As summer is out in full force, it’s a good idea to build up your repertoire of bbq dishes. Perfect for friends, family, or just a lazy afternoon in the sun, this chicken skewer recipe will do the trick. Here’s how to make it.


  • Chicken breast
  • Deveined shrimp
  • 3 limes
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne
  • Jalapeños
  • Red onion


Mix the Marinade: first, mix the zesty marinade. Add one teaspoon of coriander, 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne, and two tablespoons of olive oil into a mixing bowl. Grate the zest of one lime into the mix and combine.

Start Marinading: divide the marinade into two bowls. In the first bowl, toss the chicken breast and cut it into thirds. In the second, toss the shrimp until covered.

Grill on the Barbecue: take the jalapenos and red onion and mix them with two tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. When all of the components have been marinaded, thread each skewer with alternations of shrimp, chicken, and veggies. Place each skewer on the BBQ and grill for 8-10 minutes.

Serve: when each skewer is nicely charred and cooked all the way through, serve with tortillas and sour cream.
