Orange Ginger Marinade

Here is a great marinade recipe, one that I usually use for grilled chicken kebabs. I haven't made it yet this summer because AJ appears to be allergic to oranges....hmmm....hoping he isn't. Because I love this recipe.

Orange Ginger Marinade
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- juice from 2 limes
- 1 tbsp minced garlic
- 2 tbsp minced ginger
- 1 tbsp minced green onion

Chicken Kebabs
- 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (can use thighs too) with marinade above
- 1 bell pepper, seeded and cut into large chunks
- 1 red pepper, seeded and cut into large chunks
- 1 yellow pepper, seeded and cut into large chunks
- 1 vidalia onion, peeled, halved and cut into chunks
- 1 pineapple, peeled and core removed, then cut into chunks
- cherry tomatoes

Combine all marinade ingredients, and pour over prepared chicken pieces, reserving some of the marinade for brushing on during grilling. I cut the chicken into 2 inch cubes for making the kebabs before marinating. Let sit in fridge for 4-6 hours.

I have metal skewers, but you can use wooden ones if you soak them in water first.

Assemble kebabs and grill, brushing with reserved marinade. For an extra treat, I put the leftover pineapple on it's own skewer and grill it.

The best part about kebabs like this is that all you need are some dinner rolls and you have a complete meal. :)

  1. Instead of Orange Juice, maybe you can use a can of apricot preserves...or one of those really thick fruit mix concoctions w/out oranges.
