Nutritional Facts

1 kabob with 2 tablespoons sauce (calculated without rice) equals 529 calories, 9 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 63 mg cholesterol, 273 mg sodium, 80 g carbohydrate, 13 g fiber, 28 g protein.

Directions

  1. Grate two onions; place in a large resealable plastic bag. Add the oil, garlic and chicken; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, bring figs and wine to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 50-60 minutes or until figs are plumped and tender. Remove figs; keep warm. Bring liquid to a boil; cook until reduced to 2/3 cup. Add the marmalade, preserves, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cook and stir for 5-6 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  3. Cut remaining onions into 1-in. pieces. Drain chicken; discard marinade. On six metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread the chicken, onions and mushrooms.
  4. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill kabobs, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 10-15 minutes or until juices run clear, turning occasionally.
  5. Serve kabobs with rice and reserved figs; drizzle with sauce. Garnish with mint and lemon if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
