Orange Glazed Chicken & Sweet Potato Kabobs

  • 2 large sweet potatoes (or yams), peeled and cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 8 kebab skewers
  • 4 (4 to 6 ounce) boneless and skinless chicken breasts cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (more or less if desired)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  1. Preheat a grill to medium high heat or an oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water.
  3. On each skewer, place one cube of chicken and one cube of boiled sweet potato. Repeat until the skewer is full.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, combine orange juice, crushed red pepper, honey, olive oil, and ginger. Brush each skewer with the mixture. Place on a baking sheet or directly on the grill and cook for 6 to 8 minutes. Turn and brush with more of the orange juice mixture. Bake for another 6 to 8 minutes until chicken is firm and cooked through and potatoes are soft.
  5. Remove from the oven or off the grill and sprinkled with fresh thyme and fresh parsley. Serve immediately and enjoy!
