Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup honey mustard, plus more for serving
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 1/4 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts and/or thighs, cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 pound button mushrooms
  • 1 large eggplant, cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks
  • 2 bunches green onions, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 red bell peppers, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 (6-ounce) packages rice pilaf mix, prepared according to package directions

Directions

If you're using wooden skewers, soak them in water 20 to 30 minutes. Preheat grill to medium heat. In a small bowl, whisk together mustard, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper. Thread chicken, mushrooms, eggplant, onions and peppers onto skewers; brush all over with mustard mixture. Grill, turning occasionally, until chicken is cooked and vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Arrange skewers on a platter over the rice pilaf and serve with honey mustard on the side for dipping.

Honey Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Honey Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
