Champagne® Mango and Chicken Kabobs

Meal type Appetizer, Main Dish
Misc Pre-preparable
Occasion Barbecue

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts (sliced lengthwise in 1 in. thick strips )
  • 1 Champagne® mango, peeled and seeded (cut in 1/2 in. thick slices)
  • 1 green bell pepper (cut into 1 in. squares)
  • 1 small onion (cut into 1 in. wedges)
  • 1 cup fresh pineapple (cut into 1 in. chunks)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fresh orange zest

Directions

Step 1 Heat up your grill to medium heat.
Step 2 Prepare the sauce by mixing the mustard, honey and orange zest thoroughly in a small bowl. Let it sit until you are ready to use it.
Step 3 Assemble the kabobs by alternating the ingredients on metal or wooden skewers. (Note: If you are using wood skewers, be sure to soak them for at least 30 minutes before you grill or they will get burnt).
Step 4 Grill the kabobs once the grill is hot, basting them frequently with the sauce using a basting brush. Turn kabobs over the grill as you cook them to ensure the chicken is fully cooked.
Step 5 When the chicken is cooked, transfer the kebobs to a plate and enjoy!

Note

This recipe was provided by loyal Champagne® mango fan, Ms. Marcia Reed, of Oklahoma. Ms. Reed enjoys cooking with mangos and is always looking for new ways to prepare them. For this recipe, Ms. Reed recommends wrapping the chicken on the kebob like a serpentine to ensure it cooks evenly on all sides without overcooking the mango.
