Some of my friends were asking me for a new chicken recipe to make this summer. There's nothing better than Chili-Lime chicken skewers.
One of my favorite chicken recipes for this summer 2020, is Grilled Chili-Lime Chicken skewers with a drizzle of a homemade tangy yogurt sauce. It is a balanced and healthy meal packed with lots of flavor.
The chili-lime seasoning is the key ingredient to elevate the taste of the chicken breast. This recipe is very easy to make and just a few steps to follow: cubed chicken, seasoning, marinade, assembled skewers with veggies and then grill it to perfection.
The skewers are great to enjoy by themselves, or can the perfect protein for your side salad or favorite grain bowl with veggies. For this recipe, I made a crunchy cauliflower rice, seasoned with salt, lime juice, lime zest, and cilantro, a delicious low carb option instead of white rice. For garnish, I suggest sliced avocado and fresh diced cherry tomatoes. These ingredients will add a pop of color to the dish and, of course, nutritional value.
Lime is one of my favorite citrus fruit and love to use it in dressings, marinades and sauces. The tangy yogurt sauce adds another layer of flavor to this dish, very creamy, and velvety. I love the combination from the greek yogurt, lime and fresh herbs. This makes all the ingredients come together and well balanced. This will totally elevate your taste buds.
For this recipe, I started by cubing the chicken breast and mix in the olive oil and the chili-lime seasonings. The key to this recipe is to marinate the chicken for about 20 minutes so all the flavors are absorbed and will help keep the meat juice not dry. I will assemble the skewers with mushrooms and onions, you may add your favorite veggies, like zucchini colorful bell peppers or tomatoes. These are ready to hit the grill.
For the tangy and bright dip, I mixed together greek yogurt, lime zest, lemon juice, and a blend of herbs that I had in my garden. I used just a handful of these herbs like basil, cilantro and parsley. They are a great combo for this tangy and delicious sauce that can be easily used as either a dip or dressing.
I hope you enjoy this simple, colorful recipe that is packed with flavor. It is one that the whole family will enjoy.
