Skewers are one of our favorite ways of ringing in the summer season. They’re fun to saute or grill, easy to customize, and look great when served on a platter in the middle of an array of summer salads and veggie side dishes. Serve our Spicy Chicken Skewers at your next party. They’re a guaranteed crowd pleaser, every bite full of juicy chicken and smothered in our spicy, flavorful skinny wing sauce.
These healthy chicken skewers are made with lean chicken breasts, cubed and covered in oregano, black pepper, and salt. They’re packed with lean protein and are low in fat, cholesterol, and calories. We cook them in a pan with our beloved SkinnyMs. Wing Sauce, a fabulous blend of flavors that are as well balanced as they are healthy. We start with a hot sauce and add green chilis, making for a spicy base. Chili powder and cayenne pepper add even more heat, and are balanced by sweet honey and savory paprika. Low in calories but bursting with spicy flavor, this wing sauce will make these skewers the hit of every summer party. And when you tell your guests that they’re clean eating and guilt-free, you’ll find yourself handing over the recipe!
