Chicken Skewers with Watermelon & Feta Cheese

This is the perfect summer dish for hot summer evenings! It only includes a few ingredients, its fresh, its rehydrating and its delicious. I love paring watermelon with feta cheese, its such a good combination. Add a few chicken skewers on top and serve with a delicious avocado dressing and you have the perfect healthy and tasty meal.

Make sure to keep an eye on the chicken! Just as a tasty and delicious chicken that melts in your mouth is one of the best things there is, a dry and tasteless chicken is the worst thing you can serve. I’d rather take it off the grill a few minutes too easy, and if its still a bit pink inside I just put it in some aluminium foil and let it rest for 2-3 minutes.
