If you’re a frequent visitor to my blog, you’ve probably noticed that I post lots of recipes involving chicken. Chicken is just so fabulous, don’t you think? Maybe I just like it because it’s something you can cook up however you want, you can throw it in a risotto, or roast it in the oven, it really is so versatile! I usually find myself using chicken for weeknight meals, resulting in quick and simple dishes. These Spicy Chicken Skewers would be perfect for the Shine Supper Club because despite being easy to make, they are always full of flavor. Have to admit that in my opinion, there is nothing worse than a bland chicken dish.
Since the base of the sauce is chili sauce, these chicken skewers are spicy. I find that they are a nice little pick me up dinner to keep you going the rest of the week. The addition of dried herbs gives the chili sauce a distinct flavor that everyone will love. Plus, skewers are fun. I love them. And these are so good no one will know there are only 5 ingredients!
Spicy Chicken Skewers
Recipe Adapted from: Canadian Living Magazine
1 lbs chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
1/4 cup chili sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp each of salt and pepper
You can cook these on the grill or in the oven. Whichever you prefer. I like using the oven!
If cooking in the oven, preheat to 375.
Cut the chicken into desire size and thread onto metal skewers. In a bowl, whisk ingredients for the sauce.
Spray a baking sheet with a little cooking spray.
Brush sauce over all sides of the chicken and bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Turn the chicken over and bake for another 15 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked.
Sprinkle with a little lime juice and serve.
