  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless, chicken breast tenders sliced into 2 inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 inch fresh ginger, minced or 1 teaspoon ginger paste

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (you can also use coconut oil, avocado oil, pick your favorite!)

  1. In a large bowl or Ziploc bag, whisk together all ingredients (except for the oil and garnishes). Add the chicken breast pieces and toss to coat. Cover the bowl/seal the bag and marinate for at least 30 minutes, up to over night.
  2. If using wooden skewers, soak for 30 minutes before grilling.
  3. When ready to cook, thread marinated chicken onto skewers.
  4. Pre-heat outdoor or indoor grill pan over medium high heat. Brush with the oil.
  5. Grill chicken skewers 4-5 minutes per side, until they reach 165°F. Remove from heat and let rest for 2 minutes.
  6. Drizzle with Sriracha as desired. Garnish with cilantro, and lime slices. Serve immediately.
