Honey-Lime Chicken Skewers

This recipe is one I found online and it sounded so delicious, I just had to give it a shot. It’s very easy, very scrumptious, and this is just the first day of September--plenty of time left to still do something on the grill! I’ve grilled even in the winter, if we can get to the grill, but if you can’t, this can be done under the broiler in the oven. Give it a try and see how you like it.

So, let’s get cooking!

Cut the chicken breasts into cubes about 1” in size.

Peel and mince the garlic, chop the cilantro, and mix the marinade, which is the garlic and cilantro plus all the other ingredients.

Place the cubed chicken and the marinade in a bag and marinate all day or better yet, overnight. The original recipe says for at least an hour, but in all my marinating experience, all day long or overnight (24 hours) makes such a difference in the taste.

Just before you’re ready to cook, soak wooden skewers in water for about five minutes. Or use metal skewers. ;) Push the cubes of marinated chicken onto the skewers.

Grill (or use the broiler) until chicken is cooked through.

Serve and enjoy! ~TMMF
