Chicken Skewers with Sweet & Spicy Marmalade Recipe

“This chicken is delicious! My father-in-law loved it; he said it reminded him of growing up in Southern California. What a great way to bring summer sunshine to winter days!” —Laurel Dalzell, Mantecca, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + marinating Broil: 5 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • SAUCE:
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
  • 3/4 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon thawed orange juice concentrate
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. Preheat broiler. Pound chicken breasts with a meat mallet to 1/4-in. thickness; cut lengthwise into 1-in.-wide strips. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine oil, soy sauce, garlic and pepper. Add chicken; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
  • 2. In a small saucepan, heat butter over medium-high heat. Add jalapeno; cook and stir until tender. Add ginger; cook 1 minute longer. Reduce heat; stir in marmalade, lime juice, orange juice concentrate and salt.
  • 3. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. Thread chicken strips, weaving back and forth, onto eight metal or soaked wooden skewers. Place in a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Broil 6 in. from heat 2-4 minutes on each side or until chicken is no longer pink. Serve with sauce. Yield: 8 servings (1 cup sauce)
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"Loved this recipe! I have never broiled chicken in the oven like this and was a little hesitant, but it turned out great! Loved the sauce too! Next time I will leave a little of the insides of the jalapenos for more kick! It wasn't spicy at all. Will defintely make again...can't wait to serve it to company!"
