Recipe type: Chicken, Grilling

 
These are great skewers I made last night, perfect for a summer evening when it’s too nice outside to be cooped up in the kitchen!
Ingredients
  • 6 Tbs. olive oil
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbs. sugar
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3 ripe but firm mangoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch cubes
  • Bell peppers, optional
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, mix together the spices, and lime juice. Immerse the chicken and mangoes in the mixture and marinate for 2-4 hours, covered, in the refrigerator.
  2. Prepare a hot grill, line the grill with a strip of foil on one end to prevent the bottom of the skewers from burning.
  3. Take the skewers and alternately place pieces of chicken, mango and peppers.
  4. Arrange the skewers evenly on the grill. Turn them once while cooking and cook until cooked through and nicely charred. 6-10 minutes. Remove from grill and serve immediately.
Notes
You can marinate the mango with the chicken but if you’re marinating a while they may get mushy so feel free to leave them out.

Here’s an example of using foil on the grill so your skewers don’t burn.
