  • Serve the Adobo Chicken skewers with a generous drizzle of Jalapeno Ranch Dressing and extra on the side.

This dish is a delightful fusion of spices and freshness. Whether hosting friends or preparing a weeknight meal, this recipe is a winner!

NOTE: For a vibrant salad, toss the grilled Adobo Chicken with a medley of colorful vegetables, leafy greens, and a drizzle of the Jalapeno Ranch Dressing. The result? A salad that's not only visually appealing but bursting with bold flavors.

If you prefer a handheld delight, wrap the Adobo Chicken in a soft low-carb tortilla, wrap, or lettuce leaves, adding your favorite veggies and a generous dollop of the Jalapeno Ranch Dressing.

This versatile dish is perfect for a quick and wholesome lunch or dinner. It offers a satisfying crunch and a kick of heat in every bite.
