Chipotle Chicken Kebabs with Avocado Cream Sauce

The Hubby was introduced to the George Foreman grill by his parents so now he wants one so he can grill throughout the winter.  My response?....  YOU GO RIGHT AHEAD!!!  I'm not going to complain about him wanting to make dinner!  In fact, he is becoming more and more willing to help plan a meal or two and/or giving me some good ideas and suggestions.  Plus, he is letting me take pictures while he cooks (if I am home).  I tell you ladies, patience and persistence!

Chipotle Chicken Kebabs with Avocado Cream Sauce
from The Recipe Critic

Makes 4 servings

2 lbs chicken thighs, boneless, skinless and  cut into 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon cumin
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp brown sugar
3 oz chipotle sauce (this is spicy so go easy and remember, you can always add more!)
1 avocado split and pitted
1/2 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
minced fresh cilantro for serving
  1. Whisk together vegetable oil, salt, chili powder, paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper, minced garlic, brown sugar, and chipotle sauce.
  2. In a gallon sized bag combine marinade and chicken and refrigerate for 30-60 minutes.
  3. In a food processor combine avocado, Greek yogurt, garlic, lime juice and cilantro. Pulse until smooth (or you can mix it by hand it you are lazy, like me). Add salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Once ready to grill, thread the chicken on skewers. Place them on the grill turning once or twice until sides are cooked and insides are no longer pink. Place on a plate and sprinkle with fresh cilantro if desired.
  5. Serve avocado sauce with chicken.
I loved this recipe because it was spicy, but it was so flavorful!  Plus it was easy to make, and even easier to clean up!  The Hubby even liked the avocado sauce that went with it.  Definitely going in the repeat pile!

Thanks to Bangers and Mash for hosting this awesome Beach BBQ challenge!  This definitely fits your need to escape through food!

  1. Love your chipotle chicken kebabs - just the kind of food I love to eat! And brilliant you have used chicken thighs, which I reckon are definitely the tastiest part of the bird. Thanks so much for linking up with this month's Spice Trail :)

    1. Chicken thighs are my favorite part of the chicken. Thanks for having me :)
