Well let me tell you, this experiment was a long shot! I wasn’t sure how this was gonna turn out and was prepared to throw it in the trash. I was pleasantly surprised though that this was actually very tasty. It is a different flavor than I’ve ever had before and may not be for everyone but the chicken practically melts in the mouth! It’s worth trying in a small batch to see what you think.
I was really worried when hubby came home and had his taste testing because fruit and meat just doesn’t go together in his mind. Of course, I didn’t tell him what was in it before he tried it. As I anxiously awaited his response to his first bite, I was just bursting to tell him what was in it. First bite and his face lit up and he said, “WOW that is delicious!” and then asked what was in it. Boy was he surprised! So, without further ado….
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chunked
Juice of 2 oranges
1 c frozen pineapple chunked, thawed, divided
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground mustard
1/4 tsp oregano
1 tbsp braggs
your favorite veggies chopped into large chunks
(The chicken will be marinated. I used my vacuum sealer marinade dish and vacuum sealed, placed in fridge and marinated for 4 hours. A baggie or other covered dish should work fine.)
Add chicken, orange juice, cinnamon, ground mustard, oregano, and braggs to container. Dice 1/2 of the 1 c of pineapple chunks and add to the container. Seal and marinate for at least 4 hours.
Make your kabobs using your favorite veggies and the other 1/2 c pineapple chunks. I used the pineapple, purple onions, mushrooms, red bell peppers, and grape tomatoes
