  • 1 pound fresh chicken breast, cubed
  • 1 cup packed cilantro leaves, plus extra for serving
  • ¼ cup lime juice, about 2 limes

  • 3 scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 red onion, cut into wedges
  • 2 bell peppers, quartered, seeds removed
  • 1 ripe avocado, halved, seeded and peeled
  • 1½ teaspoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon ground coriander
  • ¼ cup fat-free Greek Yogurt
  • ½ cup water

Divide the remaining cilantro puree evenly between the chicken and the peppers and onions.

Toss well to coat the chicken and vegetables and let stand, at room temperature, for 30 minutes.

To the blender, add the avocado, ½ cup water, and the reserved 2 tablespoons cilantro sauce to the blender. Puree until smooth and season with salt. Set aside.

Heat the oil in a small skillet set over medium heat until hot. Add the cumin and coriander and continue to cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour the spices over the yogurt and set aside for the flavors to blend.

Reserving a bit for serving, divide yogurt mixture between the two marinating bowls of veggies and chicken marinate and mix. Marinate another 30 minutes.

Once vegetables and chicken have marinated, skewer them in alternating between veggies and chicken, and grill, basting with lime juice. Drizzle with reserved sauce and serve.

That's about the most definitive positive across the board that I've ever seen. You're way positive on every one. Keep eating gluten every single day until the endoscopy! You don't have to eat a ton, 1 or 2 slices of gluten bread per day will do it. Orrrrrrrrrrr you could take this time to pig ou...
