Orange Chili Chicken Skewers Recipe


  • 1/3 cup white wine
  • 2/3 cup orange juice (or the juice of 2 oranges)
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1-2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, to taste
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 lb. pearl onions, halved, keeping root-end in tact
  • 3 green bell peppers, seeded and cut into 1-inch squares
  • 10 oz. cherry, grape, or teardrop tomatoes, in assorted colors
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Special Equipment:

  • 10-12″ metal skewers (If using bamboo skewers, be sure to soak them in water for at least 30 minutes, to reduce possibility of burning.)

Cooking Instructions:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together wine, orange juice garlic, red pepper flakes.
  2. Add chicken cubes and toss to combine, making sure all pieces are covered in marinade.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  4. When ready to cook, preheat a stovetop grill pan over medium-high heat. If using a gas or charcoal grill, heat to medium-high.
  5. Remove the chicken from the marinade and pour the leftover marinade into a saucepan.
  6. Heat marinade over medium-high heat and boil for at least 5 minutes. The marinade will reduce and thicken.
  7. Build the skewers, threading the chicken, onions, peppers, and tomatoes as desired.
  8. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  9. Place the skewers on the heated grill or grill pan, and cook for 10-12 minutes, basting frequently with the reduced marinade and turning often, for even cooking on all sides.
  10. Remove to a platter.
  11. Drizzle with olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  12. Serve with remaining reduced marinade alongside as a dipping sauce.
  13. MANGIA!!
