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

Cut the chicken thighs into 1 1/2″ pieces and place in a large bowl. 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 and vegetables alternately onto the skewers.
