Keto Harissa Chicken Skewers

|Keto Harissa Chicken Skewers

Summer is the perfect time for barbecues and tasty meat skewers. If you follow my blog, you know that I don't buy almost any condiments - I prefer to make my own keto basics such as BBQ sauces, pesto, ketchup, mayo or Harissa paste which is what I used to make this recipe. Serve these skewers with summer salads or cauli-rice!
