Honey Chili Lime Chicken Skewers

I am still here. Cooking a lot, reflecting, eating, drinking coffee, having family time, digging in the dirt + living in the moment. AND I plan to continue posting recipes because we still need to EAT.


In these times, delicious yet fast + healthy meals are what we are looking for....enter these skewers.


Um, honey + chili + lime...SOOO good! I also love how using chicken thighs adds more flavor + using a super hot grill always helps.


These came together so quickly. Sprinkle the rub + honey on top the skewers + grill until cooked through. Always drizzle more of the chipotle honey on top when serving.


Amazingly simple + quick recipe for any day of the week - let's get started!


Honey Chili Lime Chicken Skewers


8 boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut in half

8 wooden skewers

2 tablespoons chili powder

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder

1/2 teaspoon real salt

1/2 teaspoon cumin

3 tablespoons honey

1 lime, 1/2 zest, 1/2 juice


Preheat your grill to high heat.


Using one skewer at a time, add 2-3 chicken thigh pieces to each skewer. Arrange on a baking tray. Mix all the spices together in a small bowl. Using a teaspoon or your fingers, sprinkle the spice blend over both sides of the chicken. When all the spices have been used. Drizzle 2 tablespoons on honey on top. Squeeze the lime juice over the chicken + sprinkle with the zest.


When your grill is super hot, add the skewers, Cook for 4 minutes on the first side with the grill cover closed. Flip over and turn the heat down slightly + cover the grill. Cook for another 4-6 minutes or until the chicken is just cooked through.


Remove + place on a platter or plate. Drizzle the remaining honey on top + serve.


Enjoy!
