Lime Marinated Chicken Kabobs

Sometimes the simplest of ingredients and flavors really pack the best of punches.  Lime, for instance, is one of my favorite ingredients to use in a marinade because the flavor really comes through and takes what would be a boring piece of grilled chicken and turns it into a mouthwatering meal that we would eat again and again.  There are a million and one ways to marinade chicken (or any meat) and this is just another great option.  I cut the chicken into bite size pieces and grilled them as kabobs but do with them as you please!

Chicken is one of my favorite ingredients because it absorbs so many different flavors very well. This is definitely a flavor combination I can play around with. Thanks!
