  • Light a grill. Thread the chicken onto 8 metal skewers, leaving a small space between each piece. Brush the chicken with vegetable oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and just cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Suggested Pairing

Beer A brisk Mexican lager like Sol is fantastic with ingredients like the tomato and cilantro here.

Wine An equally vibrant white wine, like a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand's Marlborough region, would also pair well.
