Citrus Chicken with Cilantro Garlic Sauce

For the chicken:

  1. 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs (ButcherBox has great ones!), cut into 1-inch cubes
  2. 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)
  3. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  5. 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  6. fresh chopped cilantro leaves, for garnish
  7. fresh lime, for garnish

For the sauce:

  1. 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk
  2. 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
  3. 2 cloves garlic
  4. 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  5. 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt


  • Toss the chicken in the lime juice, cover, and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes, maximum of 4 hours. Using 5-6 metal skewers, pierce the chicken pieces so that you have 10-12 pieces on each. Drizzle the skewers with the olive oil and then sprinkle with the salt and pepper.
