  • 1 orange
  • ¼ cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons coarse ground mustard
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1½-inch pieces
  • 3 cups Warm Cabbage-Apple Slaw (see Associated Recipes)
  • 2¼ cups Packet-Grilled Potatoes (see Associated Recipes)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Zest and juice orange. Combine ⅓ cup of the orange juice, ½ tsp. of the orange zest, onion, mustard, ginger, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Place chicken in a sealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the chicken. Seal the bag; turn to coat the chicken. Refrigerate for 1 to 3 hours, turning once or twice.
  2. Preheat grill to medium. Drain the chicken, discarding the marinade. Thread the chicken onto nine 6- to 8-inch skewers, place on grill rack, and close grill cover. Grill the kebabs, turning once, until the chicken is no longer pink, about 15 minutes.
  3. Serve the kebabs with slaw and potatoes.
