When the warmer starts showing itself, grilling is one thing that I highly enjoy. From hot dogs to brats and ribeyes, chicken to shrimp, you name it and I love grilling it. Can’t forget burgers too right?!
For these Lemon Honey and Rosemary Grilled Chicken Skewers I have taken a couple chicken breasts, sliced them up into chunks and marinated them for a at least 30 minutes. Fresh lemon juice, a splash of honey (can you have a “splash” of honey even?) and fresh rosemary… delicious and flavorful! Not to mention it only takes a few minutes on each side and these babies are done! It takes my grill longer to get hot than it takes these babies too cook.
So if you’re looking for something that’s packed with flavor and ready in no time… give these skewers a shot! Everyone here loved them… My nephew gave me a good laugh though.
This is what he said…
“Lauren, these things are good whatever they are… even if they have grass on them.”
Ohh I had too laugh at him… he was referring to the rosemary as “grass”. Silly kid!
