Prosciutto Chicken Kabobs

Everyone will think you spent hours preparing these clever grilled wraps, served with a guacamole-like dip. Basil gives the chicken a lovely fresh herb flavor. —Elaine Sweet, Dallas, Texas

    I have a mixed review with this one. I did not like the kabobs at all, but the dip was amazing! We used it on tortilla chips.

    I could not find the 5 cheese italain dressing (hence 4 stars), so I just used regular dressing. These were so tasty . I loved dipping these in the avocado sauce. Yummy!
