  • 1 lb chicken breast cubed; roughly 2 large chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ lime juiced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 bell peppers cut into cubes
  • 1 red onion cut into large chunks

Mango Sauce:

  • 1 mango
  • ½ lime juiced
  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar


Chicken Skewers

  • Heat grill to medium-high heat (425°F)
  • In a large bowl, stir together the chicken cubes with the olive oil, lime juice, chili powder, brown sugar and salt.
  • Using large metal skewers, thread the chicken, alternating with bell pepper and red onion slices. See note 1
  • Grill the skewers for approximately 10 total minutes, turning every 2 minutes, until chicken is cooked through. You may check with an instant read thermometer that the chicken has reached 165°F

Mango Sauce

  • Place all ingredients in the base of a blender, and blend for a minute, or until smooth.


1- if using wooden skewers, soak them for 30 minutes before grilling to ensure they don't burn and break on the grill
Cooked skewers may be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Reheat on the grill for 5 minutes, or until warmed through.
Mango sauce is best when served fresh, but it can keep for up to 1 week in the fridge.
