  • Difficulty Easy
  • Time 30 minutes
a plate of chicken skewers with a jar of spice, a beer, naan bread and tzatziki sauce

Fire up the bbq and make these Summer BBQ Chicken Skewers ASAP. 3 ingredients in a zip top bag and you are in business. We served them with store-bought tzatziki sauce, grilled naan, mango avocado relish, and fresh squeezed lime. The entire dish screams warm summer evening on the deck with a frosty cold beer. You could add vegetables like zucchini, bell pepper, mushrooms or onions to the skewers as well. We partnered with New Belgium Brewing Co to make this incredibly flavorful spice blend that has garlic, smoked paprika, red pepper flake, dried onion, and a touch of brown sugar.
