This is truly my kind of summer. Tender, juicy, lemony-garlicky chicken bites threaded on a skewer with some charred red onions and lemon halves for even more extra lemon goodness.

And believe me, I’ll still be throwing these on a cast iron grill pan on the stovetop during the winter months when it’s snowing out!

NOTES:

As always, chicken breasts can be used instead, and if rosemary is not your jam, you can substitute thyme (dried or fresh!) or any other herb of your choosing.
