Keto Jerk Chicken Skewers

Each one of these chicken skewers is spicy, a little sweet, and coated in complex flavors! For a good protein to fat balance, you can enjoy just one skewer with your full meal, or you can enjoy them individually as a snack. These are also great for meal prepping!

    This is the best jerk chicken recipe. I didn’t skewer this recipe, I used boneless skinless thighs. They turned out delicious.

      I don't have skewers and would rather just roast or bake this. Any suggestions on how to alter the cooking time/temp preparation?

        You will still want to arrange your chicken cubes on a rack places over a sheet tray to catch drippings. If you bake in a dish, you will have a lot of liquid. So no change to the cooking time and temp!

      This is an amazing recipe! It’s my go to. I make it a couple times a week and take to work for a snack. I dip it in tzatziki sauce and it’s amazing!

        This is so good. I love making a big batch to nibble on over a couple days.

          Can this be done without the coconut milk like a dry rub instead?

            You could omit the coconut milk and use the spices as a dry rub. If you need an alternative to the coconut milk due to allergies, you could use a dairy milk or olive oil.
