Summer comes early in my kitchen. Well, being here in California, we have been having warm weather since January, but I still can’t wait for the real summer to come.
There is a lot to look forward to, first of all, we will be going back to my hometown Penang, Malaysia for the entire summer in a few weeks time.
While I am away, Rasa Malaysia kitchen here in Irvine will be closed, and that’s why I have been developing new recipes and cooking up a storm before I head back.
I wanted to make sure that you will have fresh, new, easy and delicious summer recipes while I am gone.
Cilantro lime chicken is well-loved by many, and when you thread the chicken into skewers and turn them into kebabs, you have the juiciest, mouthwatering, and extremely flavorful meat-on-a-stick that you just can’t stop eating.
Garlic, cilantro, lime, dried chili flakes and olive oil are all you need for this cilantro lime chicken kebab recipe. Marinate it for 30 minutes or up to 2 hours for the best flavors.
