About Five-spice Chicken Shish Kebabs Recipe:

As with most things in life, food requires some sort of balances. Sometimes the lack of balance is what makes a culinary masterpiece but sometimes it is the pure order of ingredients that make a dish great. One of these recipes that require balance is chinese five-spice powder. Five-spice is a blend created from chinese cuisine that finds perfect harmony is balancing the five major flavors: sweet, salty, pungent, bitter, and sour.

You'll no longer be thinking about the crazy to-do list you haven't started or all of the chores you've been neglecting all week. You'll be patiently awaiting the minute when the to-die-for-smelling kebobs are cooked so you can dive in. Kebabs are great because it is basically the main entree and side dishes all in one (chicken and vegetables).
