Glazed Chicken Shish Kabobs

shish kebobsThe eggplants in this box were bigger than we had been getting in our harvest boxes this year. My husband and I are not big eggplant fans, so I was a bit anxious about how I was going to handle them. I found this recipe on Cooks.com for shish kabobs, and decided to give it a go. The consistency of the eggplant was good, and the glaze made everything taste sweet. They turned out great!
