You are going to love these Garlic Lime Chicken Kabobs! You can make them ahead of time and pull them out of the freezer whenever you need a quick and easy (and delicious) dinner. These kabobs are great for grilling indoors or outdoors, perfect for any time of year!
First, you will want to cut up your boneless, skinless chicken breasts into 1 1/2″ pieces. Place the chicken pieces into a ziplock bag and set aside.
Next, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, minced garlic, salt, pepper and Sriracha sauce (you can leave out the hot sauce if it will be too spicy for you, but I love the zing it gives the chicken) in a medium sized bowl. If you’ve never tried Sriracha, you don’t know what you’re missing…it’s delicious!
Pour the mixture into the ziplock bag with the chicken pieces. Try to get as much air out as you can and seal the bag shut. It’s always a good idea to put the bag inside an empty bowl in the fridge, just in case the bag leaks (it might save you from having a big mess later). Let the chicken marinate for 2-8 hours.
Remove the chicken from the fridge and thread onto skewers (wooden or metal skewers will work just fine). If you are using wooden skewers and you plan on cooking the kabobs right away, it would be a good idea to soak the skewers for about 30 minutes before adding the chicken. If you are going to freeze this recipe, there is no need to soak the skewers.
Freezer Meal Directions:
These Garlic Lime Chicken Kabobs are great for entertaining, so feel free to double or triple the recipe.
To freeze, place the skewered chicken in a labeled, freezer safe, ziplock bag or freezer safe container. Be careful not to poke a hole in the bag with the sharp end of the skewer.
Place the frozen chicken in the refrigerator the night before to thaw. Once thawed, preheat your grill to medium-high heat and cook the kabobs for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally.
Yum! Don’t they look delicious?
