Chicken Skewers With A Mexican Flair

"This is such a simple recipe, easy to make and it tastes darn good too. When I use lime juice in any marinade I am very careful not to marinate too long as the lime juice "cooks" the meat and can toughen, in this case, the chicken. If you are using bamboo skewers soak them for an hour in water. I prefer the long metal skewers for this recipe, allowing 1 skewer per serving. This recipe lends itself well for BBQ"
