This version of the Kickin’ Chicken Kebabs came to be by accident. If you were at #ChickenChat last week then you may remember my dilemma. I had the recipe written out (I even shared a photo on Twitter because I was so excited) and then I realized I was out of Sriracha. Sriracha was key but I was sick with a summer cold and refused to leave my PJs, so I made do with what I did have: Valentina Hot Sauce. You guys, if you haven’t tried this Mexican hot sauce yet, do it. It’s not that spicy and adds a lot of flavor. Thankfully the Valentina hot sauce worked well, I’ll do up a sriracha version of this recipe another time.

The sauce itself was a branch of the Thai dipping sauce I use in the Paleo Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps recipe. After a few tastes, it felt like it was missing something and that is when I added the honey. Honey always goes good with peanut butter.

Raised By a Canadian Farmer

I couldn’t have made these spicy chicken kebabs without the help of Canadian Chicken. When I shop for chicken, I look for the “Raised By a Canadian Farmer” logo. Why? Because when I buy Canadian chicken, I’m helping our economy and supporting local farming families. Pheobe Buffay is right, there is not such thing as a selfless good deed because supporting Canadian Chicken makes me feel good. It makes me feel like I’m making a difference in our country (while supporting my love for chicken).

I recommend that you make up the marinade at least two hours in advance. However, the longer you can marinate the chicken, the better.

I love all the colors in this dish. Even raw, the chicken looks edible. Well, almost…I still know it’s raw.
