Chipotle Lime Chicken Fajita Skewers

Our family enjoyed these chicken bites. We didn’t use them in fajitas; we just ate them as is. The original recipe as is was on the cusp of being too much heat for my kids, so I revised the recipe below to decrease the amount of ground chipotle pepper.



4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lbs.)
5 limes, juiced
1/2 Tbsp sea salt
1/2 Tbsp cumin
1/2 Tbsp ground chipotle pepper
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 red bell peppers
2 green bell peppers
1 red onion



Juicing four of the limes into a small mixing bowl. Mix in the salt, cumin, chipotle pepper, cilantro and garlic to make the marinade.

Chop the chicken breasts into cubes and place in a large Ziploc bag or plastic container. Pour the marinade over the chicken. Close and shake well until all of the chicken is covered. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to marinate.

While the chicken is marinating chop the bell peppers and onions.

After the chicken has soaked up all of those amazing flavors start to skewer the chicken, bell peppers and onions. Place the skewers on the grill over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, flip and grill for an additional 5-7 minutes. After the chicken is cooked through, remove from the grill, squeeze the last lime over the skewers and serve!



4-6 servings
