Key Lime Grilled Chicken Taco Skewers

Key Lime Grilled Chicken Taco Skewers

Last week my friend Carla brought me a giant bag of key limes from the tree at her house. Giant bag of key limes, what oh what would I do with all of these little gems!

Obviously my first thought was key lime pie, cheesecake or ice cream, but I wanted to do something different than dessert. That’s when I got thinking about one of my most popular Little Leopard Book recipes ever, Chipotle Lime Chicken Fajita Skewers.

I decided to do a twist on that recipe with the key limes and my delicious homemade taco seasoning.

Apparently I got so excited about making this recipe for lunch yesterday that I forgot to take a picture of the ingredients, but don’t worry, it’s pretty self explanatory!

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts (sliced into cubes)
  • 10 key limes (4 juiced – 6 sliced into quarters)
  • 2 tbsp taco seasoning

Place the chicken in a bowl and squeeze 4 of the key limes over the chicken. Add the taco seasoning.
