I was inspired to make this recipe the first time I threw a Kentucky Derby party back in 2013. Because what’s more Kentucky Derby than a mint julep? I combined the classic cocktail with my love of party skewers and the Mint Julep Chicken Skewers were born!

Since 2013, this recipe has been a hit at derby parties every year! When it comes to Kentucky Derby food for parties, this isn’t the only recipe I’ve got up my sleeve! Be sure to also add this Bourbon Bacon Cherry Crumble & these Squash Hush Puppies to your Southern inspired menu!

In addition to Derby day in May, these grilled bourbon chicken skewers make a delicious dinner dish or party appetizer year-round! No big hats or horse races required! And trust me, they’re so easy and delicious, you’ll want to make them all year long!

Two simple ways to make cooking a turkey so much easier:

  1. Cook a turkey breast instead of a whole turkey.
  2. Make it in a slow cooker!

This is seriously the easiest turkey recipe you’ll ever make! You can simplify your Thanksgiving dinner by making this recipe, add it to your Christmas menu, or prepare it anytime of the year for a delicious and simple dinner.

I love using my army of slow cookers to help me prepare Thanksgiving recipes, from Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Stuffing to Crock Pot Pumpkin Apple Monkey Bread for breakfast, to this Crock Pot Turkey Breast for the main course.

The “set it and forget it” nature of a crock pot is so helpful on Thanksgiving and not to mention, it frees up a ton of space in the oven!
