DIRECTIONS

You will need wooden or metal skewers for this recipe.  You will also need 2 lemons.  The marinade is not fully eaten so the recipe ingredients only show 1 lemon.  You will need both for the marinade.
 
  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.  Soak the wooden skewers in warm water for 30 minutes.  Zest the lemons into a medium bowl. Juice both lemons into the bowl, discarding any seeds.  Finely chop the garlic and add to the bowl.
  2. Peel and cut the red onion in half. Cut only HALF of the onion into 1-inch chunks; set aside.  Remove the stems from the mushroom caps and discard. Set the caps aside. To the lemon and lemon zest, stir in ½ cup of olive oil, ¼ teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of pepper and the red chili flakes; set aside ¼ cup of the marinade for step 4.
  3. Pat dry the chicken breast with paper towels and cut into 2-inch pieces; set aside.  Pat dry the shrimp and set aside. Place the chicken and the shrimp in the zip lock bag.  Pour in the larger portion of the marinade and seal the bag tightly, pressing out any air. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  4. Thread the chicken, shrimp, onion, mushrooms, and cherry tomatoes alternately onto the skewers, dividing all the ingredients equally.  Discard the marinade in the bag, and lightly brush the skewers with the reserved ¼ cup of marinade.
  5. Place the skewers on a sheet pan lined with foil and place in the oven and bake for 12 to 14 minutes until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender.
  6. Serve the skewers on two plates, or remove the ingredients from the skewers and divide all of the ingredients evenly.  Enjoy!

Comment calculer les glucides nets

Avec l’approche nutritionnelle AtkinsMD, le décompte net AtkinsMC est calculé en soustrayant le nombre de grammes de fibres et de polyols (comme la glycérine et les alcools de sucre) du nombre total de grammes de glucides contenu dans les aliments entiers. Ce calcul correspond au concept voulant que les fibres et les polyols ont des répercussions minimales sur le taux de glycémie dans les quantités dans lesquelles on les retrouve dans les produits.
