These Oriental-flavored grilled kabobs, served with a yummy dipping sauce. Your guests and family will rave! Mix it up and add the veggie of your choice or substitute salmon for chicken. I like the red bell pepper and onions the best. I lowered the fat by using light mayo. Make sauce 2-4 hours ahead of time and marinate chicken 2 hours.

This was so simple & absolutely de-lish!! I wasn't going to make the dipping sauce, but decided to anyway. WOW! Am I glad I did! My picky eaters RAVED about it! They even cleaned up their veggies with it! Thank you for posting this one!
I tossed frozen (uncut) chicken breasts in the marinade one morning with plans to have this for dinner that night. Life got in the way, and it was the next night before we had time to make this for dinner. However, I was called out to work at the last minute, and Hubby actually grilled the kabobs. There was nothing left when I returned. He cleaned the plate and loved the dipping sauce. I guess that even though I didn't get to sample these, that makes them a winner.
Tasted great! Quick and easy, great meal for a busy night. I served this with jasmine coconut rice and a mixed fruit salad.
