Shrimp and Chicken Kabobs with Rice

1/2 lb of medium to large size shrimp shelled and cleaned
1 lb of chicken breasts cut into cubes
1 quart size package of Cherry Tomatoes
1 large green bell pepper cut in large slices, then in half
1 large red bell pepper cut in large slices, then in half
1 large yellow pepper cut in large slices , then in half
1 package of white pearl onions

Skewers ( if using wood skewers, soak in water before using)
Build your Kabobs alternating meats, veggies, etc.
At this point you can either marinate them, or just before placing on a grill,
baste with your favorite marinade, or to keep this dish light, use a light
Italian dressing as your baste/marinade.
Place Kabobs on a preheated grill, (indoor or outdoor) turning to be sure everything gets done ,
usually 3 minutes on each side depending on how thick your chicken cubes are.

Serve over your favorite rice. This is a favorite summer time meal, its quick easy, and light.
And best of all, it's a dish that can be prepared ahead of time, and when you get home from work, just turn on the grill.
