For the sauce:


  1. Toss the chicken in the lime juice, cover, and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes, maximum of 4 hours. Using 5-6 metal skewers, pierce the chicken pieces so that you have 10-12 pieces on each. Drizzle the skewers with the olive oil and then sprinkle with the salt and pepper.
  2. Heat either a grill or grill pan over high heat. Once at temperature, add the skewers and cook each side for 4 to 5 minutes, or until they start to brown. Transfer to a plate and let rest for 5 minutes.
  3. For the sauce, add the ingredients to a blender and blend on high for about 1 minute, or until it looks mostly even.
  4. Serve the sauce over the chicken and garnish with the cilantro and fresh lime. Enjoy!
