    My Private Note


    Serves: 4



    Units: US | Metric


    Fiery Spice Blend



    • 8 wooden skewers
    • 6 jalapeno peppers, seeded and quartered
    • 1 small onion, peeled and quartered
    • 1 fresh pineapple, cubed (optional)


    1. 1
      SAUCE: Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend well. Season with salt and white pepper to taste. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
    2. 2
      FIERY SPICE BLEND: Mix all ingredients and keep in an airtight container.
    3. 3
      CHICKEN: In a medium bowl (or Ziploc bag), mix chicken pieces with chicken ingredients listed. Toss to coat, cover and refrigerate 2-24 hours.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, place the quartered jalapenos and cubed onion in a little olive oil to soak. Toss together with some salt & pepper and set aside. You can leave them loosely covered on the counter.
    5. 5
      Soak wood skewers in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning. Remove the jalapenos and onion from the oil, shaking off excess. Reserve the oil for the grill.
    6. 6
      To the skewers, place a piece of chicken, then a jalapeno, then a cubed layer of the onion (then pineapple chunks if using). Repeat to fill up skewers.
    7. 7
      Brush grill rack with reserved oil and then place skewers onto the grill about 4-6 inches away from coals and cook for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally and brushing with any remaining oil, until chicken is cooked through. Serve with sauce.

      this was really good, i made both a yogurt and a sour cream sauce, found the sour cream worked better at taming the heat. Cooked the cubes in my fry pan bc i was short of time, truly enjoyed it

      This was good but I did not care for the sauce and I think it was the mint that we didn't like. The Fiery Spice Blend was perfect for us. I used this as a stir-fry and it made for a quick dinner. Thanks for sharing. Made for Healthy Choice Tag Game.

      Fabulous!! The sauce alone is a winner. I was dipping tortilla chips into the sauce. Absolutely delicious. I definitely recommend using fresh cilantro. The chicken kabobs are also delicious! I loved the heat/spice. I used 1 Tablespoon of the cayenne and thought it was the perfect heat level for us. Thanks for a great grilling recipe!
