Honey Lime Chicken Kebabs

I don’t develop many meat-containing recipes, but this one is so quick and easy that I’ve included it here. Serve this as a taco filling in “make your own tacos” alongside other plant-based taco fillings such as beans, rice and roasted vegetables, to please both the flexitarians and the plant-exclusive eaters in your family.



  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 1inch cubes
  • 1 tsp finely grated lime peel
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 2 TBSP fresh lime juice
  • 1 TBSP honey
  • dash chili powder
  • cilantro sprigs (optional)


  1. Preheat oven broiler to high.
  2. Combine chicken pieces, lime peel, garlic and chili powder in a bowl and toss to coat.
  3. Thread the chicken pieces onto 8 skewers, being careful not to press the chicken pieces too closely together.
  4. Cover a broiler ban or baking dish with foil lightly wiped with olive oil; broil 4 minutes on each side until done. (If you prefer, chicken does not need to be skewered. Can spread chicken pieces directly on lightly oiled foil-lined baking dish and broil as above).
  5. While chicken is cooking, combine lime juice and honey in small bowl. Drizzle over cooked chicken kebabs. Garnish with a dash of chili powder and cilantro sprigs, if desired.
