Have you started to enjoy some delicious BBQ this spring? The weather has turned warm very quickly here in MN so we have the grill out and are using it as much as possible.  Did I tell you how crappy our winter was?  We have about six weeks of beautiful weather before it snows again so lets get going with the BBQ recipes!

I made some amazing Cilantro Lemon Chicken Skewers tonight for the family.  I had picked up some Lemon infused Olive Oil at an adorable little shop at Mall of America last week and was dying to use it.  I was so excited with how well these came out, even the boys loved them!

Our first grilling recipe of the season was a success!  You can find the Cilantro Lemon Chicken Recipe listed below, you’ll love how easy they are to make!

The chicken had amazing flavor, I could really taste the lemon and cilantro in the skewers.  It was the perfect light flavors for me.  This recipe is pretty healthy too, so you don’t have to feel too bad about having that second serving!

What type of recipes to you make on the grill?  I love finding new ideas and would love to hear!
