Tangy, Sweet Chili and Lime Chicken Skewers with Pineapple & Chourizo Sausage make for a delicious light summer meal.
Recipe from Chef Daamian – The Reefs
- 1 1/2 lbs boneless/skinless chicken breast (medium cubes)
- 1/4 fresh pineapple (medium cubes)
- 1 Tbsp chopped garlic
- 1/4 lb chourizo sausage (medium dice)
- 3 limes (juice and zest of 2 limes)
- 1 red onion (medium cubes)
- Cilantro leaves
- 1 red pepper (medium cubes)
- 1 Tbsp Southwest chipotle seasoning
- 1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning
- 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
- 1 cup sweet chili sauce
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 pkg. large wooden skewers
Soak the skewers in warm water to prevent them from burning on the grill. Heat a cast iron grill on the stove top. Season the chicken cubes with salt, pepper, garlic, lime juice and zest, Cajun seasoning, chipotle seasoning and smoked paprika. Arrange skewers alternating chicken, pineapple, red pepper, red onion and chourizo. Sear skewers on the grill 30 seconds on each side and then place in a pre-heated 350°F oven for 5-7 minutes. Glaze with sweet chili sauce after 5 minutes. Remove and let rest for 2 minutes. Garnish with cilantro leaves and lime wedges.
