Everyone loves a make-ahead recipe, especially in the summer when that extra bit of post-work sun is precious. Thankfully, this flavourful lemongrass chicken skewer recipe can be prepped a day ahead, making tomorrow night’s dinner a cinch.

Cooking for a crowd? This recipe easily doubles. As if that wasn’t enough, you can use mini chicken breasts to help speed up the prep, because lets face it, no-one loves prep.

Plus, the sweet chilli peanut serving sauce requires no cooking. In fact, everything about this recipe is so delicious & easy you’ll be adding it to your summer cooking repertoire for sure.
