We grill out almost exclusively in the summertime, simply because it’s too hot to do much of anything else.
And it’s still only the beginning of July.
If you’re like me, you get tired of the same old meats and veggies thrown over the open flame–and by the time dinner time rolls around, I’m usually too hot and tired to do very much kitchen prep.
Which is why I love quick and simple marinades–you can mix ’em up in less than five minutes early in the day, and all you have to do at dinner time is throw stuff on the grill. This is hands-down my favorite kind of cooking and everyone in my family loves this recipe. So fire up that grill and enjoy.
If you're using bamboo skewers, soak your sticks in water for at least 5 minutes. Cut chicken into large chunks, and skewer. Allow to marinate for at least 1 hour.
