It's Spring!

The BBQ is out and it is officially spring. That means: Things on sticks! Starting to get sick of 'grilled chicken' ie just chicken...on a grill... I decided it was time to mix it up.

Lemon Rosemary Chicken Skewers
  • 1 chicken breast per person
  • 1 small bunch of fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • 1/8 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
Mix all the ingredients except the chicken and the oil in a small bowl. Chop the chicken into skewer size chunks. Very SLOWLY while whisking, add the oil into the lemon-mix until thick and it tastes how you like it. Toss the sauce with the chicken and leave it to marinate for 30 minutes. While this is going on, it is best to soak the skewers in water. This will help keep the wood from burning or worse, catching on fire. After the 30 minutes are up, skewer the chicken and put on the grill until crispy on the sides, firm to the touch and well, the chicken is done.

This sauce and also be poured on a whole chicken breast, marinated and baked. It goes fantastically with spring veggies like asparagus, pea sprouts, or corn on the cob for a hands on meal.
