Honey-Lime Chicken Skewers

I have been spoiled as of late.

Runs on the beach….dog walks on the beach. Ice cream treats. Open windows – car and home. Sunglasses. Flip flops, Capris.

Late spring…it’s the best. When it’s not raining, of course…

Mr. Prevention being in India for work has not completely deterred me from cooking at night, even though cooking for 1 is not my most favorite thing to do. It just seems like a lot of work and a lot of dishes to simply fill your fridge with leftovers you may not want to eat for 4 days straight. Quick meals for 1 are a must. Heck, quick meals for 2 are a must. Controlled volumes are helpful, too.

When the weather is nice out…I don’t want to be stuck in a kitchen. Even if were to have great natural light and a good cross breeze…which mine has neither.

This marinade is full of bold flavors that if you’re anything like me, you likely stock in your pantry and fridge. The recipe called for chicken, but I think beef or shrimp would be great in this marinade, too, and then grilled just the same. There was enough marinade for about 1 1/2 pounds of meat, so you could increase the meat…or add veggies, as well. :)

Through Skype, I was able to make Mr. Prevention jealous of these skewers. Maybe he misses home-cooked meals and his wife after all?   I won’t hold my breath, will anxiously await his arrival…and perhaps consider making these again for him to enjoy.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe: simple and great flavor! Enjoyed it for lunch today, and will make it again soon. I’m glad I found your site through Tastespotting, and look forward to trying other recipes!

  5. Looks really good, except that I have always read/been told that soy sauce has wheat. Every bottle I have ever picked up had it listed, and just the other night I watched a show that showed how soy sauce was made and they used wheat. Is there a soy sauce out there that anyone knows of that doesn’t have gluten?
