Cut each chicken thigh in half (or each breast into quarters).

In large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, maple syrup, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Add chicken; turn to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator for 4 hours.

Onto skewers, alternately thread chicken and green pepper. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until juices run clear for thighs, about 12 minutes, or until no longer pink inside for breasts, about 18 minutes. (Or broil kabobs, 6 inches/15 cm from heat, turning once, until golden brown and juices run clear for thighs, about 8 minutes, or until no longer pink inside for breasts, about 12 minutes.)

Additional information :

Freeze-ahead: Divide chicken between 2 large resealable plastic freezer bags; pour marinade over chicken. Press out air and seal bags. Freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator. Skewer with peppers and grill or broil as directed.

Tip: We don't suggest freezing the skewered chicken and peppers in plastic freezer bags because the sharp skewers can poke holes in the bags, creating leaks and a messy freezer cleanup.
