  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander seed
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2 inch chunks
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 8 6- inch wooden skewers soaked in water for 1 hour
For the salsa:
  • 1 1/2 cups diced mango
  • 1/2 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/4 cup cup minced red onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons minced serrano chili pepper or jalapeno pepper for a milder flavor
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • juice of 1 lime
  1. Place the olive oil, lime juice, zest, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, cayenne and coriander in a resealable bag. Seal the bag and mix the ingredients together by gently squeezing the bag.
  2. In a medium bowl, add the mango, pepper, onion, cilantro, chili pepper, salt and lime. Toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. Add the chicken to the bag and press out the air. Seal the bag and marinade for 1 – 24 hours.
  4. Thread 4-5 pieces of chicken on each skewer being sure to leave space between each piece so the chicken cooks evenly.
