How to Make This Recipe

The secret to making these chicken skewers is a little bit of extra oil and seasoning - a good pan sear and some fresh herbs really help bring all the flavors together. 

Ingredients 

To make this recipe you'll need:

  • 16 ounces Trifecta chicken breast
  • 2 cups fresh cherry tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried garlic
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped finely
  • 1 teaspoon dried garlic
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • Long wooden skewers

Instructions

Cut your chicken into 1 inch cubes by slicing each breast in half lengthwise and then cutting across each pieces 3 to 4 times until the desired bite size is achieved. Try to keep the pieces as evenly sized as possible to help them cook consistently. 

In a mixing bowl, toss together cut chicken, cherry tomatoes and seasoning with 1 tablespoon of oil. 

Heat your remaining oil in a non-stick skillet over medium high heat.

Place your seasoned chicken and tomatoes on the skewer, alternating between the two.

Cook in the skillet for 2 minutes on each side or until chicken begins to brown and tomatoes soften. 

Serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a pinch of finishing salt. 

Try these skewers with some tzatziki sauce or hummus for dipping.
