Serves: 12 kabobs
The peppery-sweet ginger, along with the tang from lime juice, and fresh cilantro are the key ingredients to this delicious chicken kabob. And, the chicken is guaranteed to be moist, tender and succulent.
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts- cut into about 2 inch pieces
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • ⅛ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tsp. lime zest
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • 3 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes
  • 1 green pepper- cleaned, chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • cooking spray
  • 12 inch skewers
  1. Rinse, drain and place all chicken pieces into a large zip lock plastic bag.
  2. For the marinade, in a medium bowl, whisk together the next 9 ingredients. Pour over the chicken into the plastic bag. Seal the bag and turn a few times to coat the chicken. Place the bag in a shallow dish. Marinate in refrigerator for 1 to 4 hours. Turning occasionally.
  3. When ready to make the kabobs. Begin to thread kabobs with the chicken first onto a skewer, then add a green pepper and then a grape tomato. Repeat 1 more time, and finish with chicken on top. You should have at least 3 pieces of chicken per skewer. Continue to thread all the skewers. Place each skewer onto a platter. If you have any grape tomatoes left, add them as the tops to some of the skewers.
  4. When all kabobs are ready, take the remaining marinade in the bag and pour it over the kabobs.
  5. Heat grill to medium heat. Spray gas or charcoal grill with cooking oil.
  6. Grill kabobs with cover closed for about 3 to 4 minutes, brush once with some of the marinade. Then discard the rest of the marinade.
  7. Turn kabobs over and grill for another 3 to 4 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked. Remove and let stand for a few minutes before serving, allowing metal skewers to cool down to handle. Serve warm.
  8. Yields: 12 chicken kabobs
