Chicken Piccata Brochettes



We had these Chicken Piccata Brochettes at my girlfriend’s wedding last summer and they are still a favorite of mine. They are flavorful and so simple which is exactly what I needed on such a busy warm day. You can start prepping these in the morning and then let them marinate throughout the day which is great for when you have a lot going on in the evening. It’s always a plus when you are crazy busy that you can still pull together a healthy and tasty meal for your family. Plus, don’t you just feel like you eat a little less and enjoy it a little more when it’s on a skewer?
Make these this week and let me know if you love them too!
