meat and veggies. I thread all the skewers, place in a 11x14 glass dish, pour the marinade on and occasionally brush the ka-bobs throughout the day ... basically every time I open the fridge :)

Easy Spanish Rice

by Kim
2 Tbsp oil
2 Tbsp chopped onion (I just used dried)
1 1/2 cup uncooked rice
2 cups chicken broth (I used 1 can plus 1/2 cup water)
1 cup salsa

Brown onion in oil. Add rice. Stir often until the rice starts to brown. Add chicken broth and salsa, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover and simmer for 20 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed.
Makes 5 servings

*I added drained and rinsed black beans after it was cooked and reheated until the beans were warm. You could even add a can of drained corn to this. It was very good. I 3 times it and it made a ton!
