Grilled Orange Chicken Skewers
 
 
Serves: 8 skewers
Ingredients
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • ⅓ cup rice vinegar
  • ⅓ cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic (1 large clove)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger (1 inch piece)
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 lb boneless, skinless chicken thigh or breast, cut into 1-1/2 inch pieces
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons water
Instructions
  1. Soak 8 wooden skewers (about 8 to 10 inches in length) in water at least 30 minutes before grilling.
  2. Whisk together chicken broth, orange juice, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, orange zest, garlic, ginger and red pepper. Measure 1-3/4 cups and set aside. Put chicken in a re-sealable plastic bag and pour in remaining marinade, turning to coat chicken; marinate in the refrigerator 1 to 4 hours (because the chicken is cut into small pieces it does not need a long marinating time).
  3. For the sauce, in a small bowl whisk together cornstarch and water until smooth. Transfer the set aside marinade to a saucepan and bring to a boil; reduce heat and whisk in cornstarch mixture; cook over low heat until thickened and clear, about 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Thread chicken on skewers.
  5. Preheat grill to medium heat. Grill skewers just until chicken is cooked through turning a few times during cooking, about 10 minutes.
  6. Serve skewers drizzled with orange sauce.
