There’s nothing more refreshing than an ice-cold lemonade on a hot summer day. Just in time for Labor Day weekend, I have the perfect pairing with a glass of Sunkist Lemonade for your end of summer BBQs — grilled lemonade chicken kabobs. 

Sunkist Lemonade Chicken Kabobs

If you have never tried lemonade chicken, you don’t know what you are missing. A sweet and tangy marinade that will have you dreaming of summer days in the pool. Sunkist Lemonade is the flavor of summer, and these lemonade chicken kabobs are the perfect way to enjoy the flavor in a whole new way. 

Oh and the fresh mint, that was my husband’s idea. I wasn’t so sure, but he was right — it gives it that extra something. Of course, the kids baulked at “green things” on their chicken, so they missed out, but you have to try it. (Sans green things, my kids gobbled up the lemonade kabobs insisting that we make them again soon.)

Lemon Chicken Kabobs

What’s great about grilled lemonade chicken kabobs is that most of the work is done the day before. So you can prep them when you have time, and then they made for a quick meal. Whether you have spent the day relaxing in the pool or it’s been a busy day, the flavor of summer is ready in under 20 minutes. 

Wondering what to pair with the kabobs? Allow me to suggest rice pilaf, a slice of watermelon and your favorite summer vegetable. And, of course, don’t forget to pour everyone an ice-cold glass of Sunkist Lemonade to accompany the grilled lemonade chicken kabobs. That’s how we enjoyed them — the perfect flavors of summer.
