Fajita Chicken Kebabs
Servings: 2 people
Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime plus additional for serving
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 1 jalapeño chopped (remove seeds and membrane if sensitive to spice)
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1/2 of a red onion
  • Fresh cilantro for serving
  • Salsa, sour cream (or plain yogurt), and guacamole, optional for serving sour cream (or plain yogurt), and guacamole, optional for serving
Instructions
  1. Cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Place in a zip-top bag.
  2. In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the oil, lime juice and zest, chili powder, cumin, garlic, jalapeno, and salt. Pour over the chicken, seal the bag, the gently “squish” the bag so that the chicken is coated with the marinade. Place the bag in a baking dish to catch any accidental drips, then refrigerate for 30 minutes or overnight. If using wooden skewers, soak the skewers in water for at least 20 minutes prior to use.

  3. When ready to cook, heat your grill to medium-high. Cut the bell pepper and onion into 3/4-inch chunks, then thread onto skewers with the marinated chicken pieces, alternating the chicken with the vegetables. Lightly oil the grill, then place the kabobs on the grill, cover, and let cook until the chicken is fully cooked and no longer pink, about 6 to 8 minutes, turning the chicken once or twice throughout so that it cooks evenly.

  4. Remove the chicken kebabs to a serving plate and sprinkle with cilantro and a few squeezes of fresh lime juice. Serve warm, garnished with salsa, sour cream, or guacamole as desired.
