Ingredients

Chicken

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 2 tablespoons Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Dip

  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint minced

Instructions

Chicken

  • Cut chicken breast(s) into square-ish 1-inch chunks and place in a medium bowl, add remaining chicken ingredients to the bowl with the chicken and mix until evenly combined. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place a cooling rack on a lipped baking sheet and spray with cooking spray and set aside. 
    Once the chicken is done marinating, add 5 to 6 pieces of chicken to each skewer, you should have 5 to 6 skewers worth of chicken. Place on the prepared cooling rack/baking sheet.
    Bake for 10 minutes, baste with remaining marinade, bake for 10 more minutes, baste with remaining marinade, and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.

Dip

  • Mix ingredients together in a small bowl, or blend in a blender for a finer dip and refrigerate for at least an hour.
    Serve cold with chicken skewers.

Notes

The Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning has a pretty good kick to it, if you prefer things on the milder side, you can cut this down to 1 tablespoon.
The current ingredient measurements are for a dinner portion for a small family. Double the recipe for a party portion for appetizers.
