1 lemon dill chicken kebobs and roasted carrots

This is our very favorite meal to eat right now, and it's so healthy and low in calories!! And bonus...all three kids loved both of these, it was a hit! :)

Lemon Dill Chicken Kebobs

8 chicken tenders (we like the ones from Costco)
1/3 c. lemon juice
2-3 sprigs of fresh dill
salt and pepper to taste

Soak 8 skewers in water. You want them to soak for at least 15 min. so if you start that first, you'll be good to go when you're ready to bake. Cut up each chicken tender into 4 different sections and put them all in a bowl. Pour lemon juice over the top and mix together with your hands. Let sit for 5 min. Mince up your dill, then sprinkle over the chicken. Add salt and pepper (we love pepper, so we add a good amount). Mix again together with your hands. Let sit for 5 min. Skewer 4 pieces of chicken for each kebob and set aside. We like to grill on our indoor panini grill, but you could grill outside or even bake in your oven. We grill ours inside at 350 for about 4 min. (since it cooks both sides at the same time)

Serves: 4

Roasted Carrots

5 fresh medium sized carrots
pam cooking spray (or similar)
dried oregano
salt and pepper

Peel your carrots and cut them into two-three inch sections and either half or quarter each one of you have a bunch of little fry looking carrot sticks. Add them to a bowl and spray a few times with the pam so the oregano, salt and pepper will stick. Season to taste. Lay on a pan and roast in the oven at 425 for 20 min. rotating once halfway through.
