Chicken “Kebabs” and Nectarine Salsa

This is a perfect meal to prep ahead of time and then get a meal to the table quickly after a busy day.  Oh, and this was a delicious dinner.  I had the chicken pieces marinate all day and made the salsa beforehand.  When I got home I broiled the chicken, made the cous cous and served dinner within minutes.

“Kebabs” is in quotes because I see no reason to take time to skewer kebabs when it’s just dinner for our family.  If I needed them at a party or to transport them, fine I get it and I would take the time.  For our family, they just were laid out in a single layer on a pan to be broiled in the oven.
