How to Make Chicken Kebabs

To make the orange juice chicken marinade whisk the olive oil, fresh rosemary, orange zest, orange juice, garlic, ancho chile powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper in a measuring cup or small bowl. This will produce about 1/2 cup of marinade.

Cut the chicken thighs into 1 1/2″ pieces and place in a large bowl. You can also use boneless skinless chicken breasts.

Pour 1/4 cup of the marinade over the chicken and toss to coat evenly. Chill for at least one hour.

I make mine in the morning and let them marinate all day.

When ready to grill chop the vegetables into about 1/2″ pieces, place in a large bowl.

Pour the remaining marinade over the vegetables and toss to coat evenly.

Choose your favorite vegetables, just make sure they will cook in the same amount of time as the chicken. We used zucchini, yellow bell pepper, mushrooms, and red onion.

Thread the chicken pieces and vegetables alternately onto the skewers.

Preheat your grill to a medium high heat.

Grill the kebabs for 13-15 minutes, turning occasionally until no longer pink in the center and reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. We usually only turn them one time.
