The weather is FINALLY starting to get nice which means it’s the start of the BBQ season![Tag me on Instagram, @philiakelnhofer if you fure up the frill and make these 5 ingredient citrus chicken skewers!”]
he dreary weather really seemed to stretch out forever this year, didn’t it? Here in Wisconsin it really threw us for a loop. It snowed in April and had us all worried that we would never see the sunshine and warmer weather. It’s as if my body was craving a little warmth and heat.
And what better way to experience that than with a dish that has summertime flavors?
Wanting something that would remind me of bright and bold flavors, I checked to see what all I had on hand and headed over to my tiny pantry (typical of when I do a Five-Ingredient Friday post).
I’m not just “saying” my pantry is tiny, it really, truly is – it’s no more than a foot wide. So I have to be really particular about what I keep in it. One staple I always have in there? Nielsen-Massey extracts. No joke, I a whole little shelf in my pantry dedicated to their products – I literally use them minimum once a week).
Cooking with extracts is so great because they really add a lot of flavors while not needing a bunch of other ingredients.
I combined the lemon and orange extracts with some apricot jam and red pepper flakes to make a marinade for chicken which I then grilled.
The end result? AMAZING! Slightly sweet and spicy grilled chicken with amazing citrus flavors that really bring the dish together. Next time you’re looking for a quick and easy grilling recipe to bring to a BBQ, I’d recommend trying these citrus chicken skewers!
