Definitely one of my go-to grill recipes -These Beer Lime Chicken Skewers are ridiculously easy to put together, and a great way to entertain guests at your next BBQ party. I mean, what’s better than the Beer + Skewers + BBQ combo?!
These Beer Lime Chicken Skewers take no time at all. All you need is 7 simple ingredients: chicken breast, chili pepper, soy sauce, lime juice, garlic, hot/mild paprika and of course BEER!
The beer is the real star of the recipe, with its double action of both tenderising the meat, and giving a deep aromatic flavor to the whole dish.
I went for the Ambrata from Menabrea, the most ancient brewery in Italy. I’ve collaborated with this Italian brand before to make an extraordinary Beer Cake, and can’t recommend it enough! This time around, I’ve opted for their amber beer.
The Ambrata is a well-balanced beer with a marked floral fruitiness and a slightly bitter undertone, making it a great choice both for the marinade and to accompany the finished dish.
The simple marinade is effortlessly easy to put together. All you have to do is combine the ingredients and mix them all up in a large bowl.
Then add your chicken cubes into the bowl, and submerge them with the beer. *Make sure to drink any leftover beer while you wait for the chicken to absorb all the marinade flavors*.
Let the chicken marinade for a couple hours, the longer you leave it the better it will taste and the more flavor it will have. I usually prepare this the night before and let it marinate in the fridge until next day.
Then all you have to do is thread the chicken on skewers and grill ’em.
Juicy, tender, tangy, crispy, deliciously savory. These Beer Lime Chicken Skewers are a light but tasty addition to any BBQ party. And quick enough to be made during the work week for an easy fuss-free dinner option.
