Spicy Chicken Skewers

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by kellib626

This is a great recipe! I've used it as a main dish and as an appetizer at parties. I use cornflakes for the coating and crushed red pepper flakes instead of ground red pepper--you can make it as spicy or as mild as you like. The cilantro dip cools and complements the chicken.The original recipe came from Better homes and Gardens.

I scaled this recipe back to serve one, using one chicken breast, sliced into strips. I also used the crushed corn flakes and recommend this to others. For the cayenne pepper, I just sprinkled some into the mixture, as it was hard to put that into a 1/4 of 1/4 tsp. lol!! I loved it with the sour cream mixture, great quick lunch!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
