This simple recipe is a crowd pleaser. Kids like it because there’s no garlic or strong spices. Make ahead to allow the marinade to work it’s magic!

 

INGREDIENTS

2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Zest of 3 limes
Juice of 3 limes
3 tbsp fresh chopped mint
1/2 tsp of salt

 

METHOD

Cut the chicken into 1 ½ inch strips for skewering.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime zest/juice, mint , and salt.

Place the chicken in a large, heavy duty zip-top sealable bag. Pour the marinade into the bag and seal, removing as much air as possible.

Put the bag on a large plate and allow to marinate in the fridge for at least 3 hours (better overnight). Flip the bag from time to time to make sure all the chicken is coated.

A few hours before cooking, soak the wooden skewers in water.

Generously grease the grill and heat over medium. Skewer the chicken, evenly divided between 6-8 skewers.

Place the skewers on the hot grill and cook for 10-15 minutes, turning once during cooking, until cooked through. Serve hot. Garnish with lime wedges and fresh mint.
