Lime Salsa Chicken Skewers With Cilantro Crème Sauce

Recipe by Pellerin

Not only does this Mexican-inspired "kebob" make wicked-good fajitas, tacos, burritos, or just plain, the cilantro creme sauce turns any other sandwich (e.g turkey, beef...) into something phenominal!

I have to agree with you about the cilantro creme sauce! I couldn't stop eating it! That is what really makes this dish--I served it with some plain rice, and it was outstanding--and EASY! Thanks a bunch for a new way with chicken--
