THE SKEWERS – METAL OR BAMBOO?
WHAT SHOULD I SERVE WITH THESE?
Grilled Citrus Chicken Skewers
- 6 tablespoons fresh orange juice
- 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
- 1 teaspoon orange zest
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into 1" pieces
Combine all of the ingredients except for the chicken into a large bowl. Mix well.
Add chicken and coat well with marinade. Cover the bowl and refrigerate. Allow chicken to marinate for an hour up to 4 hours.
Remove chicken from the refrigerator and thread onto the skewers.
Preheat a grill pan or outdoor grill to medium-high heat.
Cook chicken skewers for 5-7 minutes on each side or until the chicken is cooked through.
If you're using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for at least 30 minutes up to 3 hours to avoid them from burning on the grill.
