Sweet orange chicken kabobs
Begin by preparing your chicken. Rinse well and place onto a cutting board. Slice into 1-inch pieces and place into a bowl in the refrigerator, while you prepare your orange sauce and slice peppers if you have not done so already.
Mix barbecue sauce and frozen orange juice concentrate until well blended. Add salt and pepper to taste. Begin placing pineapple, peppers, and chicken onto skewers.
You may do this in any pattern such as
etc..., continue working this pattern until skewer is full.
Next, you will need to prepare your grill. Fill grill ¾ full with quality coals as this too will affect your flavor. Spray grill with nonstick grilling oil for best results. Light coals and allow to burn to medium high heat. Once desired temperature has been reached carefully, place your kabobs on the grill.
Be sure to leave about an inch between each kabob as you place them onto the grill. Divide your prepared sauce and place half aside. Use the remaining half of your orange sauce to baste your kabobs throughout cooking. Grill your kabobs for about 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked thoroughly. Remove from grill and serve with white rice.
The remaining sauce can be used to drizzle served kabobs or place in a small cup for dipping.
These kabobs are great for dinner parties. They are easy to cook and can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator covered until you are ready to cook.
Also, if you so desire, you may add different things to your kabobs such as onion pieces, mushrooms, plums, apples, and fresh tomatoes. This grilled chicken recipe is very versatile and the sauce can be used to create masterpieces with pork and beef as well!
