Caribbean Chicken Kebabs with Lime-Cayenne Butter

Even though it was raining, I was bound and determined to grill these kebabs today, and I’m so glad we did!  These flavorful kebabs remind of one of my favorite dishes from Pappasitos Cantina.  The marinade is simple enough, but the lime-cayenne butter (also simple to make!) takes these kebabs to the next level.  The next time I make these, I might put all of the chicken together and all of the veggies together to grill (as recommended by Alton Brown).  I’d also recommend making another little batch of that delicious Lime Cayenne Butter for serving.

from Coastal Living


  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 sweet onion, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
  • 2 orange or red bell peppers, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 pineapple, cubed
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes
  • Lime-Cayenne Butter (recipe below)

Combine first 4 ingredients in a shallow dish or large plastic zip-top bag.  Add chicken and onion, stirring to cover.  Refrigerate 3 to 6 hours.

Drain chicken and onion; discard marinade.  Thread chicken, onion, and next 3 ingredients on 10 to 12 (10-inch) skewer.  Brush with Lime-Cayenne Butter.

Grill over medium heat (325-350 degrees F) for 8 to 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, turning and basting several times with Lime-Cayenne Butter.  Makes 4 servings.
