Step 1In a small bowl, squeeze juice from two limes. Cut remaining lime into 6 six wedges and reserve. Add canola oil, garlic, ginger, allspice, thyme, and cayenne pepper to lime juice. Whisk together. Place chicken in large, resealable plastic bag with half of marinade mixture. Marinate chicken in refrigerator overnight or for at least 8 hours, turning occasionally
Step 2Remove chicken from bag, discarding leftover marinade. Alternating chicken and vegetables, thread 6 six skewers, beginning and ending with chicken pieces.
Step 3Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Step 4Place skewers on grill rack already coated with canola oil cooking spray. Cook 12 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center, turning frequently. Be careful not to overcook. Remove from grill, place on serving platter and spoon remaining reserved marinade over all. Serve with lime wedges.
