Good lord! The Super Bowl is just one day a year! Can’t we have something delicious and greasy?!? The Super Bowl is one of the biggest calorie-fests for American football fans. Here are some ideas for a healthy spread with just a touch of fat!

Moist, tender chicken kebabs are low in fat and make an excellent appetizer, or light lunch. Serve it with some cucumbers and ranch, yum!

What you need: Makes 4 full skewers

2 lb boneless chicken breasts cut into 2 inch pieces

For the marinate:

1 tsp ginger garlic paste

1/2 tsp cumin powder

1 tsp white pepper powder

A handful of fresh cilantro leaves

6 to 8 green hot chilies, more or less as your taste buds can take

1/4 cup yogurt

4 tsp lime juice

Salt to taste

Bamboo skewers

Colored peppers, onions and tomatoes cut into large chunks

In a blender, make a fine paste of the marinating ingredients. Massage it into the chicken pieces and let it chill for about half an hour in a sealed plastic bag. If you can do this the previous night, it will taste great.

Soak the bamboo skewers in water for about 30 minutes. Poke the marinated chicken pieces into skewers, alternating it with colored peppers, onions and tomatoes. Brush some light cooking oil or spray some cooking oil on them.

Place on a greased tray if you are going to use the oven. Broil them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes at 400 degree F. Turn them half way, so both sides are lightly browned.

An open grill tastes the best, place the skewers on a preheated grill for 8-10 minutes, turning frequently, until cooked through and lightly browned. Squeeze some fresh lime juice just before they are served.

Prepare a platter with ranch sauce or just yogurt dip, some raw onion rings and cucumbers. Enjoy!
