Cilantro and spicy chili come together on these tangy chicken skewers mixed with peppers and onions. Full of flavor from the fresh cilantro, this dish can be made by using the broil setting in your oven or over medium-high heat on the grill. Enjoy with a low-carb tortilla or a scoop of Cauliflower “Rice”.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1/4 cup red chili paste

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce

  • 2 garlic clove, minced

  • 1 tsp onion powder

  • 1 tsp minced fresh ginger

  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 pound boneless chicken thighs cut into 1-inch cubes.

  • 1 onion, roughly chopped

  • 2 red bell peppers, roughly chopped

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to broil.
  • In a large bowl, combine the cilantro, olive oil, red chili paste, soy sauce, garlic, onion powder, ginger, and black pepper.
  • Add the thigh meat. Toss to coat. Refrigerate for 15 minutes to marinate.
  • Remove the chicken from the refrigerator. Skewer the chicken cubes, alternating with the onions and peppers between each piece.
  • Place a foil-lined baking sheet on the lowest oven rack.
  • Lay the chicken skewers directly on the middle rack above the baking sheet, perpendicular to the rack. Cook for 3 minutes. Turn the skewers over and cook for 3 minutes more. Turn the skewers again, and cook for 4 minutes more. With a meat thermometer, check the internal temperature. When it reaches 165°F, remove from the oven to cool.
  • Serve on the skewers or remove the meat and vegetables from the skewers prior to plating.
