Orange & Ginger Chicken Kabobs



We busted the BBQ out this weekend while watching the soccer match with the US (man was my tummy in knots). Kabobs are fun lets face it, they are tasty, colorful, and handheld - which is great while roaming around chatting with friends and praying for the US soccer team to win.


The below kabobs did not get my toddlers seal of approval, but they do get mine and well....I am older - wiser??





INGREDIENTS

2 medium oranges, zested
1/2 cup of fresh OJ
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tsp Sesame Oil
1 Tbsp Fresh zested ginger
1/2 Tbsp rice vinegar
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 Tbsp red pepper flakes
- Chicken or beef for kabobs & Mushrooms & Pineapple (or whatever you like on your kabobs)





DIRECTIONS

Combine all ingredients together and pour over chicken or beef, I left my chicken sitting covered in this marinade for 1 hour prior to grilling.


Assemble kabobs and then grill until the chicken is blackened a bit on the outside, this chicken is so moist!
