Greek Chicken Kabob with Avocado Tzatziki Dip

GreekChickenKabobDip

I needed something light and carb free tonight. My recipes lately have been a little “heavy” on the calorie side. I have been walking a 70+lb dog at least 2x per day which has helped with the waist line… BUT, I do need to make sure that not ALL of my meals have carbs and butter! 🙂

So, Here is my “Lighter” dinner…

Ingredients:

Chicken:

10-12 chicken tenderloins
zest and juice of 1 lemon
salt and pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. 21 Seasoning Salute (or Mrs. Dash)
Fresh Rosemary chopped fine

Stir all non-chicken ingredients in a large glass bowl. Take the tenderloins and  toss in the marinade and let marinate for at least 30 minutes in the fridge. Then, cut in half length-wise and place onto skewers. Grill for approximately 3-4 min per side. (on a HOT grill)

Avocado Tzatziki Dipping Sauce!

3/4 cup low fat greek yogurt
juice of 1/2 of a lemon
zest of 1 lemon
salt and pepper
1/2 of ripe avocado
1/8 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. 21 Seasoning Salute (Trader Joes) it’s like Mrs. Dash
1/2 tsp. Texas Pete Pepper Sauce (or tabasco or similar)
grated cucumber (about 2 TB worth) and finely chopped cucumber… about 2 TB worth
2 TB finely diced sweet onion

Stir together and refrigerate until ready to eat.

I served this with a simple spinach salad with homemade vinaigrette. It was light and filling!! My favorite part had to be that dipping sauce though!! DELISH! Very summery and savory.

Enjoy!
