SWEET CHILI CHICKEN SKEWERS

 

PREP TIME: 1 hour 30 minutes
SERVINGS: 2 servings

A sweet and spicy chili glaze is the perfect summer sauce for grilled chicken or seafood.


INGREDIENTS: 
1 cup orange juice
1 tsp red pepper flakes
2 T ginger, minced
2 T garlic, minced
¼ cup oil
½ tsp salt
Zest & juice of 2 limes
¼ cup cilantro, minced (plus extra for garnish)
2 chicken breasts, sliced into long strips
1 cup Jam Jar Sweet White
¼ cup rice vinegar
1 T sweet chili sauce
1 tsp garlic, minced



DIRECTIONS: 
Combine ½ cup orange juice and ½ tsp red pepper flakes with ginger through cilantro in a shallow glass dish. Mix well and add chicken breasts to marinate for at least 1 hour (or overnight) in the refrigerator.

Preheat grill to medium heat. In a small saucepan, combine remaining ½ cup orange juice and ½ tsp red pepper flakes with Jam Jar Sweet White, rice vinegar, chili sauce and minced garlic. Mix well and bring to a boil over high heat on the stove top. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce becomes syrupy (about 20 minutes).

Remove chicken from marinate and pierce onto skewers. Grill for about 4 minutes each side, repeatedly basting with the sweet chili sauce. Remove from grill, add additional sauce if desired and garnish with extra minced cilantro and lime wedges.
