20 Minute Paleo Meals: Marjoram Chicken Skewers
 Marjoram Chicken Skewers

This quick and easy meal will please both kids and grown-ups. Chicken is marinated in a tasty mixture of marjoram, tomato and garlic and served with a side of green salad and broccoli. I used chicken tenderloins because the meat is very succulent and soft but chicken breast or pork can also be used.
