A bright and tangy recipe to warm up your grilling muscles in time for BBQ Season. Fresh and herby with a kick of spice, this easy recipe is a simple crowd-pleaser at any cookout. You can dress these skewers up in your choice of tangy lemon or lime- we recommend lime if you’re planning to make them on the spicy side, because lime is a great compliment to spice.
Skewers are a great go-to classic on the grill because they’re so simple to nail down. Just pop your favourite mix of meat and veggies on a stick, and let the smoke infuse in there for that unmistakable BBQ taste. The chunks on skewers are nice and small, too, which means they cook up quickly as the perfect BBQ snack whilst everyone waits on the main dishes like burgers and sausages.
This recipe comes with a few extra steps to take this beginner’s classic to the next level with a simple lemon marinade the night before. It’s not often you have an unplanned BBQ, so it never hurts to spend 15 minutes the night before to give your chicken skewers the upgrade they deserve.
This recipe comes from BBQ Tips UK, and one piece of advice they offer for skewers is to use two sticks instead of one! That way, when you turn them over, the meat doesn’t just spin in place. The less time you spend fiddling with the skewers, the less risk you have of getting burned. If you’re using bamboo skewers, make sure to soak them in cold water beforehand so they don’t get dried out and burn on the grill.
Let’s get stuck into it! We’re starving!
