These delicious Cilantro Lime Skewers are brought to you by Pompeian. #TrendingInTheKitchen #ad
Summer is here which means it is time to dust off the grill. I don’t know about you but we have been counting down the days until we can get working on some new street food inspired dishes. These skewers are a-maz-ing and so simple to whip up. With just a few fresh ingredients, and Pompeian Smooth Extra Virgin Olive Oil, you have a grill ready recipe that is sure to be a family favorite!
Cilantro can be a bit of an overwhelming flavor which had me a little nervous. I wanted just a subtle hint of the flavor not a big explosion of cilantro that ends up taking over the entire dish. Luckily, the lime paired with the honey was just what I needed to tone things down.
I started by combining those three ingredients with a hefty drizzle of oil in a large ziplock bag. Add your chicken strips and let everything blend together for an hour or two. Give your grill top a nice spritz of Pompeian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Non-stick Cooking Spray and you’re ready to get cooking! Pompeian Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray is an innovative cooking spray that utilizes a powerful pouch system without the use of propellants or other artificial additives to dispense the oil. Perfect for sautéing, sauces and stir frying, the delicate flavor of Smooth Extra Virgin Olive Oil is fruity and aromatic with apple notes and a sweet almond aftertaste. The extra virgin olive oil is well balanced by a hint of spiciness.
TIP: Slice your chicken breast in half length wise. Pound each piece thin to get that street food flavor you know and love.
