1/2 cup red pepper jelly
1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
2/3 cup red wine vinegar, divided
1 teaspoon salt, divided
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1 1/2 pounds skinned and boned chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium-size red onion, cut into 8 wedges
2 medium-size yellow squash, cut into 1-inch pieces
24 small fresh okra (about 3/4 lb.)
8 (12-inch) metal skewers, divided
1/4 cup olive oil
How to Make It
Whisk together pepper jelly, red pepper, 1/3 cup red wine vinegar, and 1/2 tsp. each salt and pepper in a shallow dish or zip-top plastic freezer bag. Add chicken, turning to coat. Cover or seal, and chill 30 minutes, turning occasionally.
Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Thread onion pieces and next 2 ingredients alternately onto 5 skewers, leaving a 1/8-inch space between pieces. Place skewers in a shallow pan. Whisk together olive oil and remaining 1/3 cup vinegar, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Pour over vegetables.
Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Thread chicken onto remaining 3 skewers, leaving a 1/8-inch space between pieces.
Grill kabobs, covered with grill lid, 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until chicken is done and vegetables are crisp-tender.
My friend made these for a group of us and they were so good! I was surprised at how flavorful the chicken was after only marinating for 30 minutes. She said she followed the recipe exactly so I definitely want to try it myself.
