I've shared this recipe with the 15 Utah moms I am working with as part of the Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute's My Heart Challenge: Moms Edition and invite you to try this recipe as well. 


  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut lengthwise into three strips)
  • NOTE: You can also use chicken tenders
  • For the marinade:
  • 1 T canola oil
  • 1/2 t crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 T soy sauce
  • 1 t fresh ginger (minced)
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • lime juice (1 lime)


  1. Place a wooden (or metal) skewer through each chicken strip. Place on a plate or in a plastic container.
  2. Whisk all marinade ingredients together and pour over chicken skewers.
  3. Cover and refrigerate chicken for 1-2 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  5. Roast chicken skewers until cooked through (roughly 15 minutes). Grilling is also a great option.
