PARTNER POST: Dive into the 120 days of summer with Santa Rita wines that pair perfectly with the foods of the season, straight off the grill.
Head outside and make these sinfully easy and delicious chicken skewers doused in spices and a simple barbecue sauce. Enjoy on the patio with a Chilean wine for a perfect pair.
It’s grilling season! Grilled Chicken Skewers are one of my favorite foods off the grill. I always love making my favorite carnival foods at home and these chicken skewers were a great way to kick off the season.
One of my favorite parts about grilling is that we can also dine outside. We bring all our fixings out to the picnic table & enjoy some amazing food, the hubs & I pour a glass of wine and we just feast. For this we chose Santa Rita 120 Hero’s Reserve Red Blend & Santa Rita 120 Sauvignon Blanc from Chile because one of the things he remembers most about the summer was his parents always having wine with whatever they had grilled.
Along with our usual seasonings, we added Badia Complete Seasoning, which made the chicken so incredibly flavorful.
