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!

 

What Is Chicken Piccata?

Meat of fish is cut into chunks or slices and sauteed.

It is usually served with a sauce containing lemon juice, butter, and capers.

 

What Is Brochettes?

Brochettes is skewers of meat or meat and vegetables or fruit.

 

Do Skewers Have To Be Soaked Before Used In Grilling?

Wooden skewers burn easily on a grill, or even in an oven.

So soaking them in water for 15-20 minutes before threading them with food, will prevent the skewers from burning.
