“Now that summer has arrived I figured why not start grilling! So I came up this new dish that is quick and easy, but also healthy and delicious at the same time. The hummus-yogurt dip can also be used as a healthy dip for vegetables too!”
2 skewers each

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make the grilled chicken skewers: Soak 8 (or more if needed) thin wooden skewers in water. Moisten the chicken with olive oil and season to taste. Thread the chicken fillets onto the skewers and grill on a hot stovetop cast-iron skillet, turning around to cook all sides.
  2. For dipping sauce: mix hummus, yogurt and salt together in bowl.
  3. To serve: Arrange the grilled chicken skewers on a platter or over bed of rice, alongside a bowl of the sauce, and lemon wedges on the side (optional).
  4. For the rice pilaf:
  5. Place the rice in a fine-mesh strainer and rinse under cold water until the water runs clear; set aside.
  6. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, season with salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes.
  7. Add the rinsed rice and cook, stirring occasionally, until the kernels crackle, about 2 minutes. Add the broth, water, and measured salt and stir to combine. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil.
  8. Reduce the heat to low, cover with a tight fitting lid, and simmer undisturbed until the rice is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit covered to steam, about 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and stir in the parsley. Taste and season with additional salt as needed.
