Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Citrus Herb Marinade:
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 teaspoon orange rind
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Method

Citrus Herb Marinade: In large bowl, whisk together fresh coriander, oil, lemon and orange rinds, lemon and orange juices, garlic, ground coriander and hot pepper sauce; set aside.

Cut chicken into forty-eight 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes; add to marinade and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 8 hours.)

Onto each of 24 small skewers or sturdy toothpicks, thread 2 chicken cubes. Place, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on foil-lined baking sheet. Brush with remaining marinade in bowl; sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Broil, turning once, until chicken is browned and no longer pink inside, 6 to 8 minutes.
