Cut chicken into bite sized pieces. Place in a zip topped bag.
In a small bowl whisk together canola oil, lime juice and zest, chili powder, cumin, garlic, and salt. Pour over chicken, seal the bag, then toss to coat chicken with marinade. Place bag in a dish to catch drippings. Marinate for 30 minutes. If using wooden skewers, soak in water for at least 20 minutes.
While chicken is marinating, chop bell peppers and onions into 1-inch chunks. When chicken is finished marinating, thread chicken, onion, and peppers onto skewers.
When ready to cook, heat grill to medium-high. Lightly oil grill, place the kabobs on the grill, cover, and let cook until the chicken is fully cooked, about 6 to 8 minutes, turning the chicken twice throughout to cook evenly.
Remove the chicken kebabs to a serving plate and sprinkle with cilantro and a few squeezes of lime juice.
