Summatime and the grillin’s easy! 😉 We make a chicken dish at least 4x’s a week for our families and this delicious Chipotle Lime Chicken Skewers recipe is a way to break up the mundane menu and also gets the kids involved; they love to assemble the ingredients on the skewers and we love to grill. Win win!
Using fresh chicken from the butcher + our aaahmazing STOK grill, we made this meal lickity split! With our kabob insert, the grilling process was seriously simple and was cooked through with those pretty charred grill lines in less than 10 minutes. Try this recipe for yourself!
