cilantro-lemon chicken skewers
Weekly Bite is back in action and despite my sleeplessness, I’ve been doing a fair amount of cooking and baking.
My family was very happy about this 🙂
Last night I made cilantro-lemon chicken skewers. The original recipe called for limes. The ones on my lime tree weren’t ripe yet… but the lemons were more than ready to be used.
This dinner came together in a matter of minutes.
All you do is combine the lemon juice (or lime) with cilantro, olive oil, salt & pepper, and garlic.
Combine the marinade in a large ziploc bag with chicken breast tenders, or chicken breasts cut into 2 inch strips.
Let it marinade for an hour then thread the chicken through the skewers.
Grill for about 7-8 minutes on each side until chicken is cooked through.
We ate ours with a side of brown rice and arugula salad. It was delicious 🙂
