I'm Chris - or Christopher - or Mr. Dean - or Master Christopher - or just plain Sir. I'm a self-professed foodie. I love to cook and I take great pleasure in all things edible. My husband and I are relatively new to Portland, Oregon and are enjoying our culinary explorations of the area!

Vegetable Skewers

I've been all about the skewers lately. One night last week I marinated some chicken breasts (cut up into 1 1/2" pieces) in lemon, pepper & garlic salt. Those were skewered and became the main dish for dinner. But I wanted something that I could cook alongside the chicken on the grill as a side dish. So I pulled out some vegetables, skewered them, coated them all in olive oil, salt & pepper, and got to grilling.

The mushrooms were quite big and took nearly as long as the peppers and chicken. The tomatoes were delicious, and I slow grilled them on the top rack. And once everything was done, I simply slid them off of the skewers and served the mixed vegetables alongside the chicken. Excellent addition to any meal.
