Garlic & Lime Grilled Chicken Skewers

These flavor-packed, grilled chicken skewers are on the table in just 20 minutes... you'll get great flavor fast by using picante sauce seasoned with garlic and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

Total Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 4 people 

Prep Time: 10 Minutes



  • 1 1/4 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 3/4 cup Pace® Picante Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin


  1. Place the chicken between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Pound the chicken to 1/2-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or a rolling pin. Season the chicken as desired. Cut lengthwise into 1-inch strips.

  2. Stir the picante sauce, oil, lime juice, garlic powder, and cumin in a small bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat.

  3. Thread the chicken accordion-style on 8 skewers. Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium. Grill for 10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, turning and brushing often with the picante sauce mixture. Discard any remaining picante sauce mixture.



If using wooden skewers, soak the skewers in water for 30 minutes before using.
