Now that it’s lighter longer and the weather is warm, we’ve been grilling a lot. So many grill recipes are simple and quick – perfect for summer! Plus, when we use the grill when we’re not heating up the kitchen. It’s a win-win.
Since we’re grilling so often, I’ve been trying out recipes I’ve had bookmarked for a while but haven’t gotten to yet. Most of them are making me wish I got to them sooner! Like this one. It’s delicious.
Jerk Mango Chicken Kebabs
(from Homemade By Holman)
Juice of 1 limes
1 1/2 t. chili powder
1/2 t. cayenne pepper
1 t. chopped fresh thyme
1/4 t. allspice
1/4 t. salt
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 t. brown sugar
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 red bell pepper
In a large ziplock bag, combine the lime juice, chili powder, cayenne pepper, thyme, allspice, salt, garlic, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut the chicken in to 1″ chunks and add to the bag. Toss the chicken in the marinade and refrigerate for an hour.
Cut the mango and red pepper into chunks. If using wooden skewers, soak in salted water for at least thirty minutes.
Preheat the grill to medium high heat. Thread marinade chicken, mango and red pepper chunks onto skewers. Grill for 5-7 minutes, turning frequently, until chicken is cooked through.
