Spring is finally back! Warm up the BBQ it is time to make some skewers! Coconut and Lime chicken skewers with coconut rice I.LOVE. YOU!!!I love those skewers so much that I made them 3 times last month. The mix of coconut and lime is simply a bomb. The marinade give lots of flavour to the meat but also makes the chicken moist and juicy.
I love this recipe because the marinade can be made in few minutes and then all you have to do is to simply leave the diced chicken thigh soak into the marinade. I usually prepare the skewers just before grilling them on the BBQ to avoid the meat to dry and keep a maximum of marinade onto the meat. Those lovely Coconut and Lime Chicken Skewers are marinated with a mix of coconut cream, honey (you can use rice malt syrup for a lower sugar options), lime, ginger, chilli, garlic, soy sauce and apple cider vinegar. A magical mixture inspired by a recipe of the talented Half Baked Harvest.
To add some crush and freshness I filled the tortillas with a pineapple & capsicum salsa marinated in sesame oil. It is optional but I love sprinkling fresh chopped coriander on the top of the tortilla as well.
