Zesty Chicken and Mango Skewers

SWEET AND SAVORY GOODNESS ON A STICK

 

Hot weather and Summer vibes calls for endless grilling all season long. It’s time to take a quick break from the burgers and hot dogs and grab a bamboo stick instead! Who doesn’t love food on a stick? Fresh mango pairs extremely well with proteins like fish and poultry, allowing the sweet, sharp flavor of the fruit to give the protein an extra kick. This is a great way to get some of your fruit and vegetable servings in for the day. Grab a skewer and add it to your whole grain dish. Enjoy!
