Kebabs and Pirates

Tonight I made chicken kebabs, grilled corn, and a vegetable salad. My brother is doing so well in trying to be more healthy, so I figured a healthy meal was in order. We hung out and watched Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. It was definitely a quiet, relaxing evening!

Chicken Kebabs with Grilled Corn:
1.5 lbs. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in 2-inch pieces
2 Cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp. Fresh thyme
2 tbsp. Olive oil
~ Salt and black pepper
4 Ears corn, husks removed
8- 6 inch Skewers, soaked in water

Heat grill to medium-high. In a bowl, toss the chicken, garlic, thyme, 1 tbsp. of the oil, and 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper. Thread the chicken on the skewers. Grill the chicken and corn, turning occasionally, until chicken is cooked through and the corn is charred, 7 to 10 minutes for both. This is ideal for a gas or charcoal grill, but I was able to make my George Foreman suffice. The corn was a little difficult in my little GFG, but it wasn't too bad.

Vegetable Salad:
~ Cherry or grape tomatoes
~ Cucumber
~ Onion
~ Italian or Balsamic dressing (your choice)

Slice tomatoes in half, cut cucumbers in chunks, chop onions. Mix together with dressing and refrigerate.
