Citrus Chicken Kabobs

The marinade for the chicken makes these morsels tasty and juicy. Make mini-kebobs if you're expecting a large crowd and are making a lot of different appetizers.
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts -- cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 medium onion -- cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 green pepper -- cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 orange pepper -- cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 8 oz. can pineapple chunks -- drained, juice reserved
  • 2 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 c. orange juice
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 cloves garlic -- minced
  • 2 T. olive oil

Using long metal skewers -- or bamboo ones that have been soaked in water -- thread the chicken, vegetables and pineapple on in an order that places the chicken between vegetables. Set aside in a large pan.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a jar. Seal and shake vigorously to mix. Pour the marinade over the skewers and refrigerate for 30 minutes -- turning the skewers once halfway through.

Prepare the grill and grill the kebobs for about 20 minutes -- turning them once halfway through. Serve on the skewers or place all of the grilled items together in a large bowl.

  • Yields: 6-8 servings
