Grilled Chicken and Mango Kabobs

[migration] empty title 2 Author: Canadian Living Credits: [migration] empty title 2

Succulent chunks of chicken and colourful skewers of fruit and vegetables make a pretty plate. Setting part of the marinade aside for basting the chicken ensures that you don't transfer raw chicken juices to the cooked food.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon grated lime rind
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts 1 lb (500 g) total
  • 2 teaspoons liquid honey
  • 2 mangoes
  • 1 sweet red pepper
  • 1 red onion cut_in 1-inch chunks
  • 1 sweet onion cut_in 1-inch chunks

Method

In small bowl, whisk together lime rind and juice, oil, garlic, chili powder, salt and cayenne pepper.

Cut chicken into 1-inch (2.5 cm) cubes; place in separate bowl. Pour half of the marinade over top and toss to coat; let stand for 20 minutes. Stir honey into remaining marinade; set aside. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate separately for up to 4 hours.)

Meanwhile, cut off mango flesh from each side of pit. Cut grid pattern of 3/4-inch (2 cm) squares in flesh of each side down to (but not through) skin. Gently push skin to turn inside out; cut off flesh. Chop any flesh left on pit.

Core, seed and cut red pepper into 3/4-inch (2 cm) pieces. Onto each of 4 long or 8 short skewers, alternately thread mango and red pepper pieces; brush with half of the reserved honey marinade.

Alternately thread chicken and 2 or 3 onion pieces onto each of 4 more long or 8 short skewers. Discard marinade used for chicken. Place kabobs on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning and basting chicken once with remaining honey marinade, until fruit is softened and chicken is no longer pink inside, about 8 minutes.
