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.

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.
