  1. Make a marinade by combining the paprika, cumin, coriander, thyme, garlic, oil, vinegar and some seasoning in a large bowl. Add the chicken and toss to coat. Cover and chill overnight, or for at least 2 hours.
  2. Meanwhile, combine all the dipping sauce ingredients in bowl. Cover and chill until needed.
  3. Soak 16 wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes (this will prevent them from catching during cooking).
  4. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Thread the chicken onto the skewers and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Grill the chicken (in batches, if needed) for 5 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
  5. Arrange the chicken skewers on a platter and serve with the dipping sauce and extra lime wedges.
