Chicken Kabobs and Chopped Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Sunday we had a fun day at our friend’s new house.   Didn’t have much time to do much food prep so we picked up some Chicken Kabobs at Wegmans.

However, I did manage to find the best homemade balsamic vinaigrette recipe that I will definitely be using exclusively moving forward.   I’m a huge fan of balsamic dressing, especially the kind you can typically find at a good restaurant.   Store bought brands just can never compare.

I’ll break down the individual components of the meal below

Chicken Kabobs:

Purchased both the brown sugar and honey mustard chicken kebobs from Wegmans, grilled over direct heat (~450 degrees) for ~2 minutes on all 4 sides (chicken was cube shaped) then cooked off-center (not direct heat) for a few minutes more.

Balsamic Vinaigrette:
