Cerveza-Marinated Chicken Skewers
The cerveza marinade gives the grilled chicken a delicious malty tang. Even my kids ate it.
You will need:
1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 cup beer
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray
Combine beer, lemon juice, oil, paprika, oregano, salt, and pepper in a zip-lock bag; add the chicken. Squeeze out the air and seal the bag; shake lightly and turn to coat the chicken. Refrigetate 1 hour, turning the bag occasionally.
Transfer the marinade from the bag to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer 5 minutes
If using wooden skewers, soak them in hot water 30 minutes (to prevent them from burning).
Spray the broiler or grill rack with nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray; preheat; or, alternatively - spray a nonstick ridged grill pan with nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray and set over high heat.
Divide the chicken among 12 8-inch skewers (approximately 2 chunks per skewer). Grill or broil the skewers 4 inches from the heat until lightly browned, about 3 minutes - turn and brush with the reduced marinade. Cook unil the chicken is thoroughly done, about 2 more minutes, and serve immediately.
