Good morning lovelies! I hope everyone had a fab evening and is off to a good Wednesday.
Last night Mr. Delish and I had my birthday dinner at a place called Stonegrill. It is sitting right on False creek and on Granville Island so it has amazing views. We went for a fairly late dinner by the time we both got home from work, so we got to see an amazing sunset. I’ll tell you more about our dinner in another post.
The other night we were getting ready for dinner and since it was smoking hot here all day, we decided we wanted to make something light and healthy for dinner and we definitely didn’t want to turn on the stove to make anything. We decided to make these chicken skewers and they totally hit the spot!
Best of all? They were super easy to make! I started of by chopping up some boneless skinless chicken breasts into cubes and then threw them in a ziplock bag with some lemon juice, mustard, honey, olive oil and salt and pepper. Let it marinate for a few hours, stick them on some skewers and grill them up!
So easy and delicious. These would be great as an appetizer as well although we had it for our main course.
I also made a yummy salad to go with it and some grilled zucchini, I’ll share the recipe for the salad tomorrow so make sure you check back!
I wanna know….
What is your favorite go to summer meal?
Where was the last restaurant you went to and how was it?
Hope everyone has a great night! Oh ya, make these skewers, you won’t be sorry!
Lemony Honey Mustard Chicken Skewers:
Makes 4 skewers
4 metal skewers or 4 wooden skewers that have been soaked in water for a few hours
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed
Juice of two lemons
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tbsp whole grain dijon mustard
2 tbsp honey
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tbsp minced chives
In a large ziplock bag, add all the ingredients except for the chives, zip the bag closed and then squish the chicken around to mix in the marinade. Refrigerate for 1-3 hours.
When you are ready to cook, skewer the pieces of chicken evenly on the 4 skewers.
Heat up your grill to around 400 degrees and then grill your chicken evenly on all sides until they have nice char marks and are cooked through, about 10-12 minutes.
Either leave the chicken on the skewers or remove it to a dish, garnish with the minced chives and enjoy!
