Peruvian-inspired Grilled Chicken Skewers
These Peruvian-inspired Grilled Chicken Skewers made with boneless, skinless chicken thighs are juicy and so flavorful topped with a spicy avocado aji verde sauce. The chicken is marinated with beer, Sazon, cumin and spices. The creamy spicy sauce is so good, I’ve been putting it on my eggs, steak tacos, etc. I’ve made these Grilled Chicken Skewers a few times in the past month, and they’ve been such a hit with my family. They are so delicious – the longer you marinate the chicken, the more flavor it will have. Loosely inspired by my favorite Peruvian chicken with green sauce only easy to make all summer on the grill. I like the sauce spicy, so I leave the seeds from the jalapeno in, but you can make it milder by omitting the seeds.
Spicy Avocado Aji Verde Sauce
The creamy avocado sauce made with jalapeños will be very spicy if you leave in the seeds, which is how I like it. A little goes a long way! If you prefer milder sauces, remove the seeds. This aji sauce will last four days in the refrigerator, so you can use it over anything from scrambled eggs and rice and beans to steak tacos and grilled chicken.
