Chipotle Chicken Skewers with Creamy Dipping Sauce

Guys. I think this just might be our new favorite dinner. Now, I know it’s not really grilling season anymore, technically…but, I think that the fall is one of the best time to fire up your grill! Not to mention tailgating parties and whatnot – which, these would be just perfect for. They’re so good, and so easy!

Sliced chicken breasts are marinaded in a brown sugar-chipotle concoction, that has a few other of my favorite flavors thrown in as well – like garlic, lime, and cilantro. Then threaded onto skewers and grilled. You certainly could cook them under the broiler or on a grill pan as well to get the same charred flavor without having to fire up the grill.

And, lest we not forget the delicious dipping sauce that accompanies them. Creamy, delicious, and studded with finely chopped herbs and scallions – it’s a perfect contrast to the spicy, sweet heat from the chicken.

I served them with cilantro lime rice and steamed broccoli for a healthy dinner that we all enjoyed. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

    THAT looks awesome.
    Grilling season is AZ is not in summer (too hot), so this is perfect to add to the menu!

    This will be on my menu after Thanksgiving! We eat a lot of chicken and new ways to prepare it always gets me excited and when it’s on a stick, my youngest thinks it’s the grandest thing!
