Honey Rosemary Chicken Kabobs
Light & Tasty

"These tender kabobs are full of savory rosemary flavor yet they're low in fat and sodium," says Elisabeth Corcimiglia of Byron, New York. "I found the original recipe in a magazine but adjusted it to better suit the tastes in my household."

Ingredients:
1/3 cup honey
