These Curry Chicken Skewers with Lime make a great, quick weeknight meal that can be on your dinner table in less than 30 minutes. Is there anyone who doesn’t need more delicious and easy to prepare dishes in their arsenal? I know that I’m looking for as many as I can get right now – My life has been a bit crazy with work, blogging, travel and wedding planning. We’re less than four months away now… I cannot believe it. PS – I still haven’t booked a florist. But our wedding invites did just arrive in the mail today!

The steps to make these Curry Chicken Skewers are super simple. The night before you plan to make them, cut your chicken into pieces and stick them in the curry marinade that’s made with 5 simple ingredients:

  1. Curry Powder
  2. Sriracha
  3. Lime Juice
  4. Oil
  5. Agave (or Honey)

The overnight marinade really helps the curry flavors to permeate the meat. But, if you’re running short on time, you could also marinate them for as little as four hours. Then, when you’re ready to eat, simply thread the marinated chicken onto skewers and grill them up. I like to serve these accompanied with a bowl of rice and a daikon radish salad.

But, let’s not forget the wine too. You may have noticed I never forget the wine… 

To go with these tangy, warmly spiced Curry Chicken Skewers I chose a couple of wines that have a good bit of acidity and bright citrus flavors, both from 90+ Cellars. I’ve talked about their brand before (here, here and here), and their unique story of how they seek out spectacular wines from notable wineries that may have a bit extra for sale. The first bottle that I chose was their dry, fresh Lot 141 Prosecco. Its aromas of lime, and juicy stone fruits had just the right hint of acidity to pair with these delicious curry chicken skewers. And we can never forget the Rosé, right? Their Lot 33 Rosé from France (I love French rosés) had hints of strawberries and lime, and it too had a slight bit of effervescence. With just a hint of sweetness, those berry flavors perfectly complimented the slight bit of heat in these curry chicken skewers too… It was hard to chose a favorite wine, so I had a couple glasses of each… Ooops.

I teamed up with 90+ Cellars to bring you this post. As always, all opinions are my own. 

Wine Pairings for Curry Chicken Skewers with Lime:

  • Prosecco with its bright effervescence and notes of citrus is a perfect match for these richly spiced chicken skewers that have a hint of lime.
  • An off-dry Riesling will also pair nicely, as will a Gewurztraminer. The slight sweetness meets its match with the spiciness of the curry.
  • Rosé is another great match. The berry flavors perfectly compliment Indian and spicy Thai dishes.

    I’m veggie, but this sauce would work great on grilled tofu skewers, too! And YES – I’m all for cooking outside when it gets ghastly hot (like it’ll be later in the week).

    Curry chicken is so flavorful as it is, and then you tossed it on the grill. I bet the flavors explode.
