EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Like it spicy? Use a large jalapeño or more than one. Prefer less heat? Remove the seeds before adding the jalapeño to the blender.

You can cook the skewers indoors on a stovetop grill pan over medium heat.

The more the marinated! For ultimate flavor, marinate the chicken up to 8 hours, tightly covered.
