Caribbean-Spiced Chicken KebabsRecipe

You can make this super spicy with hot pepper sauce or omit it altogether and enjoy the milder spices of the Caribbean that are totally kid friendly. If you use wooden skewers, make sure to soak them in water first, or you’ll set them on fire. Serve with some Greek yogurt and chopped cilantro as a dipping sauce, if desired.

Kids Can Help: Another way to get kids excited about cooking is to let them in the spice cabinet! Spices like ginger, cinnamon, and cloves all smell wonderful. Kids can measure the spices for you before sprinkling them into the food processor.
