Ingredients

1/2 cup orange juice
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp olive oil
2 large garlic clove(s), minced
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp dried oregano
2 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 32 chunks
12 small jalapeño pepper(s), halved lengthwise, seeded (do not touch seeds with bare hands)
2 sprays olive oil cooking spray


Mix orange and lemon juices, oil, garlic, cumin, paprika, salt and oregano in a resealable plastic food storage bag. Add chicken and peppers; close bag and turn to coat. Place bag on a plate on the bottom shelf in refrigerator and marinate for 2 to 8 hours.


Preheat grill, and thread chicken and pepper halves onto 8 skewers, using 4 pieces of chicken and 3 pieces of pepper per skewer; coat with cooking spray.


Grill skewers, turning often, until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 6 to 8 minutes; serve immediately. Leftovers can be refrigerated for up to 3 days. Yields 1 skewer per serving.
