Summer is basically here, that means it’s time to grill! We LOVE a good barbecue. Seriously, in the Summer we basically live at the pool making burgers, steaks, and all types of shish kabobs! One of our favorites are our chicken fajita kabobs. They are so easy, packed with flavor, and go really well alongside our homemade guac recipe.
So currently our grill is broken =( but I really wanted these chicken kabobs, so I bought a grill pan.
Can I just say, I am in love! It was the cheapest thing ever. I just picked it up at IKEA for like $14 and it works great! Look at the pics, I didn’t even clean the pan before snapping those shots! There was hardly any mess and the minimal clean up that was needed was a piece of cake! Anyway, this isn’t sponsored or anything, I was just pleasantly surprised and wanted to share in case you’re in the market for a grill pan that doesn’t break the bank 😉
Tips for success:
When making these chicken kabobs, make sure to cut the chunks into bite size pieces, but make sure they are large enough so that they won’t break when you pierce them with the skewer. We love using wooden skewers because they are cheap, and easy to clean up/toss in the trash ;). Plus, they usually come with a ton in a pack which are perfect for Summer parties!
The orange sauce in the image below is a spicy chipotle cream. It is 1 jar cacique crema mexicana blended with 1 can La Costena Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce. It is pretty spicy, but adds a great flavor if you like that kind of thing 😉
Right now I’m envisioning these chicken fajita kabobs, some fresh guac, homemade salsa, homemade refried beans, chips, and tons of fresh fruit! Maybe for a Cinco de Mayo party?? Anyone?
