Grilled Chicken Thigh Skewers with Spiced Herb Rub by Cathy Kasey Food Studios. When the weather is warm and company is coming, the obvious cooking method for me and many others is grilling. There isn't even a glimmer of a second option. The difficult portion is deciding what to throw on the grill. Steaks, hamburgers and chicken, are all incredibly delicious, however, I am careful to feed my guests a dish that I had not prepared for them on a previous occasion. For those repeat attendees, it can prove to be quite challenging task to find something new.
I chose this chicken skewer recipe not only because it looks beautiful and is a bit of a twist on grilled chicken, but I like the flavor combinations of the herb mixture marinade. This recipe serves 6 - 8 and the list of ingredients if fairly basic. Shopping List; Chicken thighs, salt and pepper, sour cream, cilantro, olive oil, white onion, garlic, cumin seeds, black mustard seeds, fresh lime juice, jalapeno pepper, parsley and fresh mint.
