Grilled Lemon Dijon Chicken Skewers

Grilled Lemon Dijon Chicken Skewers – a quick and easy weeknight dish!

Here’s an easy chicken dinner idea – cut up some boneless chicken breast, whip up this easy lemon Dijon marinade and leave this in the fridge overnight (or you can freeze them to use another day) then put them on a skewer and grill them for a quick weeknight dinner. The results are so juicy and flavorful, perfect with a big chopped salad (I served it with a Spriralized Cucumber Greek Salad) or make a side of orzo or grilled veggies.
