Lemon Chicken Skewers

Oh hey there! I'm glad you could stop by to enjoy these beautiful lemon chicken skewers. I made them last week after picking an abundance of lemons from our tree. I was trying to think up all sorts of ways to use them. I have a few other ideas, but this was the first thing that came to mine. I'm all about my barbecue right now. It's been insanely hot the past week. One day we hit 106F! So rather than heat up the house I just go outside and light up the grill. Plus the barbecue really does make everything taste better. 

It's like a rainbow with the red, yellow and orange mini peppers, onions and fresh parsley. I love it! If you're having a summer barbecue you should definitely make these. Everyone will love how pretty they are. And how delicious they are too of course!

I served them with cauliflower rice and I added in a little chopped parsley and lemon juice. I needed to use my lemons!
