2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into ½-inch pieces
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tbsp brown sugar
½ tsp chili powder
¼ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
Fresh Peach Salsa
3 peaches, pitted and chopped
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small jalapeno, seeds removed and finely chopped
2 tbsp finely diced red bell pepper
2 tbsp finely diced red onion
Pinch kosher salt
4 cups baby arugula
1) Place chicken pieces in a shallow dish and toss with olive oil, lime juice, brown sugar, chili powder, salt and pepper. Let chicken marinate 30 minutes.
2) To prepare salsa, in a small bowl, toss together chopped peaches, lime juice, chopped jalapenos, red pepper, red onion and a pinch of salt to taste. Cover and set aside until ready to serve.
3) Preheat a lightly oiled grill to medium-high heat and thread chicken pieces onto skewers. Discard any remaining marinade. Grill skewers for 10-15 minutes, turning after 8 minutes until juices run clear and chicken is cooked through.
4) To serve, place skewers over a bed of arugula and top skewers with peach salsa.
