Spicy Bud Light Lime Chicken Kabobs

This summer has been filled with spontaneous road trips, backyard parties with friends, and day trips to the coast. The warm summer temperatures have been perfect for grilling and spending time outside. This past week, we took coolers full of marinated Spicy Bud Light Lime Chicken Kabobs and Bud Light Lime beer to the beach for a fun day with friends.Spicy Bud Light Lime ChickenBud Light Lime was the perfect beer for our spur-of-the-moment trip to the beach. The new sleek cans are a great alternative to glass bottles. Bare feet and broken bottles in the sand are never a good mix. This light beer has a refreshing natural lime flavor that is great for hot summer days. We spent our day at the beach swimming, playing beach volleyball, and grilling. It was great to catch up with friends, laugh about college memories, and enjoy great food and beer.

Spicy Bud Light Lime Chicken

These Spicy Bud Light Lime Chicken Kabobs are marinated overnight in Bud Light Lime and spices. Originally, our plan was to have a few friends over to grill for a low-key summer day. When we decided to completely change plans and go to the beach, we tossed the bag of marinated chicken into a cooler full of ice. Our spontaneous day trip wasn’t going to stop us from enjoying this delicious lime beer grilled chicken. The chicken is also flavored with red chili sauce, which adds a nice kick. If you are making this chicken at home, you can convert the marinade into a glaze. Boiling the marinade will make it safe to eat. In order for the chicken to cook properly at the beach, I cut the chicken into cubes and placed them on skewers. The skewered chicken cooks quickly and can be enjoyed without a knife and fork. We all had a chicken kabob in one hand and an ice-cold beer in the other. It was perfect for a party on the beach.

On the way home from the coast, we were already planning our next summer adventure before our big trip to New Zealand. With friends spread out all over the United States, we decided to squeeze in one last road trip before we left. The most fun and memorable trips are often the impromptu ones with little preplanning.

This summer, Bud Light Lime is bringing you the flavorful, refreshing twist of lime that will keep you ready for spontaneous fun all summer long. And now, the perfect beer for whatever happens invites you to click here to prove that you’re #upforwhatever.

Serves: 3-4
Ingredients
  • 1 12oz can Bud Light Lime
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 lime, sliced thinly
  • 3 tsp red chili sauce (Sriracha)
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • 6 wooden skewers
  • Additional lime slices for skewers (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the beer, tomato paste, honey, soy sauce, salt, garlic powder, chili powder, paprika, red chili sauce, and lime slices. Set aside.
  2. Cut the chicken breasts into 1-inch cubes. Place the cubes into a large zip-top bag and add the lime beer marinade. Place into the refrigerator and allow the chicken to marinate for at least 5 hours, preferably overnight.
  3. While the chicken is marinating, soak the wooden skewers in water. When ready to grill, thread the chicken onto the skewers. Alternate with lime slices, if desired.
  4. Preheat the grill to high heat. Once hot, lightly oil the grill grate. Place the skewers on the grill and cook for about 15 minutes, until the chicken is cooked and the juices run clear. Turn and brush with the marinade frequently.
  5. Serve immediately.
To convert the marinade into a glaze:
  1. Add the marinade to a pot over high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for about 10 minutes, until the mixture has reduced and thickened. Brush the thickened marinade over the chicken and grill as above.

What do you suggest for the "red chili sauce?" I did a google search, and found that to some people, that would mean Heinz Chili Sauce. To others, that would mean Sriracha or Mongolian fire oil.

I am not a fan of "flavored beers" like this - but OMG is it perfect in this kabob! They look FANTASTIC! So many yummy flavors with the spice and the beer is always a perfect marinade!

I served these chicken kabobs with my Southwest Black Bean Salad. It's light and fresh, so it pairs well with the lime chicken. It's super easy to throw together and it can marinate while you're grilling! If you have a large grill, you can also serve the kabobs with a side of grilled vegetables.
