Make Grilled chicken skewers (chicken kebabs) with a simple spice rub. The spice rub keeps chicken breast chunks tender and juicy, and I add onions, peppers. Brush grill grates carefully with a bit of oil. Whisk together the orange juice, lime juice, oil, chili powder, and garlic.

Mike's Two Way Grilled Chicken Skewers step by step

  1. Brine four one pound fat free chicken breasts in 35° ice water..
  2. Add 1/2 cup salt, 1/2 cup sugar 1 tbsp granulated garlic and 1 tbsp granulated onion for 2 hours..
  3. Cut breasts into 1.5" even cubes for even grilling..
  4. Separate chicken cubes evenly in to two large Ziplock bags and season. Marinate both for 1 hour or longer. Reserve any oils and Siriacha Chili mixtures for grilling/coating later..
  5. Siriacha Hot Chili Sauce and Siriacha Chili Garlic Sauce pictured..
  6. Chop all desired vegetables..
  7. Soak wooden skewers in water for 5 minutes. Or, you can use metal skewers. Thread chicken on skewers with a 2.5" onion slice in between each chicken cube for flavor and even grilling..
  8. Grill for 7 to 10 minutes [or until juices run clear] and make sure you get a good char on each. Don't over grill tho. Coat with reserved Siriachas and Garlic olive oil as they grill. Know that the Siriacha Skewers will be much hotter with the additional sauce at finish..
  9. Feel free to grill your vegetables as well for 7 to 10 minutes on indirect heat. Just lightly coat with olive oil and listed seasonings if so..
  10. Grill breads until charred. Just coat lightly with olive oil before..
  11. Wrap chicken up in 6"Naan or 6" flour tortillas..
  12. Serve on grilled Naan bread or flour tortillas. Construct with the vegetables you and your guests desire. Enjoy! Especially with ice cold beers in thick frosty mugs!.

Once the grill is ready, place the skewers on the grill grate and grill, turning every few minutes so all sides cook evenly. Thread chicken and chunks of red onion onto skewers. Heat your grill/braai/barbecue or a griddle pan on the stove. Because the chicken cooks relatively quickly high heat works well for this recipe. Once you're ready to grill the chicken, thread it onto the skewers leaving about two inches at the top and bottom.
