Prep: 20 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min.

Ingredients

  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 8 medium kiwifruit, peeled and halved
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce

Directions

Combine garlic, lime juice, oil and salt. Add chicken and kiwi; turn to coat. Refrigerate, covered, up to 30 minutes.
Mix honey and chipotle peppers. Drain chicken and kiwi, discarding marinade. On eight metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread chicken and kiwi.
Grill, covered, on an oiled rack over medium heat, turning occasionally, until juices run clear, 10-12 minutes. During last 4 minutes, baste frequently with honey-chipotle mixture. Yield: 8 kabobs.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • An enzyme in kiwi fruit breaks down meat proteins so you'll find this chicken to be very tender. However, too much of a good thing can destroy your chicken, so stick to 30 minutes or less.
  • You won't believe how easy it is to peel a kiwi with our step-by-step how-to.
